To All The People That Can’t Keep A Job Or A Relationship

The stigma is real, but there is always a bright side to everything.

We all know people that meet their partners at High School and have been with them since then (and apparently happy). We also all know people that got a job when they were interns, and now years later they are a manager for the same company (and apparently happy). We all know these people, but most of us are not them. Most of us can’t keep a job or a relationship.

I was never able to keep a job or a relationship. NEVER. So I am really curious about these people that can (if you are one of them, please write in the comments how you can do it).

At the moment, I am in a new relationship, and we are over one year together (started officially dating on the 20th of July 2020); and I am also in a new job for almost one year (I will complete one year on the 9th of November 2021). And I have no idea of what could happen. I am hoping to start a family with my boyfriend and to be at my job for at least five years. But we never know what could happen.

There are many reasons someone can’t keep a job or a relationship, and I will list some of them that are related to my experiences:

You Can’t Keep A Job Or A Relationship: because you make the wrong choices.

I made so many wrong choices in my life, and I do try to believe that they all led me to where I am today because, in a way, they did.

I got married because I didn’t know what to do with my life, and it seemed the easiest solution, and I lost my dream job because I didn’t know how to deal with problems I had at the job, and instead of asking for help, being brave and courageous, I chickened out and started drinking alcohol. With the marriage, from day one, I knew it was the wrong decision, and with the job, from day one, I knew I needed a thicker skin to be there.
