Former PR agency guy here – different boat, same shit. I was laid off at the end of January and the first thought that came to mind was “well, at least I don’t have to do my timesheet next week.”

After the initial shock wore off I realized it was a blessing to be let go. The stress of unemployment + lack of health insurance + a friggin’ pandemic was STILL not nearly as bad as the dread I felt waking up every morning at my old job.
