"I still remember that exact moment when my boss told our team we were under a threat of being fired. She probably kept on talking - but I couldn’t hear anymore. She probably continued with her presentation - but I couldn’t see either.
The only thought in my head was: this can NOT be happening. I’m a good worker. I can’t believe I’m getting FIRED.
That shock. The insecurity. The feeling of being let down and being worth of nothing...
10 years after and looking back I wish I could go back to that moment and tell myself: you know nothing girl Just calm down and hold on to your hat as the adventure towards your real dream jobs has just began."
