Losing a job is one of life’s most stressful experiences. It’s normal to feel angry, hurt, or feel anxious about what the future holds. Job loss and unemployment involves a lot of change all at once, which can rock your sense of purpose and self-esteem. Job loss can have a profound effect on your emotional well-being and there is a typical cycle that most people experience when they go through the loss of a job. It includes denial, anger, frustration and eventually adaption. While the stress can seem overwhelming, there are many things you can do to take control of the situation, maintain your spirits and come out of this difficult period stronger, more resilient and with a renewed sense of purpose.Unemployment can be hard to handle. But dealing with it in the right way isn’t just essential. It is also the first step to getting back on track. To help you put a positive spin on the situation, Aspirare provides you with some steps that will help you cope with the stress of losing a job:

Learn from it
At first, consider what you can do to upgrade your skills. There are a number of courses out there which could help you expand your skill set, adding another string to your bow and will help ensure you are indispensable.

Control your feelings
What comes after losing a job? Denial, stress, guilt, anger, sadness? Although, we know we can’t control these feelings, we can make sure that these feelings are not influencing our attitude in an unproductive way. Misdirected self-improvement can often be nothing but a distraction.

Stay Positive
You should focus on learning, growing and making goals for the future. Your current job status doesn’t define you and a pessimistic mindset will only make things worse. Employers are attracted to candidates who see things in a good light, who are able to find solutions to the problems and can make the best out of a bad situation, so this will be the best time to show them you can do anything.
