    You're not worthless! This too shall pass

    Since you're not currently working, do you have the ability to do a little volunteer work for holiday charities or events? I know you may not feel like it, but if I were in your situation, I would. It can:
    -Get you some more and new references! And volunteering looks good on a resume. It'll be something to put in your unemployment gap.
    -Help perk you up. Helping others always makes me feel good and having a sense of community and usefulness might help how you're feeling.

    This time of year there are tons of soup kitchens that could use a helping hand. The food banks could use help sorting donations for hampers, winter clothing drives need help sorting clothes, etc etc etc. You will see that you have worth coming out your ears! You just need an outlet for it.

    If you know all of the traditional Chanukah (I'm sure I got that wrong) songs, traditions, etc. I'm sure there are many older Jewish folks who would appreciate you taking the time to sit with them and read passages, sing hymns, or whatever the holiday entails for you and them. This nostalgia may also get you more in the spirit.


    I feel like helping others is the most uplifting thing you can do while you're down. It's hard to start doing when you feel awful, but once you get rolling it may brighten your spirits a lot!

    @Chantel ....best post yet in this thread. I couldn't have put any better myself with regards to your point about volunteering / helping out. As a volunteer myself, I know a lot of places especially during this time of the year are always looking for helpers. It's unfortunate that we live in a society where most people are just out for what they can get, and if they don't get it they throw tantrums as if their world is going to end

    Positive! Nice! I like where this is going!

    I know a lot of places especially during this time of the year are always looking for helpers.
    Super positive!


    It's unfortunate that we live in a society where most people are just out for what they can get,
    Oops, slipping into negative land.

    and if they don't get it they throw tantrums as if their world is going to end
    And a solid landing in negative land.

    You know what helps me? Sometimes I go and sit somewhere quiet, indulge in a fancy coffee, and read. Sometimes we all need a little "me" time

    Gryphon, you are young and sometimes it takes a little longer to get "discovered" for your talents, but it will come one day. We know your worth. . .and you know your worth. It will come. Work hard. Have faith.
