    Sorry to hear that, Z-Gone. I hope it won't be long before you find another job.

    That really stinks, but hopefully you can view it as an opportunity? I know - that never sounds especially comforting, but give it a shot and see if you can't redirect yourself towards something more fulfilling in life, even if you are in the industry you intended to be in. There are more opportunities out there and this is a chance to re-evaluate things. Good luck!

    That's what I'm praying for. I realize that God has a plan for me and that I just need to take it in stride.

    That suuuuuuuuuucks. I know how it is, unfortunately. There's no way around the way it makes you feel, but there IS light at the end of the tunnel.

    Hang in there, Zargon! As a freelancer, I know the ups and downs of employment so I sympathize. But a new opportunity may be right around the corner!

    Can you collect since you were laid off? If so, at least that little amount will help rather having nothing at all during the dry spell.

    I'm sorry to hear (read) that, Z.

    I've been out of work for a year now, focusing on finishing my degree program and taking care of our little Hermione and her growing menagerie of pets. Remember to stay focused on what you excell in, keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities, keep the faith, and look at the bright side, whatever it might be. Good luck to you!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    My prayers go out to you Zargon. I don't know what your situation was at your work place. but often things like this, are better looked at as a blessing in disguise. exspecially, if your in a very negative work environment like I am. you know something is wrong when there is so much hate, the atmosphere is thick with it. snickers and sneers, dirty looks not to mention rumors of you being the next lay off. are all tell tale signs its time to move on, despite all your valiant efforts to be a model employe. and bending over backwards to get along with everyone.

    often time its the green monster, jealousy envy you have something they'll never have. a house, your pay rate personality charisma, your happy they are not. the list go'se on and on but the fact is, once many of your coworkers decide they don't like you for whatever reason. they'll make it very tough for you until you walk out. quit even, the best bet is find a more positive work environment, and also it may seem a bit strange. but don't give to much information about yourself that can be latter used against you. like your a toy collector, you belive in the posibillty of alien life elsewhere in the universe. some people will jump like hungry jackels and cry out for you to be fired! this I don't understand at all, since everyone is different everyone has there own belifes values outlooks. its a shame you cant be yourself, what makes anyone normal. believing in nothing, that's not for me ill rather move on. but anyways many well wish's go out to you my friend.

    That sucks.

    About 8 years ago I got laid off from my job that I had for the previous 14 years and thought I was going to be ruined. I fell into a deep depression. In the end though, loosing that job was the best thing that ever happened to me. It made me go out and find another job which is 100 x's better than my old one. I'm still there today and actually love my job.

    Keep your head up. When one door closes, another opens up. Like me, maybe this we be a good thing and you'll find something better.
