More layoffs today. We lost two key people from my department, two others, and rumors of more from other departments. My heart hasn't stopped pounding in hours. It seems like people are being picked off almost at random with no official announcement about anything. Just people crying in the hallways and offices suddenly empty.

I wish I felt safe at work. Or I wish I felt safe looking for other work.

I wish I believed myself when I tell myself that I will be fine no matter what happens, that I have savings and am not about to wind up homeless, that I will be able to find a new job when I'm eventually laid off too.

But I don't.


  1. Keep telling yourself you will be fine -- because really, you will be. What is the worst that could happen?

    Some days I believe myself, some days it is harder. Sorry so stressful. :/

  2. Does it help if other people tell you that you'll be fine? I haven't decided if it's annoying or helpful yet.

    For now, good luck!
