“MAKING DO WITH THE WORLD AS IT IS AND ADAPTING YOURSELF TO GET TO WORK” – From Getta A. Long PhD.
Let’s face the truth. The world is what it is and all of the could of, should of and might of will not change it nor help your current needs. In fact, it is up to you to go the extra mile, make the extra effort and to then work harder than the person who doesn’t have barriers.
That’s the reality of your situation and the soon you accept your mission, the sooner you will achieve employment.
It is very easy to give up, to blame society and use the difficulty of the situation as your excuse for doing nothing…”No one will hire me!”
“No one will hire me!” is a very easy way to shut down any conversation with case managers, friends or family because they will be hard pressed to call you on this. It becomes a very seductive way to avoid painful conversations that focus on what you believe is your failure(s).
It becomes so seductive that you start to believe it too.
The problem is that once you start to buy in on the concept, it becomes truth but, is it reality? The answer is to you, for friends, family and support team it becomes a false reality.
The question to ask is complicated because you must be truthful with yourself about how much of this is true and how much of this was your fabrication to protect your feeling and/or to get people off your back.
The real answer is that it is not.
The real answer lies in the fact that you let your past experience(s) or one or two recent experience(s) prevent you from moving on with your job search and thus your life.
