Losing a job can seem overwhelming and is one of life’s most challenging experiences that none of us are ever truly prepared for. It’s important to know that what you’re going through isn’t your fault and can happen to anyone – don’t blame yourself.
Take some time to reflect on your great work, the impact of your contributions, and reward yourself for all that you’ve done. You may find it helpful to make a note of your proudest professional achievements – starting the sentence with “I am proud of how I…”
Being made redundant can make it easy to lose sight of the positive things in your life. Try making a note of anything you’re appreciative of – no matter how big or small. Taking a few moments to reflect on the things you can be thankful for can go a long way in helping you to feel better and keep things in perspective.
