It has been just a few minutes over a week since I came home to tell my girlfriend about being unemployed. Since then, not much as truly changed, but how I am handling it certainly has. I’ve applied for a few positions that have cropped up, and I keep looking. Now, I’ve got a more positive outlook than I did last week.
I’ve gotten a fresh haircut, and a fridge full of food. I am still waiting for unemployment, but I’m feeling more confident about that too. We’ll be okay.
Luckily, I am blessed enough to be with someone who is understanding and supportive about all this. We were at Shades State Park this weekend, and joking around she asked why I loved her. I joked back, and told her I was not going to get into it.
Truly, that is one of the many reasons.
