|TARDIS: Expeditionary Craft from the Golden Age of Gallifrey. This is not a certain battered old Police Call Box!|
Here is a bit of general advice to those aware of my struggles and itching to be helpful: solutions are required, not platitudes. Things will not "work out" without a plan, one can not "get out there" if that venue is not clearly defined, and to "turn life around" is an outcome, not a method.
And for those who think they have solutions, here are some harsh truths to keep in mind:
— Learning new skills does not make necessarily make one more hirable, but often more "expensive" in employers' eyes.
— Entrepreneurism may well blacklist one as "too independent" to hire, regardless of success or skill.
— Most pro jobs are filled before the position is even listed, published solely to satisfy legal obligation.
—Freelancers are usually mistaken for "cheap labor" and treated accordingly.
— And lastly, the option to move to new places does not realistically exist if there is no definite job waiting there.
Finally, when I say there is work I cannot do, it is not due to aversion, but rather experience and proven limitations.
So bearing all this in mind, I encourage and welcome any realistic help that may be offered.
