It can get disheartening when all your friends are getting the job of their dreams while you’re here only getting ready to graduate.
Everybody else is moving on, and you feel left behind.
When you’re in your early 20’s looking desperately to find the perfect job, you’ve got the whole rest of your career ahead (40+ years) to find it.
There’s no need to beat yourself down.
Getting talked over is one of the most frustrating and discouraging things a quiet person could experience.
Having to repeat ourselves is one of the last things we want to do in a conversation.
But, building relationships is a 2 way street.
It’s in your power (as much as theirs) to form meaningful conversation and dialogue, because both of you have something important to say (one not being more important than the other).
It’s so easy to get lost in somebody else’s visions of success and happiness.
As the days pass, what are we really looking for when we go to school? When we apply to graduate studies? When we apply to several hundred jobs on the market?
Using somebody else’s north star is not the same as finding your own.
