I just received notice that I'm getting laid off. This is not a surprise to me. The company I work for hasn't been doing that great, and my position felt increasingly superfluous over the last year. In some respects, I feel qnxoety and other unpleasant feelings, but in other ways, I feel good. At least fhis way I get severance pay, and I've felt a desire to move on anyway. It's almost like I'm liberated.
