I am taking my own advice and limiting my need to talk to this support group for awhile. Came upon another hiccup in life’s journey. Took a job recently, thought all would be well. My anxiety was almost non existent. But unfortunately I ran into someone who had issues of their own and now I am close to needing to look for employment again. I am a single woman and I have to work. I know the Lord God will see me through but I wish these hiccups would come less frequently. Those who know how to pray, please pray for me. I welcome all conversation. Nice to have a place to go and talk without being judged. Safe here.

You know I need your prayers Starrlight. Thank you!💕

I am sorry you had a bad experience. That is not good. God will provide. Is there a possibility of changing the situation with the other person? Can HR assist you?

Not possible at this point I do not think. I pray it could turn around none the less I have to be prepared for whatever happens. My heart is trying not to get heavy. I was a consultant, temp to hire they call it. I was hoping for the hire. But it is definitely an uncertainty at this point. It has been my experience once they make up their minds it is very difficult to get them to change. But you never know I guess. Praying and hoping for the best. Thank you for reaching out. It makes it a little easier to handle.

As I'm reading your post I appreciate your struggle and can relate. I also feel torn between "limiting my need to talk to this support group" and "I welcome all conversation". I'm not judging your person but challenging your communication. Seems like you processed as you typed and see the benefit of connecting. I get like that too. I haven't been employed in 20 years and I somewhat know the challenge after growing up with a single mom and four older brothers. I commend you for putting one foot in front of the other while dealing with the hiccups. I pray too and sometimes God does give me what I ask for. It's not always the way I want though so the challenges (hiccups) keep coming to make me face myself. That's when the anxiety enters for me....me expecting myself or others to be more than is realistic or necessary for the sake of someone else or me then resenting them if they don't respond like I expected. It's frustrating. That's my experience so I'm curious if you ever feel that. What exactly makes you feel you would need to find new employment? I hope the issues of the other person do not overshadow your value and what you bring to the workplace. Are there things you really enjoy about the job that bring life to you? I'm personally nervous about finding employment after my daughter graduates. After being home so long, while grateful for the provision to do so, it comes with a huge trade off of losing skills and a bit of my identity over years. Life is so unpredictable and imperfect. I wish it wasn't:)

You are right. As a Christian we believe in God’s leading and even through the tough times we pray for God’s peace which surpasses all understanding. We could be in the middle of a hurricane and we retain our peace. It is what I am striving for during this time of uncertainty. Thank you for responding, it is so appreciated. God’s blessings.
