I keep getting told to think of myself as a student not being unemployed buts its hard. Its hard when you get another email telling you unfortunately weren't successful in getting the job you were positive you would get. Its hard when you are trying to budget and save for things and your income is limited. Its hard when you begin to ask yourself if its really worth it when it comes to applying for jobs. Its hard when people tell you that maybe you should look into other options and that I should be realistic when it comes to jobs. I never thought that I would be unemployed for this long or that it would be this hard, but I have come to realise the following:

  • Life is hard AND challenging AND terrifying AND unknown
  • Sometimes you just need to stay focused on the bigger picture
  • I have acheived so much and overcome many obstacles to get where I am now
  • I may be unemployed but I am also a student and youth ambassador
  • God KNOWS what he is doing
 I guess thats the good thing about being a Christian is that even when times get hard you know that you have God to rely on and that he has a plan for you even if you have no idea what exactly that is.

Chin up Erin, I read all of your blog posts and have known you for a really long time.
I think you should look into other options, not because I don't think you're good enough but because I don't think that this is really what you want to do with your life.
Your caring job and reachout obviously bring you so much joy, and that is what you need to seek in life. Working in admin is going to be stressful for you because you are going to have to work on your own pretty much straight away and you're not going to know if you're doing things right.. obviously that is going to cause anxiety problems.
Working in a caring situation you will be part of a team, helping people and doing something that is completely worth your while, iven if you are set on working in an office who says that has to be right now? You have so many good qualities and you need to focus on them.
Also, speak to the people at reach out and ask them if you can write a post for their blog, you are a good writer and you already have the connection to the company.
You're a good person, share that with the world and help people who need it.
