I am so sorry that you have lost your job. I think 30 minutes was a long time to talk with you if your boss was looking for a resignation. I would have caved in 10 minutes so your tougher than you think, sweetie.
Are you in any kind of position to look for a job in a different field? Something less stressful where you could be a worker bee instead of in management. It may not pay as well but the stress free position would be worth a cut in salary.
Please remember you are a good person and anxiety is not who you are, it is a disorder that you deal with and I know right now it feels like this is horrible and never going away. It will get better again. I know as I have lived with it most of my life and I am much older than you I am sure. :)
So keep posting and give yourself a hug. Turn you negative thoughts into positive thoughts and know we care.
Thank you so much, Kitt for your kind words. With resigning, I was able give a 2 week notice and have 2 more weeks of pay, which I really need. Fortunately, I have my own health insurance, so I won't lose that from them, but I will have to have money to pay for it on my own.
I would like to look for something in a different field, I just have no experience in anything else, and finding any transferable skills I might have, and selling myself just seems very daunting. I have to make enough to support myself, but you are right, less pay would be worth it to not be so stressed all the time.
Hugs to you too!
Thank you for telling me your story. It's good to know that someone else understands. I'm trying to pull myself up. I'm going to meet with a career counselor today, which should be good, but unfortunately, it will probably be the only time I am able to meet with her, since she is expensive and unemployment is looming around a very close corner. It sounds like you're hanging in there OK. You're telling yourself good things at least. I am trying to tell myself those things too, that there must be something out there for me, and that I must have something worthwhile to contribute somewhere. It's hard though, because like you, my confidence is really down right now. I just want to be happy, and feel like what I do matters. Thanks again, and keep me posted about your situation as well.
Hey greeneyedgirl friend,
You do make a difference in everything you do and you will find a job. Just keep staying in the moment and keep your sense of humor.
I wish you the best with the counselor. Keep us posted.
You are in our hearts and on our minds.
