Being Unemployed Is A Full Time Job.

When you think about it, there are very few times in life when a person truly stops and takes time out to really reflect on themselves and who they are as a person. It is usually after a difficult time or an unpleasant event when feelings of dissatisfaction within oneself are triggered, and we delve into the depths of our psyche for answers.

I believe that it is only during these times of real introspection and deep contemplation that self actualisation can take place, and with it the ability to really change and develop yourself. Being unemployed for a substantial length of time is one such situation, and I have found myself analysing life and my place in it over and over again. However I realise now what a unique and positive position I am in, and recognise the significance of what is happening.

I have the opportunity now to fully concentrate on developing myself; to use this time to make myself a better person. I can identify my weaknesses and I’m at liberty to take the necessary steps to address them. Instead of asking ‘what’ problems I may have, I’m asking ‘why’, and trying to resolve them. It’s very liberating.

I’m teaching myself new things too, on a professional level. I’ve mastered different publishing software, I’m getting to grips with content management systems, and I’m studying for a diploma in Journalism and Newswriting. Oh and I’ve set a new record of unloading and loading the dishwasher in 30 seconds flat.
It is disheartening at times, but if you turn being unemployed into a full time job and spend your days being productive and developing yourself both personally and professionally – not only are you increasing your chances of securing that perfect job, but you will be much more content and self assured as an individual. Doubt you’ll be able to beat my dishwasher record though.
