ANGER

It’s coming. I can see it in social media updates. I’ve had it in numerous messages.

People are getting angry.

They didn’t deserve this. They did nothing wrong. They don’t deserve to unemployed. They don’t deserve to not be going to work next week.

There is no job fairy who’s going to give you a job tomorrow.

Every single person that gets a job in this market is the exception to the rule, not the norm and that’s challenging for us all.

For some, they’ve never been here before. They’ve never been out of work, and the days become weeks, and the weeks have, for some become months.

I am sorry.

People are trying to help; they are doing things THEY’VE never done before to try and help.

I’m not saying don’t get angry, but I am saying use that anger to fuel your growth; your journey back to the thing you want and the thing you are good at.

If you want help, then we are here.
