My Mood: How many jobs have you worked?

Default Re: How many jobs have you worked?

I have had loads of jobs and have been fired from every single one of them except two lawn-mowing jobs I had as a teenager. Being avoidant means I just can't be around people; I go crazy from the stress and become insufferable, so they get rid of me. I don't blame them. I'm retired and pretty financially secure now, so those days are gone and it doesn't matter anymore.


I do have a workshop and tools and could make things for sale, but the quandary is it's hard to keep myself going motivation-wise due to loneliness, I could use some company, but can't take having people around for very long. So a lot of my life has been wasted sort of because things just get done better when you work with partners or a team. Eventually I've always eventually gone crazy having someone around. I'm actually calmer now that I've better accepted being a loner.

Only 5. It's hard getting a job. Interviewing is torture. And it's like winning the lottery to get accepted. Unless it's a really horrible job I guess. That's how I got a cafe job - no one else wanted it because it was so much work.

New job every two years on average. Most of my problems are with learning issues (trouble absorbing large amounts of information) and of course, people. I try to 'be social' but eventually I fall back on my instincts of avoiding people. Which comes off as weird or even hostile.
