Honestly, I get excited at the opportunity to pursue new paths.

The first thing I did after losing my one and only real job in life, was cry like a baby! I got sick and diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
Therefore I lost my job as a teacher and since then I felt horrible about it for years. The oppurtunity to work after studying very hard, then losing it within a year, was devastating.
I managed to turn my life in a different and wonderful direction but still feel the kind of prejudice people will always have.
If you don't have a 'real job' you don't belong in modern day society. Losing your job, looking for a new one and hoping to find a better one, comes with losing part of your self-esteem for many of us.
Lucky for me, I feel confident and proud now with everything I achieved later in life.
On this I would disagree, for five years I have lived as a Freeman on the Land. No "real job", at least not one that would force me to accept federal reserve notes as compensation. It is not easy, but it can be done.
Do not allow your self worth to be determined by occupation, there is much more to life than work. Be proud of who you are, not what you are!
At first I felt like crying. I really could not aford to lose a job right now. Then I felt a sense of releaf. I had planed to look into a different type of job, but I did not want to leave the wonderful boss I had.
When I got home, I updated my resume, applyed for unemployment, then I started to search for a new job in the field I wanted.
So far no luck, but I am still trying
pee in the boss' coffee cup on the way out
(which, ironically enough, can be the cause of the unemployment in the first place)
