Why Employment Is Important
A Blog By Macena Mason
Employment is important because it expands your knowledge in many ways. You get to meet and learn from many people who would work with you. Where ever you work, you end up taking the job home. It begins to expand in your personal life as well.
Employment allows you to make money for yourself. Working allows you to be able to go shopping. You will also learn management of your money by opening a bank account. As you get older, you can also learn how to pay your bills. Examples are your cell phone and maybe a small house bill, as well. These skills prepare you for your independence.
In expanding your independence, your mind becomes stronger. You start having a different experience in your communication with others around you. This brings you closer to being independent in the world.
Whatever you do, people will start to look at you differently. Those who live in the community around you, will be supportive and proud of you. There are people around you that may not understand. Stick with the ones that do. You shall be okay with all of your success. Just know that you will always be learning. Even if you go through more than one job, you will take something to hold on to in each job. There are many benefits to working. Enjoy all you can with your new independence.
