For many professionals around the world, being employed is closely associated with a sense of self, worth, and being a productive member of our communities. As a result, when someone loses a job, it threatens all of these core values they associate with it.

Your identity is more than just your job.

Don't let a job loss stigmatize you and curb who you are as a person. You still have the traits and skills that make you uniquely you, which is your most prized possession. Uncouple your moral worth from your employment. When you do so, you end up thriving on the job no matter where you work or where you live.
