Nick Vujicic is an inspiration to me, this man had seriously considered suicide at one point - and who could blame him with all the obstacles he's had to face.

He's proof positive that things can improve for those who dare to dream of a better life.

There is a good motto I live by which is "Look at those beneath you" - It means don't look at the jones's instead look at the people who have less than you and you'll be grateful.

As canadians (except for divorced fathers, we're slaves) we have such a better life than almost everybody in the world.

No I couldn't - I was looking at my last pay cheque

Gross: 2500$
Net: 666$

If that isn't slavery, what is?

There's people out there who don't even have a paycheck through no fault of their own --- besides a good chunk of that is for your children no?

Agree with Link. Would gladly take the $600 paycheck to sit at home in free housing rather than putting in 11 hour work days for same. But once you're a divorcee it's not even an option for you.

I am one of the top paid people in my project... so why was I was the one going home on the bus to sleep in someone elses basement and eat whatever dried goods I happen to have left on my book shelf for the week?
