When.... and "if" the Stock Chasers ever walk a mile in our shoes?... then I'll start taking their comments seriously.
In the meantime I say to ANY downsized employees, past or present, don't allow yourself to be embarrassed by ignorant, judgemental, heartless jackasses.
Downsizing is happening all over the U.S., so remember, it doesn't mean there's something wrong with you or your work.
On the other hand, don't let hard times discourage and frustrate you and make your soul bitter. Forgive! It takes a load off your heart and mind. Take care of you physical health, and look to better days. God is good, and he is a just God.
