Why I Was Fired
Well, in my case It wasn't a firing so much, but a threat of being fired if I did not resign. It began many years ago while I was working in a bank. It was the first time I felt an energy kind of pull me back as though to protect me from going into the meeting in the first place. I failed to listen to my own intuition and in I went. There I was, sitting and stressed and also unwell. A previous bullying act had caused me serious health problems and I kept to my else for fear of losing my job back then. This time it was an email. I was to resign because of it, even though I wanted to apologise and it wasn't all my doing
What Being Fired Has Been Like
It felt like someone had fired a gun at the back of my head, but instead of the bullet it was a force that would paralyze me emotionally, mentally and physically for years later. A treatment that washed away all my confidence and self worth. It took from me everything of value. I never did get back that person or everything I lost afterwards, especially finances. I walked out of the meeting very pale, as one co worker mentioned, and it would be years later when I learned I was suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome. I think I also had some kind of breakdown. I couldn't handle loud noises for a while and for the following four years it was like I had been sleeping in a coma. I took ages to come out of my ordeal and sadly ten years on unemployment followed. Fear, pain, losses, health issues all combined. It would have been better to have been shot dead and still today I wonder why this bank never did it, when it was able to get away with so much other stuff.
- Know the law and know your rights and if you don't come from a supportive family and are basically on your own chose your companies wisely. Don't go for pressurised jobs or where it's more of a family that look after their own kind, such as a culture type of industry. Speak little and watch your back. Also, know what kind of jobs are right for you and never, ever, cross a bank and leave the matter open or not closed properly, because from experience banks would find a way of getting you back.They had a field day with me as they continued to harass and monitor me and even stop many other employers from offering me work
