I'm bummed out!
Updated: Nov 8, 2021
I feel for you. Job searching can be very hard, challenging your self confidence and feelings of self worth. Feeling bummed out means your expectations are askew and need adjustment. Expect searching will take longer than you like, require that you learn and employ lots of search techniques, and that you have to steel your emotions for the longer haul. Since you're more sensitive these days, be proactive - develop a buddy system, talking with a fellow job searcher every weekday, finding ways to be successful together. Consider taking a brief break from searching to right-side yourself. Exercise daily, smell the roses, breathe deeply to center yourself. You WILL get through this, but YOU must make it happen.
