    I'm worried about my Future everyday

    I have No Standard Driver's Licence
    I may be Restricted Beyond Ideal and Need

    (I don't know how to Apply for Jobs Online)
    (Or what or which Is the most effective way In Applying)
    I have No Direction for Ideal Manageable Job Occupations, or which Job Industries I like
    I have No Dream Ambition for my Life
    TAFE offers nothing, maybe only Just One Course that I'd be Interested In, But I don't want to pursue something for the sake of It without being sure
    UNIVERSITY has never been for me or of Interest (That's a guaranteed NO)

    I have No Supportive Friends
    I have No Spouse or Partner

    I don't know how to Pay Bills or Rent

    If I ever need a Accommodation, I wouldn't get a Rental Property If I haven't been Working for at least 6 Months at least, and without a Full Time Job I couldn't afford Rent, Especially In Melbourne, Australia

    *My Father Is a Bill Payer and only that, He Is a Absent and Selfish who doesn't care or think about my Future and Problems, and deeply would prefer me not living here, at Home
    *My Mother loves me Un conditionally but she can be Vauge and doesn't know what's coming next (I don't know If she wants to forget about It) because she would find It distressing

    Hello BabySteps, and can we offer you a warm welcome and by your post shows that you're not particularly feeling any positivity and only added on by this lockdown that complicates everything.

    If you do get a rental property, and just saying, is that weekly or fortnightly payments can be taken out of your bank account without you doing anything, that's what happens with my rent.

    I can't tell you what to do, however, if you're not interested in uni then, don't push yourself towards completing a course.

    Can I also mention that Kids Helpline, people up to 25 years old on 1800 55 1800 or web-chat can be contacted.

    If you want to, can you please get back to us as there are lots of different issues we'd love to talk about.
