I’m not sure how to navigate the world these days. Are you?
I’m in a job search and employers see me as over-qualified or under-qualified. I apply for jobs and am under-qualified for a full-time job in my chosen field. I try and try and try so hard to prove myself capable at my part-time job, but it’s been 3 years and I’m just not getting anywhere. I feel as if I am not good enough—and then over-qualified for most of the jobs I feel that I could do and would enjoy doing. I would be happy to do data entry all day… but thus far, I can’t seem to convince anyone.
I have a paralyzed vocal cord but I can speak well enough to not be considered eligible for disability…. but not well enough to do presentations or teach or talk on the telephone (for work). I am not quite abled or disabled.
everything seem caught in this middle place and I hope and pray that I can get unstuck.
But the good news is that I can now sing 2 octaves. I just have 3 more to go!
