Sometimes in companies, it is not about firing others or what they say as they leave. I agree that there are times when people need to part ways and its seems unfair that after persons have contributed their skills and experience without additional intense training to improve themselves, they are asked to leave. I know that in a start up persons watch costs and there are lots of demands on time and skills and it is difficult to move away to learn stuff especially on company time. However that is one of the challenging things that we need to do.
Some other things that we need to do include:
- Have adequate savings. If you have none, start. Take some of the funds which you have been paying down elsewhere and save it. There are places where the credit card is not accepted.
- Try to develop hobbies. They make a difference in your mental health.
- Understand your strengths! They are what will take you through the tough times
