Having been laid off 9 months ago here’s a piece from Matt Labash that I can certainly relate to.
The reaction was ugly. There was open weeping, defiant cursing, days of pickled denial. And that was just me. I was too out of it to clock colleagues’ responses. But once gathering myself, I decided to look at the glass as being half-full. We hadn’t done anything wrong, besides going into journalism instead of finance. And this wasn’t termination, the end of a way of life I’d known my entire adult life. It was an extended Christmas vacation from which I’d never return. Plus, it would give me more time to fish.
