Maybe other readers wih more experience of the job market and how it curently works, could advise on some aspects of your question. Congratulations on finding a CBT therapist, and that ought to work out well. You sound like the sort of guy any seisnible employer ought to value and want to have working for him. Changing to become some sort of a phony "kickass" type isn' likely to help. But ask your CBT therapist to help you work also on the diference between being assertive and aggressive, and by all means learn to become more assertive. You're not a loser, and your sons are likely, rather, to inherit the ability to be a decent human being, like their dad and mom.
