I want to feel useful again

Posted , 4 users are following.

I worked in a charity shop for 5 years and loved it. Got on well with my colleagues and felt for the first time in my life I belonged.

I never felt loved in my childhood and cut my family out of my life when mum died. Wanted to think that life was separate.

A new manager took over and he was nasty. I quickly applied for another job and got it. Then I heard that my colleagues had also left.

I like the other job but I feel an undercurrent with the supervisor. She asked me to work on bank holiday saying it would be a great help. I was happy. Then at the end of the day tells me she won't need me until saturday. I felt stung.

Spent last two days in bed crying and had nightmares. I'm  feeling more alert now. I know it is up to me to apply for another job to keep busy but am on a downer right now.
