  1. Totally different industries, but I was laid off from the job I had for the previous seven years back in 2020 (nothing to do with vaccines or masks or whatever) and I was a little stunned, but when that wore off I felt a little adrift, but it was also the best thing for my mental health. While anxiety and panic attacks haven’t fully left my life they’re far more rare with the job I started earlier this year AND (part of the time) I have the time and energy to work on my own ventures as well. Who knew that losing one’s job could be so liberating!
