I sometimes lose perspective on my life when it comes to being unemployed, and I need to be reminded of a few things to regain it.
There is always someone worse off than you.
A job cannot completely define you, and never should, even if it is something that you love.
There are many people who are there to support you. Some in ways you might not even realize.
Respect must be earned, but sometimes it needs to be taken.
Never be afraid to apply for a job. The worst that could happen is that you stay unemployed. Big Whoop.
Some people might be jealous of you and your situation. Not that being unemployed is anything to envy, but there are some advantages over working stiffs.
You get to spend time with the dog. Isn't he cute?
