I was in your boat over a year ago. I had gone a long time without a job and I had NO confidence at all.

I decided that if I did find work, that I would let people get me down. It worked for about 8 months and then I became severely depressed. But since I did it for 8 months, I know that it's possible. And it's possible for you too!

Failure at ANYTHING is always cause for worry with me.

Obviously when one is depressed it's like waving a red flag and others move in to criticise your abilities and take advantage of you being vulnerable.
