But it's not really what I thought. I think slowly and steadily it is coming this way too, I mean in the industry here.
For the first time today, I actually knew of people who were laid off. It's funny how we slip into this comfort zone thinking we will be in our familiar surroundings with the same kind of people for good. Until something like this happens and people we knew have to leave. There is a feeling of guilt sometimes for having developed impressions of them and sharing it over a good laugh with people we know.
And then suddenly all you remember is how good this person was and forget the rest.
I was asking myself as to why we always need to wait for this moment to realise the good that was, moments when it's time to bid adieu. Guess life would be too perfect if we always saw the good ya and I guess I should be happy with the fact that we even feel that way at the end and correct ourselves. At least we did and therein I find some comfort. :)
Speaking of change, whenever I have considered embarking on one, these words have helped me tremendously:
"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." - Alan Cohen
