Death is the most-commonly associated with grief feelings.
But death doesn’t have the monopoly on grief or loss feelings. Not by a long shot.
There are 40+ plain old life events that can bring about feelings of loss, heartache, grief, and layoffs definitely feature as one of those life events. Sucky as it is.
Other feelings may be up as well: anger, resentment, bitterness, betrayal, shame. Yup.
Could be more that I haven’t mentioned as well.
Instead of talking more here, I suggest you click into this week’s podcast and give it a listen. It’s a relatively short episode, but it’s got a lot of information, including the stories and feelings of what I went through when I lost multiple jobs as well.
Thinking of you & sending so much care and support your way,
