I have found that, during my darker times, keeping faith in the fact that people around me care how I feel has helped the most in dealing with depression. And working through self-doubt is so much easier when you have someone or a few people you respect who believe in you.

I think SoK may not have the best network of supportive people around him, and that it's important for us, as his friends, to be that network when we can.

I could try to ignite a debate about how some people get screwed and others don't in the job market, but I'll leave it at the following. There is a fine line between what someone does for themself and what they don't have control over in being a competitive player in the job market today.

Very informative post Rev. I don't know if I do myself any good being open about this stuff. Some people have either accepted it or they don't talk about it. What I would do to go back in time knowing what I do now. A lot of shit changed in our economy from '99 to around 2005.

There is too much on my mind to continue.
