    Hi recently due to losing my job in a stupid way I have been feeling very suicidal and finding it hard to look forward to anything or have the motivation to try and find another job now.

    I only have myself to blame.
    It is nice to be able to post here though

    Welcome aboard, Jake. I’m so sorry that you lost your job. You don’t have to be hard on yourself. I can understand how discouraging it must be for you right now. But don’t give up. Hope you’ll find a new job soon. Hugs & prayers!

    Hi Jake, welcome to SF. Job losses are brutal. I have been laid off 3 times since 2009. And I am in my 60's. I know it is hard. But I also know you can find other work. You just have to try, try and try some more. Put in many applications. Put in applications for jobs that you don't even think you want. One of them might just turn out to be right for you. My biggest suggestion would be to be very open minded about jobs. Don't get locked into on type of work, or one salary. If you are open to new possibilities and making less money, you will have a much better chance of finding work.

    Hi it might be a bad replay in your mind over and over but maybe look as this as a learning experience. You are a human being and we all mess up major at one point or few times doesn't matter just keep going.

    Hi, I am/have been keeping going. I have been locked into one type of work so far which is hard to get into at this time of the year
