Friends don't let friends adult alone.
Be intentional about your friendships -- it takes effort to maintain them by both parties.
Grief that comes from the loss of a job takes shape in many forms that affect not only the person let go, but also those who left behind.
When you can lead the lifestyle you want and support your happiness, that's success.
A lot of good can come from losing your job; it just depends on what you do and your attitude. It can be entrepreneurial fuel, because you can get more creative with the extra time you have.
