I am now unemployed...
Wednesday, September 02, 2015
Maybe some of you know already, but I lost my job. My boss called me in his office Monday afternoon to tell me they had to cut me and two other people. We were a team of 12, so those are quite drastic cuts. It has nothing to do with me, or the quality of my work, it's just how it is.
I got really emotional, because I loved my job, but espacially the team. It was all guys except for me, and I love working with men, because there is so much less drama!
I packed my stuff, said goodbye to everyone, and left. Don't worry, they are still paying me 4 weeks, + my vacations until this point in the year (so almost 2 weeks) plus the overtime I had accumulated (another week). And if I still don't find work, I'll have governement support.
I've never been let go before, so it was hard. But I see it as an opportunity to see what I really want to do. Do I want to go back to school? Where do I really want to work? Etc.
Monday afternoon, I wanted to eat all the food, and I remember thinking: People will understand, no one will judge me. But I was wrong: I would have judge myself quite harshly. So I didn't do it.
Instead I made a nice dinner, that I ate with my sister.
My family is soooo important to me. They are so supportive and loving. I don't have that many friends, because my sisters are my best friends. It sounds cliche, but it's true!
I used to work with my dad (he fortunately wasn't cut), so it's hard no to see him everyday, but I'll get use to it.
I really wish everybody could have a family like mine, but I know it's precious and rare. Through my weightloss journey and other hard situation, they've support me unconditionnaly. And I know I can count on them to cheer me up when I will be discourage if I don't find a new job quickly.
And I guess not binging because I was depressed paid off, because I lost 4 pounds this week! So, YEAH!
