What is stopping me?

Posted by what is stopping me? on 8/8/2022 9:35:33 pm

i am in 50s and lost my job. with big difficulty i found a much junior grade job with half of salary what i used to get in previous job. i accepted this job offer to remain in kuwait and search for better job. getting better job is somewhat difficult today. somehow i am not comfortable in this job from the begining and too much politics is done against me. even my boss is bullying me constantly and i feel nervous whenever i see or meet him. this is affecting me badly and all the time i am in tension and unable to sleep in night. i am very introvert person, quiet and never shout on anyone and can not think to harm anyone. although i have discharged my responsibilities but i am not mentally prepared to go back to india. i want to stay some more time to recover financial loss due to working in half salary. also in this age it is difficlut to get job in india. i am in adminstration job. many times i thought to quit and go back but unable to do so.

i don''t know when will i have courage to respond to the boss and/or quit in spur of the moment.

i don''t know what is stopping me......

News about Car Older than 10 Years

Posted by sidd on 8/7/2022 10:19:58 am

due to recent news, which was proposed to cut down car older than 10 yrs have affected the price of old cars
look like now a days no one is willing to buy used cars which are older than 5 yrs

actually that makes sense
rather then spending on something which will be worthless after few years
one should buy new car, by cash or installment.

How to deal with the situation?

Posted by how to deal with the situation? on 8/6/2022 11:09:15 am

20 years back, i was working in india. after i came kuwait i kept friendly relations with old colleagues via e-mail and wa but never ever met them. yesterday old colleague called me saying his daughter''s wedding is fixed but he is finding very difficult to arrange money since he has ongoing home loan and requested me to help financially, saying he will return money as and when he is able without interest. he is asking rs. 3 lakhs for help. now my questions are as below:

1. i was expecting he would ask rs. 25000 but he is asking huge amount. since there will not be any written agreement on loan, just trust only, is it ok to give him huge amount since i have never met him in last 20 years and don''t know which area he lives in. i have left the city i used to work and settled in some other city 1500 km away from him.

2. i am ready to pay rs. 20000 as gift (without return) to his daughter and little help to him.

how to say no to him for not helping him huge amount. i don''t want to spoil my relations with him and i want to help him too. my financial situation is not much better and managing with little salary.

kindly advise what would you do in my situation.
