I understand how you feel like you're being punished. Like you, I was doing a good job where I worked before. You just have to keep telling yourself that it's because of the economy, which also led to my layoff.
I want to encourage you, though, by saying that you were EXACTLY where you were supposed to be.
God has a plan for every single person's life, and nothing happens without His allowing it. A lot of people would get mad at that statement, but for me, it's comforting to know that there is a "grand plan."
I'll venture to bet that you developed unique skills at each job you've held. You've touched many lives and been touched by many as well.
There's no telling how something you said to someone or maybe a hug you gave caused them to smile.
Who knows what's in store next. There's no guarantee that it will be better.
What you can be sure of is that you'll be EXACTLY where you're supposed to be...for the time being.
Have a good, long cry, eat a pile of your favorite food, and do something mindless for a day.
Then, file for unemployment and get busy looking for a job. You're going to be just fine.
