In 2004 I was offered a church janitor job. At the time I thought I was way above it. But this was because I had incomplete information. I didn’t know I was dead on arrival in interview situations due to my thick glasses. Giving me accurate information about myself would have been useful in this situation. Yes it would have lowered my self-esteem and given me poorer self-image. But sometimes an accurate assessment of ones self is a necessary thing even if it causes more emotional pain in the short run.
