I sold my house in Chicago, 2018 to relocate to Texas for a new job. my mom died at 66 the day I got there. I struggled with grief for a year, my life was a wreck. I was on 6 different antidepressants and seeing a therapist. life really sucked. I go to our sales kick off , great time, only to be told the following week , my job was eliminated. for 7 months I applied for jobs, nothing . I had my resume professionally written 20 times, paid $150 for a LinkedIn makeover. I took a junior level role for benefits, my boss micromanages me and I feel like Ive gone 10 years back in my career. But i stayed grateful and worked hard, respected my boss although he undermines me in front of others. so, your probably going so what. here’s the good news. today , I received a VP of sales role in IoT. I interviewed with this company back in August, and I was given an incredible offer. my point, you may be unemployed, not knowing how youre going to make it. your dealing with an illness or maybe someone close to you died. someone broke up with you. my point, where you are is temporary. it will get better, have faith, practice gratitude for the little things BUT DO NOT GIVE UP!!!! sorry for the spelling errors. I hope this brightens your day or gives you peace
10 years ago lost my dad suddenly, he was the breadwinner and I (who was a student) suddenly became a 24 yr old parent to my mom- who had just undergone a brain surgery and my younger sister.
Found a job, supported family emotionally, financially.
Lost the job. Went through shit.
Found another job
Underwent a surgery.
Got my sister educated abroad and got her married, just the way if my dad were around.
Parent to Mom as she wants to study English!
Life just passed by..... (Sorry your story just kindled the emotions)
Life is unfair, life is tough, life will teach, life will have to go on with or without.
I have a good job, workout, trying to live one day at a time. People keep asking me why I am not married. Well some of us have things to care. I don't know what's in store for myself... I guess whatever it is I have to face it!
So yeah everyone has battles they are fighting. Be kind and stay hopeful.
Not that it matters, I am a woman. That strong woman with scars so deep, yet she is smiling, beaming and uplifting others.
