Gosh, TB, I’m sorry that things are so difficult for you right now.
Try to turn around your thinking and beliefs about yourself. You’ve come a long way and you’re a good person. There is a job out there for you and a place to live too. I hope that you can stay positive.June 15, 2017 at 9:27 pm #4965784
It’s not so much that I thought I couldn’t get a job, it’s why. I did think I could, didn’t see any reason I couldn’t. But when they run the background check, they got stopped at a job I had with a college professor… he’s on summer vacation now.
So any other job will likely result in the same.
And yeah, I can go live in the homeless shelter in a nearby city. They had a news item where this one guy there managed to find a job after only 8 months. So… how do people survive at homeless shelters?
So I guess I go off and be the best happiest homeless person ever. Ain’t got much left to lose nohow, and it’s been about that way since y’all met me.
Thank you for saying I could say things in here though… that didn’t work out so well when I talked to people at the meeting. I should accept what I got, is the gist of that. Seems easy for people to say when they gotta go back to work and their family is waiting at their home.
Sometimes I wish I’d never left home. I gotta admit, my daddy was right… it wasn’t worth it. I got away from the hopelessness of never going to make it, to exchange it for the hopelessness of never going to make it–only without them around for laughter and support.
TB, trying to hang in there.June 15, 2017 at 9:30 pm #4965778
I’m a little bit astonished you can’t see how far you’ve come TB.
You’ve already accomplished more than a lot of people.
You really need to cut yourself some slack.
You will find that job TB – and then everything else will fall into place 🙂
