It happened.. I was let go from my job.

Recommended Posts

I guess this is a continuation of my thread earlier..

http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t37849

 

At the end of last week, my company laid me off. shitfan.gif

 

I feel so lost; I have to say this is one of the worse feelings that I have had in a long time. I really thought that I would be okay emotionally handling it; but the emotional part is the worse part. I don't know why it's affecting me like this; it is ONLY a job after all .. but it honestly has really turned me inside out.

 

Thanks for listening.. guess I am thinking that it will help me feel better if I just get out what I am feeling.

Oh no, I am so sorry Shannon.

 

My FI was let go from his job on NYE day. We have so many other friends and family members who have been let go since.

 

He took it as an opportunity to go back to school, which is working out well for now anyways.

 

It really is tough, emotionally. sad.gif hug2.gif

Wow, I am so sorry. And honestly, you are allowed to feel bad emotionally! It's a sucky situation, no matter how well you prepared for it, it's still hard. So you have to let yourself go thru those feelings. Let it all out here, that's what we are here for. {Virtual hugs to you}

i was laid off about 2 months ago, and dealing with it emotionally is the toughest part so don't feel bad about that. i didn't even like my job, but i was still devastated. give yourself a week or two to feel like crap, then just stop. do your best to not let it go longer than that. look for a job and be aggressive about it, but still let this be an opportunity to do some things you never had a chance to because you were too busy. chances are, you'll never have this much free time until you retire!

 

i wrote this in your other thread, but i'm in nj also, so if you have any questions about the unemployment process let me know.

I'm sorry hon, things are tough for so many people these days, it totally sucks that this is happening everywhere. Just remember that every closed door opens others, so take this time to venture out on new opportunities ~ lots of hugs hug2.gif

I'm sorry Shannon. So many people are going through this right now... both of my parents and my FIL are laid off right now (Michigan is horrible). It's scary and frustrating, but try to take some time to do things you normally wouldn't get to do. Hopefully something better will come along...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
