After many years of unemployment, job rejections and an overall feeling of worthlessness, having applied for a position (with a recommendation from my ex co-worker), having been offered it, having successfully negotiated my salary—it has produced a POWERFUL EFFECT of JOY and SATISFACTION in my life! I haven’t felt this good in a long time... It’s given me energy, reduced my stress, headaches and muscle tension... It’s produced HOPE! Further proof that a POSITIVE EXPERIENCE is a much more powerful, effective and robust treatment for depression, compared to an anti-depressant pill. I will savor this moment of being given a job—a job that actually matters to me! I will relish in it!! I will make it last!! The “keep smiling” and “keep being positive” posters have meaning again… (I just wanted this thought recorded in my posts)
