The other day I was waiting in the line and I couldn't help overhearing a man explaining to his friend how desperate he is because he cannot find a job for already six months now, here in the Netherlands. His girlfriend is working and he is all day long at home in front of a screen looking for a job. He feels enormous stress and the possibility of him going back to his home country is getting bigger and bigger every day and is making him lose his sleep. I wish I could jump into the conversation and talk with him about this challenge, but that would tell that I was overhearing (oops!).
However, after that, I decided that:
