Just the fact that you restart working can completely change the tide in your favor.

Also, it's very helpful to do online courses (even if you have to pay for them, the investment will eventually pay off).
Every day can only afford to eat plain bread for breakfast, where got money to go for online courses?

also coursera or simple google free online course {your interested subject}
the key isnt to get a proper certificate, but sufficient knowledge to build ur foundations, to secure interviews and give your potential managers hope that you can easily further yourself on the job

He is just trolling. As usual, a whiner who expect others to spoonfeed.

Default Men returning back to the workforce

I am a male in my 40s, single and have been unemployed for almost a year. Left my previous job as an executive because of low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. The job market this year has obviously been horrible and my issues above became worse with application after application rejected.

Recently I finally managed to get a job and I am starting next week. It needs a lot of people interaction which is also something which made me leave my previous job. I tend to think too much about what colleagues, bosses and others think of me and my work performance. But I don't think I have any options here, its take this job or remain unemployed.

Another challenge I face is that I am basically by myself. I am not close with my family and don't have a social circle. Call me a loser, a weirdo, a hikikomori. But all these years I have put up a false front at work and in public. Its a miracle I am still alive today.

I fear going back to work because the workload will be high, I will need to put up a show that I am 'normal' to my future colleagues and worse of all I will need to interact with them and answer questions about my personal life, unemployment and all that.

If there were a hole in front of me now, I would jump in and never be seen by the world again.

When women return to the workforce after child-rearing, being a home-maker, they may face the same issues. But everyone is more understanding and there is official and unofficial support. I may be a unique example, but my issues are also real, I have nobody to turn to and as a man, society expects me to manage them by myself.

Not asking for sympathy but wonder if any other guys out there are in the same boat as me and what did you do to overcome this?

I think should seek therapy. In fact I would highly encourage it. I have had friends who have gone for it and they say it actually works and I think it will definitely help you too.

I know it can be hard to actually go for it but please give it a shot. Mental health is very important and it’s good that you are already willing to share what you feel. Please seek help. I hope you’ll be okay
