    Default everyone around me doesn't think i can handle a job

    but there's one available at the local bakery and since i love baking i feel like going for it, plus if i am able to handle a job I don't have to go on disability which would be awesome. What's some ways to boost my confidence?

    Remember how much you love baking. Remember that there's an opening that they need to fill. They pretty much need someone like you, someone who's passionate about baking. If you like something, you'll do a good job at it--and that's what the bakery wants.

    You've got something to offer them. That is the idea that will give you confidence.

    Don't listen the people around you who think that you're not capable of it, because it's simply not true.

    go. it'll be hard work. early hours i imagine.
    but the payoff should be good. you could
    learn about the business from the ground
    up, and perhaps even do your own side
    catering business.

    try it. what do you have to lose?

    oh what's that like?
    you have to be in a stress free environment or something?
    don't know if a kitchen is a place for that.

    You prob want to start out small purplz...take something part time... do they have a part-time position?
    I think you could handle a job but i would suggest building up the hours rather than jumping in the deep end. It's posssible for sure, try to stay positive and not do the all or nothing thing.

    Surely just doing it will prove them wrong and change opinions?

    If you think that everyone around you doesn't think you can handle a job surely they must have fair reason for those opinions.

    I'll give you the canned MBTI answer. Everything I've read is that IFPs can do anything as long as they believe in it. If it's personally fulfilling. It seems like you have that going for you. No point in paying attention to what others say. They're only measuring your habits when it came to things you weren't into.

    seriously? it's a fucking bakery job. if they don't think you're capable of doing that right, then they clearly view you as a child and don't respect you enough. don't listen to them, they're imbeciles
