Time Doesn’t Always Mean Time

When you’re unemployed, people seem to think you have all the time in the world to do things. While this may be true for the lazy, for those of us who have always worked their whole adult life it cannot be further from the truth. For me, most of my days are taken up by scouring job sites while taking care of the normal everyday chores. When I’m not doing that I am dealing with crippling anxiety which actually prevents me from doing much else. Sure there are many things I would love to be doing such as finishing up projects in progress and starting new ones, or reading a book, or searching for stuff to take pictures of, or a whole bunch of other things that my brain just won’t allow me to put into action because of my anxiety from not finding gainful work that matches my qualifications and I no longer have connections or people to help me. To be honest there are some days I am freaking out so bad I am pretty much paralyzed. I have never been unemployed this long and I’ve always had someone giving me a hand. Not so much this time, I’m all by my self this time. So yeah, I’m not exactly sitting on my laurels or purposefully procrastinating on things. Time on your hands doesn’t exactly mean you have time on your hands.
