yes, it canPosted: July 14, 2014
That is, yes it can happen to me. I was never under any illusion that it couldn’t. Getting laid off that is.
I was notified on Friday. I can’t complain. I’ve dodged the bullet many times. This time I didn’t. To change metaphors, I’ve said for years that it’s like the children’s game of musical chairs. It’s all about where you happen to find yourself when the music stops.
That doesn’t make it any easier when it actually happens. As I wrote of Facebook, “Did you know that it is possible to cycle through denial, anger, depression, bargaining, and acceptance multiple times in a single hour?” That’s what Friday afternoon was like.
So I move ahead. I trust that this is the beginning of something bigger and better.
