Thank you It's just so hard, you know? And I feel like I need to develop a hard shell in anticipation of the aggression I feel like I'm going to encounter when I go through the job process. I just haven't had any luck with employers. They were really hard on me and hated my shyness. They didn't understand and they saw it as a flaw in my work performance. However, there were other people I worked with who believed in me and liked the fact that I'm nice and a hard worker. I should be focusing on that now. I just wish it wasn't so hard.
