The real deal is that I had to fight for my right to have what other people took for granted: a full-time job and a home of my own.
Here’s what I can tell you when you face resistance to your employment goals or any other goals:
It doesn’t matter what other people think.
If I didn’t set the bar higher for myself early on no one else would’ve set a bar at all for me to reach.
That’s why I say: decide for yourself what to think about your prospects.
Seek to live up to your own expectations no one else’s.
America is a society where people are conditioned to compete against each other.
Thus you can see that not a lot of people are going to have a vested interest in seeing you get the same things that they want.
Remember my review in here of the book Dark Horse:
Success will come via fulfillment not the other way around.
I think it’s time in this blog to talk about money options when it comes to choosing a job you’d like to work at. More on this in the future.
To give you hope I will relay here what my literary agent wrote in a book proposal:
“The vast majority of people with a mental health issue can work at a job.”
No kidding. I didn’t write that. An outsider did. Yet it’s true.
