Many people’s livelihood has been affected by the Corona virus ? pandemic and the recent worldwide lockdowns and social distancing measures.
You might be one of the people, who’s employment was affected. Whether you’ve been laid off, downsized, forced to take early retirement, or seen contract work dry up, losing your employment is one of life’s most stressful experiences.
Aside from the obvious financial anguish it can cause, the stress of losing a job can also take a heavy toll on your mood, relationships, and overall mental and emotional health.Our jobs are often more than just the way we make a living. They influence how we see ourselves, as well as the way others see us.
Even if you didn’t love your job, it likely provided you a social outlet and gave a structure, purpose, and meaning to your life. Suddenly finding yourself out of work can leave you feeling hurt, angry, or depressed. You might be questioning your identity, grieving all that you’ve lost, or feeling anxious about what the future holds.
