I hadn’t talked to anyone about my financial troubles since they began, my close family didn’t even know that I’d lost my job. So when this woman asked how I was doing, it all just came pouring out.
All of the frustrations, stress, worry, sleepless nights and everything else, all in one big long rambling rant. She just stood there, nodding her head and listening sympathetically. Looking back now, she must have the patience of a saint because she didn’t seem phased at all!
When I had finished she looked me directly in the eyes and said, ‘I totally understand what you are going through. I went through almost exactly the same thing myself just six months ago’.
It turns out that she had also been let go from her job, struggled to find a new one and had hit rock bottom financially with bills piling up.
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing!
How had I never heard of this before?!? She told me that are millions of businesses hiring for these positions right now, I started to get really excited and asked her a barrage of questions.
