I originally published this on LinkedIn, but I am posting it here as well because I think its important. I need to be vulnerable and honest to get past this. THE LETTER I admit that you crushed me. You made me doubt myself because I fell for your trap, and celebrated that I had the job. I felt relieved that the pressure to earn money had been lifted by the offer of a perfect part-time gig which would allow me … Continue reading “A Warning to Job Seekers and an Open Letter to a Scammer”

I just read a post where a friend announced that she was officially divorced as of a couple of days ago. Underneath this people commented sending love, or condolences, or thoughts.
