Gives you a brand new perspective on things, after you’d lost your job, and now, after you’d reexamined yourself, you can start again, on a fresh note, translated…
As everybody is ushering in the brand new year, I’d had to face the facts, of my company closing down, and being out of a job.
Losing the job during the Chinese New Years is an awful thing, and, all of my friends and families had commented, “That’s such a shame, there goes, your year-end bonus!”
Recalling just six months ago, when I’d realized, that my company was laying off the employees one by one, I’d already started planning. After all, I’m getting older, and, the opportunities won’t come at me like they used to. Even so, I’d still held that positive attitude, study at home, or, apply for new job.
This year was just the year when my son is taking his entrance exams for high school, I’d busied myself in and out daily, chauffeuring him every single day; my daughter who’d come home for her winter break got to sleep until she wakes herself, and enjoy the home cooked meals prepared by her mother. See how happy she looks, this, was the small-time happiness she never had the chance of experiencing since birth.
Is it scary, to become unemployed? I’d asked myself this a lot recently. Because I’d lost my job, I’d had more time, to prepare the meals for my family, to tidy up the house more; because I’d lost my job, I’d gotten more time to stay at home, and, after having that honest heart-to-heart with myself, I’d realized, my past mistakes.
Losing my job became a turning point for me, I expect that I will be able to face my unknown future with more bravery, because I’d gotten beaten, losing my job and all. Carrying on with this positive mindset, and, embrace the bottom half of my life that is solely mine.
And so, you’d carried that positive outlook on life, even though you’d lost your job, and, it’s that positive attitude that will help you in the futures to come.
