So sorry to hear that! My dad is a graphic artist so I know it can be tough but I also know there are jobs out there! Hang in there! I would suggest you take a few days and really, truly relax! Stop worrying about the fact that you’re not busy right now! You said yourself that you have always been busy with school or work! All I’m hearing you saying now is that you finally have a few days to breathe!!! I know that’s hard because you get so used to being busy but try it! Take a deep breath, take a bath, go to the gym, take some time to volunteer, work on knocking out some of the more time intensive bits of wedding planning! And when youre done, pull yourself together, get out there and kick some butt finding another job! You can do this girl!!!

So sorry to hear that!  I was unemployed for a long time before I went back to work in August.  It felt weird to be without a job for so long.  I began volunteering at my church.  I never thought I could do what I do there before I became unemployed.  I started organizing things, and joined committees and really had a voice.  I love it!  I do like to be busy myself, so this was good.  Is there something you enjoy that you can get involved in?  Animals, children, elderly, environmental?  Or, take a class for an activity?  I hope for the best for you.

@DarlingClementine:  I’m so sorry! I know how frustrating it can be, especially if you’re not used to just being at home. First and foremost–do not give up hope! Even if you get rejections, know that there will be a new job out there for you. Second, fill your days–which it sounds like you’ll be doing. Don’t feel bad about splurging a little on yourself if you’re feeling down, too, like a manicure or lunch out. 

I’m sure you will find a new job soon especially in your field! Apply for everything in your field, even if you don’t think you’re qualified because you never know. Hugs and best of luck! 🙂

I was made redundant twice in quick succession in but then set up my own business.  I’m doing very well and have never looked back.
