What do you mean here?
....only that a desire to consider a change in your life is motivated by what you want to see yourself doing, such as finding a job (i.e. the very subject of this thread).
The "what you see yourself doing" aspect is directly related to the internal adjustments you're making within your self-image as you change it "from"
one view "to"
one you're contemplating adopting....
I'm sure you know that all change comes from within first....before it's seen (lived) on the outside.
The self-image you turn "to"
reflects the image you chose to adopt for you
to see....even if the world sees nothing at first, but what you've always presented to it.
Regardless what the world sees, you always
know who you are because you are the complete owner of your self-image....and the face you present to the world...
I was touched by the honesty I felt when you revealed a little of what was going on within you (behind that face)....as you wrestle with the important decisions you're making for how you want to see yourself now...and into the foreseeable future.
My last post was an expression of my hope to read a post from you in which you tell us how you've not only faced, wrestled with, but triumphed over, this challenging time....just as honestly as you've told us about your struggle..
And also hoping that what we, collectively, have said herein, will help you do so....
