Today has been ok, just worried about money problems and trying so hard to get a job. I need a job to help my husband out financially and make myself feel better about myself. I’d love to take 7 or 8 Xanax and not feel anything and just sleep 14 to 17 hours like I used to. On a good note, my house is freaking spotless. Not having a job is making me feel so worthless and like a bum, I just want to do my part. FYI, I have 72 applications in currently praying the phone calls will start coming soon.
You’ll get a job. My understanding is places (some) are having a hiring boom right now… not sure all the industries but its not only hospitality, if that’s not your thing. What kind of job are you looking for?
You’re right. You’re not a bum or a looser.
Are you going to bed sober?
Then you’re a fucking winner.
It’s really hard at first. Try and give yourself a break. My house was spotless too the first few months. And I was angry as hell.
This shit is hard. But it will get easier.
Gratitude was and still is my biggest tool. I bet you got a lot to be grateful for when you’re clean and sober.
Try doing a gratitude list ever day.
Keep checking in your worth it.
I have applications in warehouses, restaurants, retail, everywhere.
I am 8 days sober, and you’re right I need to do the gratitude thing. I am trying to stay positive and find the positive in everything negative
Dude. You’re job hunting like a maniac and your house is spotless and you’re sober and working your recovery. You deserve to give yourself a break! Keep on doing what you’re doing and you’ll be alright. Maybe say the serenity prayer a few times. Would calm me down in your situation. You’re good girl.
You’re looking for work, how does that make you a bum? Countries are barely reopening a lot of people looking for work, and a lot of companies are hiring. Keep your head up, you’ll land something soon! You would be avoiding a job if you were a “loser”. Dont need drugs, just be patient and keep sending resume
Winners do what they have to do loser do what they want to do
I know I’m not a bum, it just feels that way because my hubby is working so hard to keep our bills paid. I’ve only been unemployed for 2 weeks, when I went to jail I got out and didn’t have my job. I am trying so hard for another job, send good vibes my way that I’ll start receiving calls from places that would love to hire me. Good night, y’all
We are all our biggest critics. As long as we remember sobriety first, everything else just works. Hugs! Keep kicking ass.
You are definitely a winner from where I’m standing! The right job will come along for you, just give the universe a little more time to put things in place. It sounds like you have a plan and that you are ready to charge on. Take it steady with yourself. You are only human and recovery can be brutal at times. I remember when I was around two months sober and I was wanting to make all of these big changes and was getting frustrated that it wasn’t all coming together when and how I wanted to. I figured that I was sober now and because I’m sober things should be a certain way, not at all how they were. Someone on here said to me….relax. You are exactly where you are supposed to be right now. It helped me a lot I hope it helps you? The right thing is coming lady! Things are moving forward (in the best way possible) for you and your family. I wish you all the best
