From Kevin

Hi, I’m Kevin. I’m 35, living in Birmingham, and I’ve been struggling with unemployment. I lost my job a year ago, and I’ve been searching for work ever since. The job market is tough, and the constant rejection is taking a toll on my mental health.

I used to work in marketing, but the industry has changed so much, and it’s been hard to keep up. I’ve applied for hundreds of jobs, gone on countless interviews, but nothing has panned out. The rejection is demoralizing, and it’s hard to stay motivated. I feel like a failure, like I’ll never find work again.

The financial strain is overwhelming. I’ve had to dip into my savings, and I’m worried about how I’ll pay the bills. I’ve cut back on everything, but it’s still not enough. The stress and anxiety are constant, and it’s affecting my health. I’m not sleeping, not eating properly, and I feel exhausted all the time.

My family and friends try to be supportive, but they don’t really understand what I’m going through. They say things like, “You’ll find something soon,” or “Just keep trying,” but it’s hard to stay positive when nothing seems to be working. The isolation is the worst. I feel so alone, like no one really understands.

I’ve started seeing a therapist, which helps, but it’s a slow process. Some days are better than others, but the bad days are really bad. I feel like I’m drowning, like I’ll never get back on my feet. The depression is crippling, and it’s hard to find joy in anything.

If anyone out there is struggling with unemployment, just know you’re not alone.
