Loss of a job

The loss of a job is a significant hardship that many of us will have to endure at some point in our lives. When we are laid off, downsized, or fired from our employment we often experience feelings of shock, disbelief, anxiety, fear, anger, and shame. We worry about our future opportunities and our financial well-being.

A job loss doesn’t only affect our economic position, it can put stress on our relationships at home and in our social circles, it can shape how we feel about ourselves, and plant seeds of self-doubt and insecurity.

Emotional writing during this time will help you understand what you are feeling, help put things in better perspective, and help you plan the direction you want to take.
