    Although this post is over two years old, today I found it soothing. Unemployment is perhaps hardest when it happens suddenly, not by choice, and it happens to workaholics whose identity was intertwined with their work. Work gone, social network gone…Can be quite devastating…

    Thank you for this fantastic article. One of the biggest issues being unemployed, is that you feel so alone.

    This article put things in perspective. There is safety in numbers and it helps a great deal to know that what we are not alone.

      Hi Cindy, Thanks so much for commenting. I know very well the experience of being unemployed and feeling like I’m the only one. But it’s amazing to realize all the wonderful, smart, talented people who have lost jobs and how it so often leads to great opportunities. I will add a link here in case you haven’t seen this other post http://www.murphywrites.com/2011/04/thoughts-on-losing-a-job/

    Hot yoga. Every day. For 90 minutes. I realized that my identity was completely wrapped up in my job–and that in reality, I am so much more than my work. The grief was real and palpable, and I am glad I allowed myself the space to grieve. Now, on to the next exciting adventure!
