What you said in here is exactly when I started to realize something wasn't quite right...back when I was fresh out of high school, I found the job
thing to be very odd.
It was a catch 22. I couldn't get a job because I didn't have any experience, and if a job is the only way to get experience, how the hell was I
expected to get the experience necessary to get a job if I couldn't get a job without that experience?!? ARGH!
I knew from then on, that something was up, and luck indeed plays a more important role than people care to admit.
Your post resonated with me, however, because I, too, have been there myself. The feeling of hopelessness, the futility, the bleakness. One thing
that helped (me, at least) through those tough spots is in finding something that you can create. For some reason, I believe that creating things
brings a fulfilling meaning to our lives.
And it matters not what is created, so long as you are the creator. Art, music, philosophy, hell, even poetry. Since you're in IT, it could be a
new network architecture that you created, or a new program that you created that makes life easier for others.
Try and find something - anything - that you can create that brings joy and meaning to your life. If it brings joy to others or helps others, that's
See if this helps...as it has helped me.
