I want to get a better job, I do, but I’m having trouble even working myself up to the point where I feel like I can. It seems like whatever I do, there’s always someone or something there to knock me back and show me that no matter how hard I try I’ll always be in the same miserable place. Looking around here, it seems like there’s so much pain involved in job searching. Why immerse myself in all that when I can just stick to the pain I know, the pain of working a job I hate, of not being heard or valued. That’s pain I’m familiar with. I feel unprepared to strive and I don’t even know where to start. My heart longs for something different but my head tells me there’s nothing there for me except a new kind of struggle. Is it even worth it to try?

Austin:

The problem with looking around a job forum dedicated to people searching for work is, a majority of what you see is people who are down on their luck. People are out there in the world EVERY DAY finding new opportunities and bettering their life. You just don't hear about it because it is human nature to share the negatives (because misery loves company).

When you have a bad experience with customer service, what is the first thing you do? Run to the internet and write a bad review. If you receive great service you just go on your happy way.

That's what's happening here on the forum. It is a honestly a small sampling of the population who all have the unfortunate distinction of being out of work or looking for a new job.

You have to think about what you want to be doing and make a plan to achieve it. The truth is, nothing is ever going to be handed to you. You have to work for it, and it's going to be a challenge.

Shake off the defeatist attitude and melancholy and fight for what you want.
