A couple of my friends were made redundant recently. They are now unemployed. No one wants to be unemployed especially now during a pandemic. When I asked how they were feeling, they said they were ok. They could have been saying this for my benefit but it seemed to me that they were genuine in their answer. They weren’t worried. They werent frantic. They felt relieved.

But how? Why?
