Have you ever had your world crashing down on you?
In the month of April (2017), I lost two jobs. I’ve been working at the first one for over a year and the owner of the shop decided to close her shop because she didn’t have the same passion today as she did when she started. I fully support her decision because I only want what’s best for her. For the second job, after I was hospitalized, I was almost immediately replaced. I was in a groove with all of these part-time jobs; I was busy but I could still keep my nights (most of the time). I really like my boss for the first job, and I really like the staff and students for the second one.
I was so upset at the second job loss, because it wasn’t my fault, and I was discharged and able to resume work again next week.
Now I’m left with one. I’m thankful to have this boss be a good one as well, and she kept me busy when I was out of work (even though she didn’t know it at the time). Keeping my mind busy with other work is a good coping mechanism. I’m hunting for jobs again and not being so upset about it; it’s just the way it is and I’m moving on.
Thanks for reading.
