Do you sometimes feel that there is no point? The hope in things being better is just not there. It is. Choice, showing Gratitude and taking the next step will get you thru the Valley and back on to even ground.
Do you build long term relationships? They are beneficial when opportunities present themselves, you already have a deep trust and affection and don't have to wonder if the people involved are right....just whether the actual offer is something you want to be included in.
