Hi stargazer,

I know that fear of rejection well. Monday I have a meeting with a headhunter and I told my T about it yesterday. She said "if you don't get the job or even an interview, I'm afraid you are going to think there is something wrong with you."

I am going to try hard to have the attitude of "there is nothing wrong with me, somethingis wrong with them for not hiring me." Maybe you can come up with a mantra that will help you feel less vulnerable?

I was bullied in a job in 2004 and I feel for you. I had a meltdown, went into a major depression and quit. As my T still reminds me I was in a bad situation that wasn't my fault.

Good luck job hunting.
