Introduction:It is not often that a person wants get fired. Job loss is often stressful, but sometimes getting fired can have its advantages. Let us look at the benefits and advantages of unexpected job loss.
So many people work a 40 hour (or more) week and have no time left for themselves, their family, or home projects. Think of getting fired as a mini-vacation; a chance to get things done at home that have been on the back burner while you have been working.
Chances are if you were fired there may have been stress at your work place prior to your dismissal. If you can look past any anger of being terminated, you should try to appreciate having a moment where you do not have to worry about the backstabbers and brown-nosers at work.
I am in Canada so this may not be true around the world, but where I am even if you are fired you might be eligible for employment insurance (EI). You have to apply for this and depending on why you were fired you may get weekly payments from the government.
They might even force your employer to pay severance pay if it was not given. Basically they are looking to see if the reason you were fired was not actually on the up and up (such as when an employer tries to get you to quit for months and is unsuccessful and eventually come up with a lame reason to fire you).
For sure sometimes a person might be fired from a job they love but typically this is not always the case. Getting fired is the motivation you need to find a better job because possibly you were stuck in a rut at the job you were at.
Sometimes a job loss is an opportunity for big change, such as making a move to another city or area.
Sometime it makes you realize what really matters in life and perhaps you may make different choices about the next type of job you take.
Maybe it motivates you to go back to school.
For sure I do not wish job loss on anyone, and I know it can be stressful, but hopefully a person will be able to find a better path in life and look back and realize that the job loss was really a benefit.
