Isn’t it amazing what your parent say to you that could totally break your heart? Make you feel like a helpless child lying on the floor. It happened today. My father came over while I was on the phone with a recruiter setting up a time for interviews. He looks at me and tells me “you never stop talking on the phone.” He went on to tell me what I am going to do with my life. And then, the social comparison kicked in, telling me about how useless I’d been. When I told him I am on the phone with a recruiter possibly leaving for Asia, he snorts and says, “you’ll never make it anywhere.” For a moment, my heart sank and sulked. I felt discouraged and my soul dwindle.
I am ready now. Thanks for the push
