Oh Steve, I’m so sorry this has happened. I think it’s great that you are processing by writing this down.
You know me, always a Pollyanna…I believe that this could be a new beginning for you. You have so many skills and so much experience! I hope you can think about what you really want to do with the rest of your “wild and precious life” (to quote Mary Oliver) and find a job that fits into your true life purpose.
I’d be happy to help you with your resume and cover letter, or provide any other support I can. And keep writing! It’s good for the soul!
