Hey OP, sounds like a really rough patch. Sorry to hear it.
Tough patches in life can make or break people. So the best advice I could try and give to you. Is let it make you. Take it from the millions upon
millions of people who've gone through what you're currently going through that this is not the end, just a huge hiccup along the road.
It's going to feel tempting at times to give in to depression, and give up hope that things can change for the better but you have to fight that
with everything you got.. You literally have to battle any self destructive though patterns, behaviors or attitudes that will threaten to surface as
you go through this otherwise it can overwhelm even the strongest of individuals.
My hope is that you take inspiration from reading the stories of people who experienced horrific circumstances and came out of it happier in the
end. And that you focus on all the good things that you do have in life.
Just never forget this, If things can get so bad so quickly as they have for you recently. The opposite also than must hold true and that being it
can get better just as quick. But your choices play a huge role in that healing journey..
Maybe your family needs to truly understand how much their actions are affecting you, and be as honest as you can about your need for their
loving support even if it feels vulnerable.
We all need support from loved ones and there's no shame or weakness in that.
Your girlfriend that left you? Take it from the millions of other men who've gone through similar experiences that a better one can and often does
come along. The key is can you work on yourself and instead of blaming, even if it takes time do your best to let it go and forgive and move on and
you'll find the right one in due time. ( easier said than done I know).
and finally, for work.. Yea being unemployed sucks. But that can change too. What are you really good at? What do you enjoy? It's no fun being
broke and losing your place, but my encouragement for you would be to take this time to focus on crafting and cultivating a skill ( something you
enjoy), You should have a lot of spare time , so don't use it to sit there and reflect on everything that went wrong, use it to reflect on what you
can do to build an even better future than the one before.
Remember people like Steve Jobs, Tony Robbins, Oprah among countless others all went through poverty and the irony is their passion to
succeed probably grew in those down times and materialized down the road for them.
I wish all the best for you !
