|The negative feelings associated with job loss can be mitigated by a supportive family, finding a new, better job, or simply by maintaining a positive attitude. Nevertheless, the loss of your job—in many ways a symbol of your livelihood and your worth as a person—can affect you for years to come. But wallowing in your loss is less than productive, and can prolong the trauma of the event. |
Instead identify what you are going through, talk to your family and loved ones, and make the most of this time to reexamine who you are and where you want to be.
