AVOID THE JOB CENTRE AND ANY EMPLOYMENT BENIFITS OR ENTITLEMENTS – ALSO AVOID THE ENTITLEMENTS MENTALITY
The reason I’m shouting this is because the government agencies along these lines are soul sucking, life destroying and keep you trapped destroying your creativity etc.
I was never ashamed of anything or my disabilities til I claimed ESA, JOBSEEKERS and UNIVERSAL CREDIT. I’d never been in a rut or anything til I signed my soul over to ’em too.
But now I know they must be avoided at all costs if you truly want to be successful as a creative. Since being kicked off and having nothing coming in since August 2017 I have found I’ve broken an addiction of living pay cheque or being reliant on money and income in the 9-5 rat race as well as my creativity coming back with a glorious vengeance.
Burn all your bridges & burn all your boats to take the island.
