We’re all exhausted. The weather/fires/earthquakes are trying to kill us all. Our government is trying to kill us all either through nuclear war, crap healthcare or death by a thousand cuts to our humanity. Companies we work for are grinding us further into dust and demanding more for less. Hell even Ken Burns is being demanding with 18 hours of excellent but depressing Vietnam documentary.
Personally recruiters have me contemplating murder as they all tell me how great I am. But, they immediately say, “You’re not right for the position”, or apparently any of the positions they have on their books. I’m confused how they can tell me on the one hand that I have an excellent resume, great experience and skills but that somehow those skills are only appropriate for an apparently non-existent job. It makes me feel like they’re lying to me about everything and I start questioning everything. Maybe I’m not good enough, maybe I should just settle for I don’t even know what. Maybe I’m unhireable and should just start going through the neighborhood dumpsters for cans?. Just tell me what the fucking magic combination is that will get me a goddamn interview/job. Blergh. The whole thing gives me a headache and makes me want to go back to bed. Except that of course I’m not sleeping well due to stress.
What’s exhausting you?
