ALMOST all labour sectors around the world have been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and even the International Labor Organization (ILO) is signalling that more people will lose their jobs in the coming months.
Losing a source of income, especially in the current state, is not a small thing, it can cause stress, emotional upset and depression.
For those affected by the current circumstances, there are steps you can take to help avoid the feelings and emotions that overwhelm oneself.
- Accept the facts
The first thing to do is to accept the fact that you lost your job. Try to control your feelings and emotions instead of thinking nonsense.
Also, remember that we are human beings who will definitely feel threatened and sad when trapped in a situation. It is best to calm down, get closer to God to ask Him for guidance.
- Awake from sorrow
Sadness is a natural thing when something unexpected happens but just believed, the sadness will not last long and will be replaced by joy.
Make your sad to get up because is the only way to overcome all the problems and burdens at hand.
- Don’t think about things that haven’t happened yet
The sadness and anxiety that we get when we get fired because we think too much about what the future holds. Focus on the current situation is more important.
At this point, you can already plan what to do – whether you want to relax, find a new job, or start a business.
- Evaluate yourself
List your strengths and weaknesses. Trust me, through the list later, you will find some answers that you may not have known about yourself before. It may become the starting point for a new adventure in your life!
