I hope you can read this message and I apologize in advance because I’m not very good at cutting to the chase so maybe this message will be a bit long. In these days I have seen the speech you made in which you talked about how it feels when you lose your job and I agree with every single word. Like you, I also don’t like to tell people that I understand how they feel because each of us experiences life differently with different feelings and different ways of reacting.
I am one of those people you mentioned in your video, I lost my job because of the coronavirus and I felt lost, I started to wonder “and now how will I pay the rent of my house? will I be able to pay my bills or buy food? What’s gonna happen to my life?“. The first few weeks I felt depressed, I didn’t even want to get out of bed and start the day, I didn’t want to go back to looking for work and I didn’t want to eat or do any other activity. However I was lucky because I also had someone who loves me and who check on me every day. Thanks to this person I now feel a little better. I’m still so afraid for my future but I got up and decided to go back to life despite losing my job, because life is long and we are given so many opportunities and it’s up to us to seize them.
I hope that you too have been overwhelmed by hope and that you have enjoyed the small joys of life, while you wait for the bigger ones. I admire you a lot and I really appreciated your words, they comforted me in a difficult moment.
