I am not typically one for a pity party but tonight will be different.
I moved to a city over 2 hours from the one I had been living in the for the past 10 years to be with my fiance. We were supposed to be marred in June but for tons of reasons, did not and I broke off the engagement.
Before moving here, I was able to secure a job… wasn’t a job that I really liked but it was something to get me over here, you know? I was at my job in the new city for a little over a month before we called off the wedding so I felt “stuck” since it was just a filler position until I could find something in the industry I like. I moved out to my own place shortly thereafter to the neighboring city my job is actually in.
Well, today, I was fired from that job. They told me it didn’t have anything to do with my work performance and I wasn’t being “laid off”, but I was being fired. There’s a big long story, apparently, to go with it and I simply don’t have the energy to go into it. There may or may not be some legal questions I need to have answered. I brought up a few concerns yesterday and then today, at the end of the day, I was fired. It’s a big mess.
So, here I am. New city and literally do not know a soul other than now former co-workers (was never close with them) and my ex-fiance (haven’t spoken since we “officially” split several months ago). I have no job. I have no money. I am 3+ hours away from my nearest family member. I just started to get back to the dating scene. That, obvioulsy, will stop until I can secure a new job. I literally do not have any friends anymore other than the once a month “hi!” on Facebook.
This is just the pits. I don’t know what to do. I feel like a failure for so many reasons. I just… I don’t know what to do. All I’ve wanted my whole life is to be a wife, a mother, and have a quiet little job in a quiet little corner.
Obviously, I know what to do…. filing for unemployment, seeing if I can get any sort of temporary assistance, pound the pavement starting Monday.
I just don’t know what to do with anything else. I think I might go get my veil and put it on to feel pretty — I’m over the guy, it’s the situation that bothers me, if that makes sense. I had so many hopes and dreams just a few, short months ago. I never would’ve imagined I’d be in this position right now.
Thanks for listening.
