Well, having a job helps a lot with feelings of self worth and makes me far less frustrated with myself.
I do gotta work on organizing myself better still, in terms of housework and stuff. As of right now, I'm not keeping up with housework, and I desperately need to fold my laundry that's been sitting on my bed for a week. It's harder to do it when I don't feel like I need to in order to maintain my self worth, since my job gives me that now.

Still, I'm making money, I'm helping the family out with my money, I feel quite good.

i'll post a bit more (I was on mah phone, sorry)...

I'm really, really happy for you. I'm at least 10 years older than you and just now doing the whole "growing up" thing in earnest, so...awesome. I hope you enjoy your job and any jobs you may have in the future, and...

God bless you. :)

one thing that's helped me...

accept where I'm at, right now. as a Christian, this lines up with Scripture, to a point...I'm thinking of 1 Thessalonians 5:18 , here....

so, for me...I'm learning to accept even some of the rough(er) stuff, along with the obviously good, awesome stuff. its an ongoing process, of course...as one can tell by my 1,000s of posts (LOL), but...

yeah. the other 'deal' is that over-analysis and self-criticism drives one (me, at least) further into...well...self, and that's not compatible with The Good News, the overall Christian doctrine of dying to self, bit by bit, day by day...

some days more so than others, obviously. :)
