So, you lost your job? You got fired. You got canned. You got the boot. Whatever you call it, the bottom line is, it sucks. It’s happened to me, and trust me, it is something I hope to never have take place again. Has it happened to you?
If it’s happened, there are a number of things you’re going to feel. Chances are you’re going to panic a little bit. You’ll be angry and hurt. No matter how you look at it, the experience and the aftermath are going to weigh you down.
Once the initial shock wears off, which can take a few hours or a few days, then the time comes to collect yourself and start looking forward. That sounds pretty simple, but as I recently discovered, that path isn’t the one that’s always taken.
