Thank you for sharing this! Helps me to deal with my self-accusations better :)
I’m so glad you found this helpful. It helps me too. :)
I actually did like my first job, but it wasn’t a real job. It was a sixteen-year-olds spending money job. I worked at Wendy’s with a bunch of my high school friends. :-) Thanks for sharing.
Haha amazing. My first “job” was an unpaid internship. I loved it, but did not love the lack of $$.
