No job. No boy. Six months and I am thirty. I am happy for my friends who are moving forward and yet I wonder, what the heck is so wrong with me that I cannot. I've asked people who know me, so it isn't something so obvious. I guess part of me feels like things ought to pick up again (I mean, I had a job once and a boy), but I can't help but feel like I am doomed.
How do you believe it will all be okay again? I am certainly not the sort who believes in God or "a plan" and I have found shrinks beyond useless. (So you know, I hear that advice but I don't need to see it reiterated.) Likewise, the whole "think about the people who are worse off" doesn't work. Seriously, I know it makes me an asshole, but I don't care. I care about how I feel, and the compairison doesn't work. That someone is worse off doesn't cheer me.
So: I need to believe that given time I will be okay, like most people I know and I am not specially marked for doom. How?
