There is hope, losing your job may be the best thing that happens to you.
I know it's a cliche people say "there's something better waiting for you", "you'll be so much happier" Well I'm living proof. Looking back now I realize my old job was a toxic relationship and I was holding on to when it was really really good. Sounds like a classic bad relationship holding on to the old times and not facing the bad reality its become. The company had changed in every way and everyone I once truly enjoyed working with moved on in one way or another. For whatever reason I didn't. I slowly had my spirit flattened and was completely unappreciated. I was part of a RIF and it was difficult for me as my identity is so tied up into my job. Confessed classic Type A, workaholic here. I was looking for a permanent position for over a year and covid did not help. BUT I finally found a new position and I have to say I'm soooo happy! Of course it feels great to be working, earning money, benefits OMG YES benefits!! What is sooo eye opening is that I'm appreciated! In a very short period of time my boss and some others have gone out of their way to call me and compliment my performance and how I handle issues. I have forgotten how that feels. I literally can't remember how many years it's been in my last job that I received a genuine compliment. I feel like myself again! I'm very grateful for blessings and prayers answered. I lite quite a few candles!! So don't loose hope if you are over X age, and been looking longer then you are comfortable with it can and will come together. Good Luck, I hope this provides some of that light at the end of the tunnel you may need.
