Your greatest insecurity, heightened. Your fears manifesting into reality. Feeling like you’re not enough, feeling like you’re not worthy, feeling like you don’t compare, feeling like you want to crawl away into a hole and cry.
If you’ve been let go, cut, furloughed, or outright terminated, these feelings probably resonate with you. As kids we learn to idolize our caretakers and loved ones. We learn that work is life - not by listening but by watching our parents and older family members engage in the world of work and gain affirmation from it. Then we grow up and it’s our turn. “I must choose a career and become the very best at it. My job and my career define who I am, what I’m worth, and who I get to connect with.” However, in reality, at the drop of a hat or the spread of a virus, your career and job prospects can vanish. It’s unrealistic to believe that we’ll always be in control of our professional lives and trajectories.
If you’re caught in a cycle and are struggling to see the light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel, you are not alone.
