A long, long time ago I heard the excellent Bruce Williams on the radio - this would have been in 1985. A caller was whining ...

Mill closed down, unemployment is running out, no jobs, no opportunity


But my life is here, I grew up here, family...

My friend, you gotta move.

But ..

And Bruce laid it down the way he does, with a lot of compassion and directness.

If there are no jobs, no opportunity where you are, you can stay or go.

If you stay you're accepting a hopeless situation. Stop whining, it won't change anything and you're annoying people.

If you go you could end up in a worse situation .. but it's probably gonna be a lot better.
