Here’s the truth, being unemployed is depressing.
Never will it be harder to efficiently use so much free time.
Never will it be harder to stay positive and not descend into apathy, depression, etc.
But you have to Get Over Yourself.
For me I can pinpoint an exact moment when it happened for me. I was reading about missionaries from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries that would literally pack their possessions as they traveled to Africa, China and elsewhere in the coffins they planned to bury themselves in. The chances of premature death was so strong that did without traditional luggage.
The missionaries left their homes with a certainty that they wouldn’t return.
I think I can handle living with my parents for a few months, selling a vehicle, and asking for help.
You and I aren’t our jobs at churches. We aren’t our titles. Worth does not come by comparing ourselves to those we went to school with.
We all know this, unemployment makes us come face to face with the truth.
