Unemployment is existing in the unknown. Humans don’t like that. It feels unsafe. We’d much prefer to cling to certainty and solid ground. Even if that solid ground is toxic or weed infested. But with courage and support, we can leverage this shaky time as our greatest strength – an opportunity to expand beyond our preconceived notions of who we are, and what we’re “supposed” to be. Letting go of our former selves (whether forcibly or not) can be a true gift of liberation – a chance for re-creation and hope.
