Some people . . .
I don't know whether this describes you or not, but some people equate personal worth/loveablity with work status, career prestige, income, etc.
Such people can feel worthless/bad if not working, so they take the first job offered -- even if it's a "bad job". Taking such a job temporarily may be needed to pay bills, keep your home, etc -- but if so, you can still look & work. Good luck to you!
