I felt really tired after 2 and 1/2 hours of telling "my story" and crying, but the conversation really helped me to change the way I was looking at my situation.
On Tuesday, I started to work at a tailor's shop. It was more of a learning than working, but I managed not to ruin this top. :)
Needed 2 full working days though to sew it together the right way with 2 machines I had never touched before. :)
By the end of the week, it was pretty clear to me, that earning a living as a seamstress isn't for me.
But I learned a load over there and leaving the house every day worked for me in many other ways as well:
1. on most days, I walked to and from work and discovered lovely streets and beautiful trees on the way
2. I visited my mom twice on my way home, one of the times, I met my sister at my mom's as well
3. I started to get used to a new routine
4. I made some new acquaintances
5. the owner of the tailor's shop might appreciate my other services in the future
6. I found a shop that would be glad to sell my creations including paintings
7. I was feeling much less depressed than lately
Late on Saturday night I had a crying attack, when I stopped keeping me together and just let out all the stress.
But it wasn't too severe, and I even managed, somehow, to explain my condition to my youngest son, who came to me asking what happened. :)
In addition, on Saturday night, I discovered the first decent job offering after months of searching.
I e-mailed my application right away not expecting to receive any answer sooner than on Monday, if any at all.
Today, the director/owner invited me to a job interview on Wednesday, although I had forgotten to attach my CV to the e-mail. :) YAY!
I really hope I get the job and it's really fulfilling, not only bringing in some money.
