Don't Feel Left Out

by Robert Culpepper

There are numerous people in the US, and all over the world for that matter, that are disabled in one form or another. The fate of most of those people is to sit home with nothing to occupy their time. This is a bad situation to be in. Loneliness sets in along with probably depression stemming from a lack of a sense of self-worth. I have been disabled and homebound for a little over five years now. During that time, I have gone through the stages of loneliness, depression, feelings of worthlessness, and have even wondered at times, "What's the use of continuing to exist in this manner?"

Well, there is no use in continuing to exist in this manner. You can do something to make your existence better. You can even turn that existence back into a fulfilling life again. Look around you and find you something to do to occupy your time and your mind. Even if it is volunteer work at your local hospital, Red Cross, veterans' care facility, etc., it will give you a reason to feel good about yourself. But if you can find a way to make a little extra income at the same time, that doesn't hurt, either. You may not make a lot of money at it, but the satisfaction of accomplishing something is worth a lot. But, who knows, you might find something you are really good at and make a lot of money from it. You never know until you try.

Think about it. If you have a computer with an internet connection the possibilities are endless. There are numerous opportunities on the internet to work at home and achieve a little independence from your boredom and feelings of worthlessness. (It is important to note here that you have to be very careful in choosing your work at home opportunities because some of them are rip-off's in one form or another. More on that later.) Even if you are disabled from holding a steady job in the public workplace, you can sit down at your computer for an hour or so at a time and be more productive than you ever imagined. I know, it took me a little while to figure that out myself, but if by writing this article I can help just one person to get a new lease on life then I have found mine.

I started out looking for something to do while sitting at home alone and I came up with a few work at home programs that I felt comfortable with and I just wanted to share that with all the other homebound persons. I have found that internet marketing is my niche. I love it. I have gotten involved with it and am having a lot of fun with it and the potential is there to make a lot of money. All you have to do is hook up with the right program and with the right advertising it can take off like a forest fire.

You have to really do your homework and be very careful which work at home opportunities you trust, because like I said earlier, some of them can be just a rip-off. Look out for things like requests for money up front and no delivery. Most of the worthwhile ventures out there allow you to sign up as an affiliate or such on a free trial basis. With that free membership you can look around and see what the opportunity is all about. If you like it and feel that you can trust it, then you can go further. But if you find that you don't like it or don't trust it, then run, don't walk, but get away from there.

So, fire up your computer, get on the internet, and do some research. Look around and see if you can come up with something you like. Like I said the opportunities are endless.
