Since yesterday I've had to get used to the idea of no longer being supported by a steady pay check every month. Yesterday evenin I was still wondering how come I don't feel anxious nor sad. I realized I'm so over this job since long time, that I can only rejoice in what's happened. No, I can't tell you how well I'll be doing. I know it'll be well, anyhow.
What I can tell you is please just be positive and supporting. I KNOW it's not going to be a walk in a park. But I'm not afraid of hard work. What dreads me is the thoughtless minds of people who wish to care, but succeed in nothing but discomforting me by telling how sad sad, anxious etc. I MUST be, and that it will be tough on me now.
Hey, I KNOW the times are tough and that I'll spend hours and hours looking for and chasing clients, and working my ass off literally. But I'll be working for ME, for my benefits. For my own happiness. Nobody needs to remind me of any of the hard facts. I KNOW! All I want from anyone at this point is constructive advice that actually will get me somewhere and peptalk. If I need a shoulder to try on I'll find one. Unless I call for anything else, support me. If you can't do that, please just leave me be. This is the most all-consuming, all-altering thing ever happened to me, and the biggest change of my life. I want to be happy about it, and move on towards all the wonderful things awaiting me after January 15th.
