How I’m Coping With Unemployment. 

Unemployment. I hate it. I truely do hate it with a passion. I’ve always worked since I turned 18 and never really been out of a job……until now that is. And it ain’t fun. It’s actually horrible, it’s stressful, and very upsetting. 

(FYI I was let off with loads of other people because there was NO work coming in for us. Which is understandable.)

To begin with I treated the first few days as a sort of holiday really. I applied to a few jobs here and there but my attitude was upbeat. I was confident and wasn’t overly worried. Even had an interview but didn’t get it. However I remained calm. That is until this week where I came to the realisation that I didn’t have any holiday pay or last minute payments for my old job coming in. 

Now fear and worry have set in with the simple thought of: how the hell am I gonna pay my part of the rent!!!?? 

So I did the only thing I could do. I swallowed my pride and walked into a job centre. They have helped me apply for Jobseekers, even gave me a list of website’s to look at for jobs and I have a meeting this week with them. I’m nervous but feel more in control. I’m making a positive step forward. 

Heck I even took a leap of faith and applied to some bigger jobs!! I even smashed a recent phone interview but I need to wait 3 weeks for the face to face interview (which doesn’t help me now!!) But I’m still gonna see what happens and I’m still gonna go for it if I can. 

Even though I have all this positive stuff round the corner. I’m still so worried. How can I pay the rent?? Is Ross gonna cope?? How does he feel about this?? What about next months rent?? What about food and my boys?? And now my stepdad has taken a bad turn! 

So many thought’s are running through my head but I know I will get there. I always do. It’s just so scary. So difficult and now is when those damn voices have come back to make things worse. My anxiety has come back with a vengence. 

But I will get there. I’m just too damn stubborn to accept this. 

Until next time my lovelies.

  2. In the meantime you can use sites like peopleperhour for freelance work in all manner of areas! It’s something I have been looking into while I look for a new role.

  3. Hey love,

    I am right there with you on this unemployment journey! I know you know that you aren’t alone but thought I should further affirm. I have felt some very similar feelings to you, which I shared on my blog. It is hard but this delay is certainly not our destination. Keep on pushing! God bless you hun!

    1. Good thing that we are both too stubborn to give up. Recently moved to an area that has a high demand of jobs so hope to be working soon. Good luck to you and your job search.
