We count on our jobs to support ourselves and our family, to provide for all our needs. Losing a job can feel like the rug has been pulled out from under you, leaving you panicked, confused, and depressed. It may feel like the end of the world, but so many of us have been laid off or fired, and end up finding something way better for us as a result. Please don’t worry, and know you are not alone. It’s important to have faith in yourself and your abilities, grab unemployment immediately if you can, and get your insurance situation in order (COBRA insurance, etc.)
The most important thing is to practice self-care and stay positive. Take it day by day, and put together a game plan. Here are a few other important things every person who loses their job should hear. Check them out and trust the process!
