I recently found an amazing freelance job that was totally perfect for me. And the pay was going to be super helpful. Everyone warned me that it seemed a bit sketchy but I blew them all off, told them not to be cynical, etc. Turns out the person who hired me had planned all along to just use me. I did so much work for this stranger, turning down other jobs and saying no to things I really wanted to do, just to have them disappear.
What was worst though was that all my friends were right. I was feeling like a complete failure while everyone around was getting jobs and reaching their goals. This may not seem like such a bad thing, but it's not a good feeling to put yourself out there, all the way around the world from your family just to get takem advantage of.
Several melt downs later, I'm getting back to it. I'm so grateful for my support system here, it's really important to surround yourself with inspiring, like minded people. And for my family back home. I pride myself on never needing their help but my parents came to my rescue and I would have totally given up if it weren't for them. 💕💕 Props to anyone who took the time to read this whole thing. 🙃🙃 Show me some love if you did, I could use a little extra love these days 💕 📸 @eyesofanomad
