Job Gone - Curse or Blessing

Job Gone - Curse or Blessing

3 mins

Tring Tring, phone rings, "Hi, Am I speaking to XYZ"...."Yes"... Good day XYZ, this is ur HR and I am sorry to inform you that management has decided for layoff and unfortunately you are part of that list. Please serve the notice period. You will be paid as per the contract. Thanks"......Then that killing silence...

Now everything seems to be gloomy. You look at your kids, then wife, and then parents. Everything is finished. Shall I suicide?....but then "I am a father", " I am a husband" " my parents"..."Inka kya hoga"..."inki kya fault"

That day passes. You get slightly calmer. Then you approach Ur wife and then parents. They pacify u. Now you start with bottomline thought. Ok now I have is notice period salary and my PF. So "Yes I am done" but " Not dusted". 

And yes, now positivity starts stepping in. " Yaar last thing that I have to do is change my city, I will survive then"

Now the positive journey starts from " Main kya kare Sakta hoon" to "Main kya-kya kar Sakta hoon"

You start dwelling in your past. Realise that there were certain activities or skills you acquired to complete Ur core job till date. " Arre yes, I have these skills and experience and yes, today's world or rather my own city has options in these fields. Yes I will do that. Haan yaar, my friend has made a career out of this aur wo to mujhse bhi zyaada duffer tha"

And that's when that gloomy situation happens to start shining brightest. You get back to smiling, thinking extremely positive. You become more cheerful now compared to when you were actually working. And you log in and put your papers down. " Yes now I can"

Easier said than done. But do we have a choice of what happened? We didn't volunteer for separation. We tried to convince but in vain. Now even if you try and commit suicide, what guarantee that you will die?...if you think of taking sleeping pills, you might end up living paralyzed and become liability then asset to your family...if you think of jumping from rooftop or jump in front of running vehical, you might survive with a physical disability, etc etc etc.. Positivity is the only option...
