@manda21:  I don’t think its a problem for him to get another part time job… he just needs to make getting a job HIS JOB and it should happen sooner or later with a humble approach.

He needs a reality check that he isnt a good student and nursing school is INTENSE although it looks like a way to “take the easy way out” of the job hunt and go back to school… 

You guys need an honest talk about the realities of future and how suicide does NOTHING for anyone… he probbaly should humble himself and indeed TAKE any job because its a JOB and anything is better than nothing!


So sorry you’re in this situation… I had an ex that would threaten suicide if I broke up with him or left him and was constantly depressed and self-deprecating and nothing really ever came of it –  just attention seeking (we were young) but the point is, if he is a logical person, suicide is ridiculous.


Communication is key though…

be honest & talk about all your options as a couple and think objectively. Going back to school seems like an easy answer to unemployment but if you’re a notoriously sketchy student looking into an INTENSE program just for the possible paycheck 5-10 years from now, its not a good idea.
