When you are made redundant, it hurts. If you loved your job it hurts all the more. You can feel confused, hurt, lost, vulnerable, insecure, upset and even betrayed. For some people it can be a downward into depression and for some they feel their life isn’t worth living……..
Stop – Stop this right now.
These feelings are all natural given the circumstances which have been thrust upon you. Believe me, I know what it is like, I have been there, twice.
You have to acknowledge these feelings and allow them to take their course, but not allow them to take over you.
Treat redundancy as an opportunity to:
- Give yourself a new lease of life
- Do something different
- Explore a new career
- Turn your hobbies into a job by starting your own business, there are many free seminars you can attend and free information available on the internet
- Take a course at college, university, or through distance learning for example with the Open University
- Doing voluntary work or work experience gives you the perfect opportunity to explore different job roles before you make the leap
