Disappointment

I'd sensed I was very close. I'd applied on a whim, and then when it became more tangible--an interview!--I let my hopes get up. I daydreamed. I consoled myself at minor irritations with the idea that I'd been elsewhere soon, anyway. And then a very polite email came:

Although your experience and accomplishments are excellent, we are
continuing our search to fill the position with another candidate whose
experience and background will be better matched to our current needs.
But my background is a perfect match, so I thought. I'm more irrationally upset than I should be. It's frustrating. I feel like I'm going to be stuck where I am for the rest of my life.

But you won't be. One way or another, your shiatsu practice will help you avoid the stuckness. Or something else will. Really.

How very frustrating, kStyle. I'm sorry. I know what that need for escape feelings like, and the hopefulness. I hope something turns for you soon and a kind and well-compensating employer finds you and makes great use of your talents.

Thanks to both of you. Emma, I think you're right: I need to keep my eye on the prize (shiatsu practice). Maybe a different f/t job--however awesome--would have just been a distraction from my real goal. Still stings, though.
