The most brutal but yet the most helpful of quotes at this time.

Having spoken and interviewed around 15 people in the last few weeks about their concerns, mostly to do with career moves, redundancy and what to do next here is a short list of things you can think about and the mindset to adapt. There are huge financial and emotional pressures on many people. That is obvious, and I am not immune to such pressures. There are things you can do to mitigate the situation and much of it involves knowing the potential paths that are opening to you. If you adapt an opportunity mindset and take some control of the things you can it should help you feel more in charge of the constantly evolving situation and uncertainty. One thing to remember always is you are doing the best you can and not to beat yourself up about things that have nothing to do with your ability or value to your family or the wider world. You can still be a amazing human being without a job ! All change is difficult and if it is difficult it actually means you are moving into growth.
