I’m graduating in a few weeks but I’m taking a leave until next year to make sure that I get some certificates that prove my worthiness as a good candidate in the job field.
I’m scared though because I know I have psychotic depression and possibly avoidant personality which makes me fearful of others or depend on others too much for support. I’m worried I’ll never meet the societal standards out there for a job, and since I don’t qualify for disability, I’m worried that I’ll end up in poverty after my parents pass away. My parents have been talking about my graduation and getting a job, but I feel incredibly lost and I’m exhausted and worn out. I wish I could make my parents happy, I really do. But I feel like I’ll just fail as a human being. I really don’t know what I will do in the future but I hope everything works out and I can freelance again in the job field.
Yeah there’s work in translating for students especially in your country. I’ve a mate who was doing it whilst on holiday in Malaysia. Was getting paid pretty well just to proof read for South Korean students. There certainly is a market so keep your mind open and see where’s there’s a demand.
I hope you’re able to find work. I myself have the same doubts, but thankfully there are opportunities for me to become qualified part time and then apply for part time positions in the field im looking to land in. I still get the anxieties though, so i can relate. Its a horrible feeling and really suffocating
