View Full Version : Hello All

I am a newbie too, and I am so excited that I stumbled onto this forum.

I have recently lost my job due to my inability to sign an extremely restrictive non-compete contract so I have been researching different career paths I may find interesting while I am waiting for our wonderful umemployment security commission to decide whether I am eligible for benefits or not. :anxious: I have been in a sales job for the past 5 years and while I do it quite well -- I HAVE BEEN MISERABLE because I simply don't fit in with the others. :freak:

Hopefully, amongst people of like-mind, I will be able to build up my self-esteem again, and figure out what I want to do when I grow up :confused: I am also looking forward to making lots and lots of new friends!

This is only my 2nd attempt at being in a forum so I'll probably make a few daaahaa's, but I do learn pretty fast, so just steer me in the right direction and I'll get the hang of things eventually.:nerd:

I can't wait to get to know y'all and with any luck, I'll be able to get to know/understand myself a little better too!

Thanks for allowing me to join!

Nice to meet you. Well, I have been miserable because I couldn't get along with peers and wasn't liked for no apparent reasons. Hope your career gets back to the right track.

Welcome fellow emoticon enthusiast ;D

Glad you stumbled upon us.

Kay so I have three more I can use and it seems like a waste not too :rolleyes: the only question is which ones to choose :thinking: such innocent looking critters, such amazing annoyance inflicted on some fellow INTJs :mellow:

When I grow up I want to be left alone. :thumbsup:

Changing employment is always a drag. Hopefully you will come across something that is more suitable to you. In the meantime (and beyond) enjoy the forum.
