Congratulations! You were able to get a job in this economy when everyone else seems to be looking everywhere and finding nothing.

You probably worked hard for this position. Or had a stroke of luck. Or maybe it's a family favor. In the end you found gainful employment, so well done.

However, despite these feelings of accomplishment and relief that you can pay rent this month and put food on the table, you have a little guilt hanging out in the back of your mind. You're now a part of the American workforce, but some of your friends still are jobless, causing you to feel guilty whenever you're hanging out with them.

Well, for one, I would say that this persons that finally got a job, does not need to feel guilty. Not at all. I'm not sure if these "Friends" are doing or saying something to "make" this person feel guilty, but guilt should not be a feeling once a person finds a job. It is projection. I'd feel very sad for any of my friends that were jobless (I don't have any friends that are jobless right now, since my best friend just got a job 2 months ago after 3 or 4 years of looking). and I'd hope that my friends get jobs. . .and if I got one . . I'd hold my friends chronic joblessness in compassion and I'd GRIEVE over the fact that my friend can't find work.

I am sure that there are others out there who are feeling the same thing..I have a niece who just got a full time job, and wasn't even out of work more than a month. She no longer talks to me anymore, and I am sure the rest of my family wonders why I couldn't get a job as quick as she did, so they are all avoiding the whole subject with me.

It is a very lonely place, being out of work....we loose all those who we thought really cared about us!
