I always ask myself; should I disclose my disability when applying for a job or should I just not? It always scares me when I get to the section where it is what disabilities are included, but are not limited to. I have Cerebral palsy, Major depression, Obsessive-compulsive disorder and others. Clicking yes or checking yes can be tempting, but now my challenges have been kinda being more noticeable to myself.
As I pick up the pieces in my life, I have noticed one thing; you’ve got to put in the work to get the results I want. Trying to explain to my friends who pray for me that they do more for me by actively listening to my frustrations than praying. I do digress though, a lot of good folks out there. Looking for jobs sucks, but at the same time, I am learning more about what there is actually out there by researching.
Can’t pray I will get a job, got to actually apply for jobs. I know that I post a lot on my blog, but it brings me joy to do so. So yes I am doing well, been working on stuff and I feel productive for the first time in weeks. Even though what is going on hurts, it won’t kill me, I need to move on and just accept that sometimes life sucks. I cannot keep looking into the future to see negative events happening when I can prevent them from actively mitigating them. One day I might look back and view this as a positive, right now it is a wash.
