I was laid off a year ago and still looking for any type of work possible. In the past week I have attended a workshop that catered to 40+ individuals who were also laid off and looking to find ways to move forward. Many of us are mid-aged and may not know how to cope. We have mortgages to pay, putting our kids through University or just have not dealt with this type of event in our lives before. This workshop has made me realize that perhaps there is a need for a group such as this to get together and talk with other people in the same situation. Together we can help each other move forward; provide assistance in how we are coping; network; socialize and perhaps empower each other to get through this stressful time. Through our contacts we can have guest speakers share their knowledge and expertise as to where we can get the assistance that each of us need whether it is financial, emotional, career coaching etc. You bring the ideas, we will make it happen. This is not to bring us down, but to rise above the occasion. As they say, when the door closes, another one opens but it is difficult to see that when you are in an emotional turmoil.
