Just over a month ago I was laid off from my dream job. No fault of mine, it was admitted others didn’t want to do their job so I was cut loose. Incredibly unfair. I have not been able to pick up the pieces of my life. I’m angry, humiliated, depressed, confused, scared and lost. Oh, I’m bored too. I don’t know what to do with myself. I left a horrible very high stress high paying job to take my dream job. For a lousy 6 months.
I cant bring myself ever go back In the industry I was so badly treated. It changed me, led to massive anxiety issues and emotional scarring. Humiliation too.
I eat massive amounts of junk everyday. I drink like a fish and smoke like a chimney. None of which we can afford on unemployment.
My husband has been very good about all of this, but the guilt I feel for killing the budget and feeling like a loser is overwhelming.
How do I find my way? How do I stop eating smoking & drinking my feelings away? How in the world do I figure out what to do with my life?
