I'm feeling so alone right now

TheNightmareTheNightmare Posts: 1,559 Extreme Poster
I've been struggling daily, trying various things that didn't work out. I thought a forklift training course would start a new career, but after a week's training, I wasn't getting the hang of it, and the owner informed my uncle, which felt like a failure, putting me back at square one. Since then, I've been job hunting and took a confidence course to boost self-esteem, but I'm still negative, stressed, sleepless, and sometimes crying, feeling like a failure. I haven't found my path since finishing college, unlike everyone else, and it feels never-ending.

    @FordRanger Sorry to hear you're struggling. It might be worth speaking to your GP about your stress and issues sleeping to see if they could help or refer on. You're definitely not alone, everyone has their own journey, so try not to be too hard on yourself. It might feel never-ending now but I have all the faith that it will work out in the end and you will find something that works for you.

    Keep us updated, we're all rooting for you! Hope things get better for you soon, it's certainly not easy job searching

    @FordRanger I can hear you are going through a difficult time.

    I just wanted to remind you that you are not a failure. Your value is not affected by the job you have or career path you have chosen or cannot find. You are so much more than your career.

    Your determination to keep pushing through these struggles is admirable, as is your ability to open up and discuss how you feel- this takes strength. These characteristics are wonderful and make you truly special. Don't forget it. <3
