How are the unemployed folks feeling going into the holidays? This week has been EXTRA hard to not feel like a failure, feel so defeated and utterly shamed of my situation. Even though I haven't been outright rejected from a dream job, I feel like I have been. No responses after my follow ups (and I know the Thxgiving week put a pin in things) I've been waking up in the middle of the night panicked about the future. Not sure I'll have money for gifts for family/friends. It's tough.
