?I lost my job last week. ?I was there for six years. ?It was...



"I lost my job last week.  I was there for six years.  It was the first job I've ever lost.  It's hard not to take it personally when someone tells you that you're not needed.  There were ten people on my team, and I'm the one they chose.  So my mind has been running through all the possible things I could have done wrong.  The first few days were the hardest.  I spent a lot of time crying.  But m…y birthday was a few days ago, and my friends took me out for a taco night.  And it woke me up.  I started laughing.  I couldn't even remember why I'd felt so sad.   My life was so much bigger than that job.  I'm healthy, I live in a wonderful city, and I have a great group of friends.  I just lost a small piece of the pie."
