I just need a bit of advice

Ive been applying for jobs for a year or so now and not one reply. Ive had a lot of professional help with my cv and job applications but absolutely nothing. Im hardworking and dedicated and will do ANYTHING for a job. But i dont even get recognised.

All i want for now is a job in retail. My heart is set on a career in the performing arts industry. Ive been acting for 8 years (began when i was 10), taught myself guitar and write my own music. Ive joined a performing arts group in a local performance venue and i so hard in it. I know logically a job in that industry will take time to get, which is why i need a job in retail for now.

I am currently working in a well known charity shop as a volunteer to get experience. I can also get a qualification out of it for retail work and also training.

My mum and dad are making me feel like a useless waste because i have no job. No matter how hard i try and how im trying to make a good career in drama, they always make me feel like nothing i do is good enough. They literally think i csn turn up to a random shop ve like "can i have a job?" and they say" yes start tomorrow!". Ive said thats not how it works but they think its so easy to get a job. Im volunteering, appling for jobs, recently finished the princes trust course, and working harx on performance art, but nithibgs ever good enough to them. They expect me to have deadend jobs like them for the rest of my life and not have my dream my being an actress.

Its got to the point now im about to give everything up, my acting, throw my guitar away, quit writing, because i feel like im eorthless and i may as well settle for a deadend job till i die. Im getting so stressed about it all. I suffer from ocd and depression and am currently on the waiting list to get another psychologist (ive already had one who i stopped seeing a few months ago). I cant sleep or eat because of how my parents are treating me, and my ocd and depression is getting worse and worse. I dont get any support at all from my parents. When i first told my mum i write songs she literally laughed at me.

Im so sorry this is so long but i dont have anywhere or anybody to turn to and i need dome advice please can somebidy give me some advice it will be so appriciated

Number one thing: Stay hopeful. You're young, you still have plenty of time to accomplish your dream.

Happy ever after in the marketplace, Desmond lets the children lend a hand. Molly stays at home and does her pretty face, and in the evening she's the singer with the band!
