When you lose their job or learn that you are about to lose your job, you may experience a wide range of emotions. The reaction to this news can include sadness, anger, fear, numbness, and shame. Experiencing these emotions is normal.

Job loss, like any loss, means letting go of something valuable. Job loss is considered a major life event not unlike the death of a loved one, divorce, or serious injury. It's painful, shocking, and depressing. Don't be surprised if you go through all five stages of grief as defined by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, author of On Death and Dying:

4. Depression (I don't care anymore)
