If you keep trying, stop trying so hard. If you keep sending out resumes and not getting jobs, stop sending out resumes. If you can’t stand the fact that you’re unemployed, start thinking of yourself as self-employed. If you can’t make enough money, stop trying to make money and start trying to make yourself happy. If nothing is working, stop working on it.
Stick your hands in the dirt. Take the dogs for a walk. Go to yoga. See a movie. Eat a brownie. Have sex. Fall asleep.
Give up on whatever you won’t give up on, and the answer will present itself in that empty space
