My world has fallen apart. I just don’t know how I am going to be able to get to the next moment. My distress is so great. I just lost my job that I had for many years. They had no real reason for letting me go. I was told that the company was downsizing. I need to know how I am going to make it.
There is no way to get rid of the feelings that you are having right now as those feelings are real. Voicing them is good and healthy. Reaching out is important. You will need to allow yourself to grieve this loss. Not only have you lost your job, but there are other losses connected to the job loss that need to be grieved. An example would be the loss of your co-workers that you will no longer see. Seek help from other family members and friends. Sharing our pain and telling our story promotes healing. Care for yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Share your pain with a clergy person or a grief counselor. You will eventually need to let go of the past. You can have hope knowing that God loves you and He knows what is happening. As you pray and stay close to Him, He will direct your every step. Loss is uncomfortable, inconvenient, and painful, but you will not be destroyed as you trust in Him.
