I just told my friend and colleague that she is being let go. 

She looked panic stricken but said that she knew something was going on. 

There were tears from both of us. 

She is trying to be all upbeat, supportive and yet her face is riddled with pain, shock and fear. 

I felt like I was going to have a heart attack telling her. Now, I am calm and feel ... well, what you would expect.

I must believe good things will come. I must.  



  1. I'm so sorry that you had to tell your friend such bad news. But, I am sure that there are good things on the horizon for both of you!

  2. Oh wow. So tough. This whole lay off business stinks. Stick with those that have supported you and do the same for them. Sorry it's so damn hard.
