How do you know surely you are unemployed rest of your life that's a negative point Who knows maybe you'll get damn good job or less paid job. Life is full of suprices today you are unemployed doesn't mean you will unemployed in rest of your life. Just give a try jobs aren't come to your doorstep you have to search them eg;- newspapers, websites, others recommendations
I don't think it's just my negative thinking. How am I going to explain during an interview why I was unemployed for so long? I can't. Or what my strengths are? I don't have any that pertains to a job, not even total bullshit can hide the obvious, that I'm failure. Every job posting says they want an ambitious, goal-driven, etc. person and nothing can hide the obvious that I'm the total opposite.
The only "positive" is that I have a degree and nobody cares about that anymore. I think that makes me MORE of a loser because I wasted time getting it. In the back of my mind I still think I should be looking for a degree-related job but I know I can't. If I applied for a McJob I'd probably have to hide my degree to avoid being overqualified, denying my past like it never existed. Bottom line is I'm a loner since I was little, it doesn't compensate for education, and every time I see a Facebook icon amongst other things, which is everywhere, it's screaming to me "loners are losers!".
"Others' recommendations?" Lol. I have to meet up with my past boss to return something from a year
ago. Seriously, how do you handle the embarassment of being asked what you're doing now and revealing that you've been a jobless, withdrawn loser since? I don't know how to respond to him.
