How do you cope with being laid off? I’ve changed jobs many times, even moved to the other side of the world without job and work visa (it all worked out fine) and after I left my previous job I took 6 months off to travel before I started this job at a network agency I loved. I always had confidence. This is the first time I feel so heartbroken and almost grieving about it, and even the quality of work sucked (but the network and people are good). How do I get over this? I want myself back!

It'll be ok OP. ♥️ Not every place you work for will be a fit for you, or you for them. Consider each place a new story with new experiences and when it's time, you end the chapter and start the next one. Gotta take the good and bad, but never let one chapter define you.


Thank you. You’re right. I’m more than this.


It happens. It'll get easier. Fulfill yourself and you'll forget about them in no time!


Pour all your energy into finding the next great opportunity and your grief will dissipate. Remember it’s not about you, it’s about the sucky times.

Things will be fine. Believe me. You’ve been through it. I’ve been through it. One way or another, that job will find you (play that Blondie tune in your head, it will make you feel better).

Same thing happened to me this month! Trying not to take it personally and be patient for job market to get a little better, but it’s extremely hard to stay positive.
