Self Doubt

Post placeholder image

I’m over here trying not to beat myself up too much. But I’m having such self doubt about almost everything in my life that it’s really hard not to be negative. The work situation is probably the biggest issue. I know I need to do something, but I’m not convinced yet that looking for job is the right thing. I’ve only been here 9 months. Perhaps I’m just a little afraid of the job I might actually land. In fact, that last time I found myself in a similar situation, I took the first job offered and here I am today. So I can’t help but feel like I’m one of those Michigan graduates who has wasted my degree and squandering my talents. Sure I make a decent living, but I’m not professionally satisfied. Part of me just doesn’t know what that means. I’ve never fully recovered from my decision not to go back to law school. I have no regrets, but I need to figure something out. So I’m over here reading: No More Blue Monday’s by Robin Sheerer. I really need to think more strategically before I make another move.

    It’s so hard when you’re not content where you are – and when you feel like you could or should be doing more. I struggle with that myself – a lot. I wish I could offer a solution…
