My goal is to share the insight I’ve gained with blog readers and followers.
What’s true: success often hinges on collaboration and cooperation.
Before you can be successful at a job or any other endeavor it pays to have a support network in place.
In society for everyone regardless of our challenge type getting support isn’t easy.
For a lot of us accepting support turns out to be hard.
My thinking might be off base. Yet I think too many people are so wrapped up in living for their self-gain that they don’t care about taking time out to help others who could use a hand.
The myth of the rugged individual has persisted in America for too long.
You’re told your weak if you don’t buck up and handle your business on your own.
Only when you could use an assist hardly anyone is willing to come forth to aid you.
This dynamic is a far worse condition than any type of stigma in countering a person’s success in recovery.
My stance is this: I’ve been here on this Earth over 50 years so far.
My first corporate office job career was an attempt to make the big bucks.
After I crashed and burned working at these jobs that were an ill-fit, I went back to school to have the right-fit career.
What I’ve learned in my over 25 years of employment I gladly share.
The things I know to be true—like the fact that recovery is possible for a significant number of people—I’m willing to share in the blog too.
It’s a myth that “the vast majority” of people can’t recover.
Having support, utilizing self-care, working at some kind of job (even if it’s a dedicated hobby or volunteer work), and doing what you love are tools in the tool kit to use to have a successful recovery.
Recovery starts with getting and accepting support.
It’s time to give the hateful outdated rhetoric the boot.
For too long opposing sides have said and done things to inflame each other.
I’ll end here with this: recovery is easier to achieve with support from others like family, your treatment providers, friends, and lovers.
Having a job you love is easier to obtain using the support and resources that are available.
In coming blog entries I’ll talk about support that exists for employees at a company.
