Before YCH, I was unemployed by choice. While I knowingly had left my job without another job so that I could take a break, the plan never was for me to be unemployed forever. But even with over a year to rest and recover, I still couldn’t navigate my way into job seeking beyond sitting on job posting sites. Every job looked either “too hard/not qualified” or “something I would hate doing.”
YCH appeared to be exactly what I was looking for – not a job in hand at the end, but a knowledge of self that would help me from never being in the situation I was currently in again.
When people ask me what I’m going to do, I no longer have an internal mini-crisis. I know what the next steps I need to take are. And instead of seeing dead ends and no possibilities, I see possibilities and opportunities.
