you know what really grinds my gears

you can’t put “I am 6 months sober”

or “I am managing bipolar disorder really well”

on your résumé or job applications.

that’s some serious stigma-ass trifling bullshit.

the end.

    I’ve been taking a job skills class and it’s such a game, everything we have to do and say to get a job. Sometimes I wonder if hiring managers wouldn’t appreciate some legit honesty once in awhile instead of canned responses.

    Literally. Why can’t you put “3 months clean from….” on your CV? Also, another thing, is that people are so prejudice against the mentally ill. Like, if you’ve been in a psych ward, it makes it harder for you to get a job or go to certain unis…unfair much?

    I totally agree here. Whatever anyone else thinks, these are all achievements. Goals that you’ve reached. Why should it be treated different to anything else? Xx
