Being laid off is a terrible feeling but it's a harsh reality that some of us are facing during this time (speaking from very recent experience).
It's important that after being laid off you have a strong family, friends to fall back on and to take care of yourself and your mental health first and foremost.
You should always be optimistic and look at the positive that being laid off can lead to. Such as the start of a path that would have never been pursued or perhaps a total change in your career path. Being laid is terrible and doesn't feel good but like all bad situations, you must make the most of it.
I wanted to start a thread to discuss being laid off:
What are some of the possible opportunities that can come of it?
How do you bounce back from being laid off?
