Who's fault is it, anyway?

One thought that seems to permeate the loss of a job is who's fault is it anyway? In today's society it seems so many folks play the blame game. We tend to find excuses or blame others for our current situation. Did you ever think that maybe it just wasn't in the stars for you? Unfortunately many people accept a job for the wrong reasons and never realize that until we leave, whether at their behest or our own.

One suggestion is to spend some time grieving then say to yourself that this has opened an opportunity for you. Allowing you to move to your next opportunity in life and usually much better anyway.

Dad used to say that "everything happens for the best". Now that is a simple statement but why look for a more clever or wordier statement. Move on, step out and see what is awaiting you.

Loss of Job

Let's be frank here. The loss of a job, whether by your choice, or their choice is a traumatic event in your life. Even when you know it is going to happen it ranks right up there with a death in the family, marriage, newborn, buying a house or catastrophic illness. In order to pass through this phase you need to grieve. We all do it our own way. Don't overlook this important part of the job loss.
Hint-Talking about it to friends is a great start, get it out of your system.
