Finally, I have been able to do everything I set out to do. It was not easy to fight the inertia and depressive mood that brings me down. However, setting the goal and telling myself to just do it and giving it a shot made so much difference. And exercising through dancing kind of lifted my spirits before I go on to do other job-related tasks. Though going out made me sad and afraid that I would bump into anyone whom I might know, I was glad that I did not let unemployment stop me from enjoying simple joys in life. I have started noticing that the low mood really strikes hard at night and does affect my sleep. But, I aim to reflect on the positive things that happen throughout the day and to remind myself of my ultimate goal – to serve and that should not be affected by my unemployment. Will try to keep to a fixed schedule with regular sleeping hours to keep my spirits up.
A few more things to smile at today and I believe there will be more to come..
And, thank you for all the cheers! Really mean a lot to me at this very low point in my life. Am touched by the encouragement
