Take A Chance

The world of job hunting is hard. Especially for someone with anxiety.


You always have the voice in your head that tells you, you are not good enough. Through job hunting, this is almost amplified.

Even ghosted application. Every bad interview. Every rejection.

It almost tells you that you are not good enough. That you are not worthy.

You can tell yourself that this isn't true. Someone wanted you to be employed before. You are good enough.

But then you think of the consequences of those jobs.

You may have been the only one who applied. They were looking for a lot of people. You just so happened to fit the bill.

You will never get anywhere. Can't fit in anywhere. Destined to waste your life in the same job. Never following your dreams. Always stagnant.

In these moments, you just want someone to take a chance on you.

To tell you that you are worthy. That you are enough. That you are good enough.

That those words that you spent hours mulling over on your cover letter mattered. That you are qualified. That you had the skills.

It's no longer about coming up short because you were finally the one on top.

Finally, someone believed in you.

They gave to a chance.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
