Settling Your Nerves After Experiencing A Traumautic Exit From Work

By David S. Chang


Life can move in directions that we had no chance of predicting. This can often leave us completely stunned and if a traumatic experience, the recovery process can take up to years. After losing a job you may recover financially rather quickly, but the mental effects can last longer. Here are some ways where you can deal more effectively with a traumatic experience.

Find Closure

There may be events that can bring back past memories that are hurtful. The first step is to find closure and be able to move one. This means letting go finding complete acceptance of what has happened. Find ways to honor the transition away from what’s finished to something new. In other words, closure describes the ability to go beyond limitations to find unlimited possibilities.

Take Action

It is easy to play the victim. Sometimes the best defense is a good offense. If you were injured in an accident and it has impacted your life, it may be easy to fall into a slump. Instead, you may want to find personal injury lawyers with a proven record of success to take action and claim any financial compensation you deserve.

Return To Work

When returning to work, you may find yourself worried about how you’re to manage yourself well. It’s only natural to feel some nerves when moving from one environment to another, especially if your last memories of a specific environment are difficult.

We would recommend making your situation perfectly clear to your new or resumed employer, letting them know your medication needs, if you need to start on a part-time basis, what disability concessions must be made for you, or what triggers you might have, such as being in a too high-stress environment. This way you can help to curate your experience coming back. A worthwhile boss will take this into consideration, and let you know if they can handle your needs appropriately.

Take A Different Approach

If your injury was first experienced in a factory setting, it could be that opting for a different route could help you make use of other skills you have while helping you avoid the dangerous environment for a time. Remote working from home can help you dip your toe back in the corporate pool (such as freelancing online), or moving to a new industry can help you start fresh while making new connections. Sometimes, a chance of pace can help you forget how life used to be as you build on your new foundations.

With this advice, we hope you can return to work or settle your nerves appropriately, as no one deserves to have a traumatic exit haunt them forever.
