There can also be a sense of failure, of not being good enough. You may think ‘why me and not X’, ‘I’m better at my job than Y is, but they got to stay’, ‘I thought the bosses liked me. Valued me’.
You can also start to believe that no one will want to employ you, that you will never find another job. This can really affect your mood, and your sense of purpose and self-belief.
