Thanks for the comment.
First, maybe I gave the wrong impression. It isnt that he isnt willing to work.
He had a job up til 3 months ago. But there are NO jobs here. Not in mining, which is all he has done for the last 25 years.
It is just this location. There is nothing here. One market, one gas station. No jobs.
I just hate living here.
I hate the circumstances that have been thrust upon the people in the coal mining family.
We were just raped of our jobs. Of our livliehood. Our ability to stay in our homes and earn a living.
But now, that is gone and if we stay here, we will just slowly fall into poverty, because unemployment only lasts so long.
Then, its either, go out into the world searching for a job, or, sit here and fade away.
I am ready to go.
He has no confidence in himself. Beat down and never given a chance, by the same father he now cares for.
I try to build him up, try to boost his confidence, offer to help him gain skills, by teaching him the computer, etc.
Yet, I am pushing him.
I am trying to make him into someone he isnt, etc, etc.
Really, all I am trying to do is get the bills paid.
When I say there are no jobs here. There is NOTHING here.
25 miles to the nearest fast food restaurant.
No factories.
No industry.
Nothing.
So, the only solution is to no longer BE HERE.
But I have to sit back and let him reach his own point of no return.
