My So-Called Dream Job

My So-Called Dream Job
I need family – a family that doesn’t necessarily share the same blood as me, but a family that loves and supports me. Supportive and loving people create more energy and are more progressive in their community. I thought that I could find the kind of love and support that I need in a job, but after 10 years of failure, I give up on that dream. I look up to my Uncle Henry everyday for guidance hoping that one day he will show up at my door.

 (“Crying ‘UNCLE [Henry]!'”)*

Failure And Success
The more I think about it, my 10 years of failures have been a blessing. Every time I failed, or lost my job, I learned something new. I did my best at work and although I was never promoted or never given the opportunity to climb the ladder, I built character. By making self-improvements and teaching people how to improve their own lives, I gained self-respect.

Failure after failure, I kept myself and other people going with hope that I will reach a point where I feel confident enough to not only do my job, but start a family. When you reach that point, you begin searching for a home and a companion to settle down with. I think I am there.

The thoughts of dating and settling down are overwhelming. Developing trust can be a real hairy situation, but you have to find the courage to get to know people. Over time, I know that I will find a place where I belong and live life knowing that everything will be fine.

*”‘Say ‘uncle’!’ is a North American expression demanding that the opponent in a contest submits. The response ‘Uncle!’ is equivalent to “I give up” and indicates submission. There are two theories as to the origin of the term; one relates to the Roman Empire when a bullied child would be forced to say “Patrue, mi Patruissimo,” or, “Uncle, my best Uncle,” in order to surrender.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Say_Uncle)

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am
    looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
