@CD you are totally right. And I’m already in a better place with great freelance. I just can’t let that anger go. #therapy2018!

OP I was laid off a few months ago and thought I wouldn’t let the anger go either. It was intense and stuck with me for a WHILE. But eventually it became less of a focus, and now I feel like it has completely disappeared and replaced with “meh, who cares?” If your former company is anything like mine (or, if it’s the same one), it’s not somewhere you want to be. They’re worse off than you are. And with freelance roles you can be free of the political BS for a bit and just focus on doing your job.

I'm honestly very open to multiple pathways and at this moment aiming for promotion and exposure asap!
