The job plays a fundamental, key role in one's happiness and mental health

  

   A thing that plays a very fundamental role in regard to 
   personal happiness and mental health is a person's job or 
   source of income.  The sense of security that comes from a job 
   or some dependable source of income is crucial to happiness.  
   No job or source of income means dependence, living off the 
   generosity of others, insecurity and unhappiness.  Man must 
   have shelter and something to eat or he will die.  These are 
   absolute essentials for each of us.  That means he must have a 
   job or some means or other of obtaining these essentials --- 
   and not just for himself but also for his family.  In the end 
   people will do whatever they have to do to live.  In some cases 
   this may mean stealing, begging or prostitution.  In order to 
   live, people may be forced to do things they don't want to do; 
   things that are morally repugnant to them; things that will 
   lower their self-esteem.  Need can force a person into 
   spiritual and moral degradation.
