HAVE YOU LOST YOUR SOURCE OF INCOME?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Yes! I know what it is like to be out of a job and with empty pockets. And being in a situation like that is TOUGH and STRESSFUL! I have been through it so I know what it is like especially after experiencing feelings of anger, depression, self-doubt and uncertainty. IT WAS A VERY CHALLENGING TIME IN MY LIFE. However, there are some things you can do to help alleviate the situation. Here are some of the things I did to help me move forward after losing my source of income:
1. Take care of yourself. Prioritize self-care! When I had just lost my job, I was very depressed and all I wanted to do was sleep for the entire day. I was not eating so I had no energy to do anything but that. When I got out of that phase and started to eat right and exercise, it helped me to feel much better.
3. Find a hustle. You need to find a way to generate some kind of income. NOW IS THE TIME TO PUT YOUR PRIDE ASIDE. One thing I have always learned and currently live by, is to ALWAYS HAVE A SECOND SOURCE OF INCOME. Let us be real, can you comfortably live in Dominica with one source of income? If you can, do you have a good savings under your name? Most times you have to sacrifice one for the other. Now is the perfect time to find another source of income while you are out of a job. You should research and try out different things that can make extra money for you!
