For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
It's taken me a minute to gather the courage to open up and ask for help...so here goes...
I'm pretty sure everyone goes through this after college, but I just need some guidance and encouragement from someone(s) who has gone through what I'm going through right now.
Almost one year after college graduation and I still haven't found that good career for myself. I refused to settle for just any career or work in retail..again. I thought I found a great job, but that ended up being terrible, good experience, but absolutely bad. Now I'm in a predicament where I'm feeling like a bit of a failure because I'm feeling like I can't do anything right! Why I'm feeling like a failure-moved back home, single, no real social life, becoming a little depressed because of my situation and thinking about starting over with the career search and looking to intern...5 years ago, when planning ahead for my future, I thought I would be on my way to a successful career path or an entrepreneur. (My fam says I've always, always been too hard on myself, and I'm my own worst critic, but what can I do? I'm the youngest of the immediate family and I had/have a certain expectation for myself)
Social media these days is like a double-edged sword. I see these girls flaunting their bodies, half naked shaking their ass and getting money and living their lives and damnit having FUN! A friend and I were talking about this the other day and we're definitely not hating, but we may be a little, maybe a lot jealous of their lives. They're living young wild and free!
Lately I've been feeling like this degree did me no good, I have no career (I do work in real estate, but the salary varies, depending on the market), and even though I'm 24, I feel like I act like a 44 year-old, old maid. (No offense to the 44 y/o's, but you know what I mean) Even though I know tough times won't last and my degree WILL take me someone in the long run, but dang what about now?!
On the bright side, I have gotten closer to my family, and I've had the chance to work on my relationship with God. But please, if any of you can offer success stories, positivity and happiness, I would appreciate it so very much at this time...
