At MY age...fired?!?! Like IntentionGirl, I’m in the same boat and needing encouraging thoughts as well. I recently have been terminated from my employer of almost 8 years for being tardy. Yes, I was tardy more often than not usually 5 minutes and never more than 10 minutes. I have two little ones (3 and 1), and trying to leave the house with them (during school traffic and work rush hour) or to do anything with them in a timely manner is like trying to herd cats in a circus! I am very resentful because I was very loyal to my employer and fair. If I was late, I made sure to stay however long I was late. People often times left early and would report staying a complete 8 hours!! Sometimes I did not take my breaks to be “fair”. And never did I call in sick for myself. ...I am only trying to be a good mother.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been let go and it’s been devastating. I too feel like I’m throwing my resumé down a black hole. What I’m fearing the most is that my termination will keep me from getting hired. My termination has been so stressful and very depressing. What advice you can share when dealing with terminations and obtaining an opportunity to be interviewed?
