Day 142 | Dear Unemployed Job Seeker, You Are Not Unmotivated. You Are Discouraged.

Day 142 | Dear Unemployed Job Seeker, You Are Not Unmotivated. You Are Discouraged.

Are you tired of people encouraging you to find a job? What they do not realize is that motivation is not your challenge. You are not unmotivated. You are discouraged. Your spirit is low. You perception of your ability to find a good job is low. Maybe it is because you feel defeated after not hearing back from applications you have submitted, or after receiving rejection after rejection. Anyone walking in your shoes and down your path would feel the same. But what I love about you—yes you, is that you hear that little voice inside of you that says to give it one more try. And you do. You are stronger than others know; you are much stronger than you know. I know that you will try again. You are the best option you have and the only option you need. Everything you have within you will help you to reach your career goals. You must only remember that there is something in you. It is the something that says, maybe one more time, or let me try again in another way. You are not forgotten. You are not less than. You are not careless. Don’t let anyone put that negativity in your sprit. You are simply discouraged. And the best thing for you to do in this moment is to practice self-care. Be nice to yourself. Take on a different challenge for a while. Allow the small challenges and the small wins to encourage you along the way. You must fill up your own cup again. If you do not give up, not only will you find employment, but you will also learn just a little bit more about YOU along the way too. Maybe that is the blessing of your journey. So be it. It is done.
