Everyone keeps telling me how good my attitude is, and I do appreciate their encouragement. But the truth is that I am mortified at losing my job. I know my mom and dad are right when they say I'm not the first person to lose a job and that I won't be the last, but I'm not just anyone. I'm me! I'm the overachiever who has always defined herself by her career aspirations. It hurts a lot to have to let go of the idea of myself as a successful attorney. And who the hell am I if I'm not that person?
