Thank you for your session this morning .
I don’t I feel comfortable with speaking about myself or how I feel.
When you have been working for over 25 years, and all of a sudden you are made redundant from a job you’ve been doing since leaving school it’s a blow to your self-esteem and confidence. Having to start all over again , meeting new people is daunting. It’s been 9 years since being made redundant, and the feeling hasn’t left me. I’ve had contract work but it’s not the same. As I said before, there’s nowhere to go and no one to speak to. Everything is over the internet! No human contact. Is there an organisation out there who can help people who are in the 50-60 age group get back on the employment ladder? The Job Centre funded by the government is a waste of time, they think everyone wants to sponge and claim benefits. It just feels like we are the forgotten generation.
Speaking to you this morning has helped me to re-evaluate things currently going on in my life and what I need to think about. I must say, I was taken aback by you talking about the colours yellow, white and orange, to think I have those colours in my front room, it was comforting to know that I’m not surrounded by negativity. We go through life thinking everything is okay, and It will all come good in the end, but If you don’t help yourself nothing will change.
Writing down a list of things you wish to achieve is a great idea and it works!
I look forward to speaking to you again.
