Hello!

I lost my job in July...Collapse )

I feel for anyone else out there in a similar position. I also feel better for getting that off my chest :)

Article on coping with redundancy

When you first find out that you are going to be made redundant, it's not uncommon to experience a number of emotions. You might feel shock and fear as to what's going to happen to you. You'll feel loss and perhaps start doubting your self-worth. You might be angry and ask "Why me?"

These are all quite natural emotions to feel and are only to be expected. In the early stages, talking to your family and friends will be very important. It can help, psychologically, if you tell people that the job has been made redundant as opposed to saying, "I've been made redundant". The end result is the same but by keeping that distinction from the beginning, you prevent feeling as though you've become a victim. It's also important to remember that there is no longer a stigma attached to being made redundant. We live in an age where no job is for life anymore and people will often have several job or career changes before they reach retirement age. Think of it as a new chapter and an opportunity to find something better.
