I just got laid off today, and I feel horrible. The nonprofit I was working for has been having trouble with funding for quite a while, and I happened to be the last one hired. I know I will be missed–both of my supervisors were crying as they told me the news–but I am so freaked out about my financial situation.
With only six months of work under my belt, I have no savings. There were a lot of start-up costs with my job (I even had to get a fancy phone for it–which, of course, I no longer need), my sister just got married and my boyfriend (who was my roommate) had to move for a job–so I have no idea how this is going to work. I feel broken, lost and numb all at the same time. Where do I go from here?
