Something pretty unexpected happened during the third month of my unemployment. Amazingly, my anxieties and stress about money, which were always in the background ready to jump to the fore, faded to a quiet murmur. I started to become beyond money.
At least for now.
And when I say beyond money, I mean that money no longer engenders in me the negative emotions as it did in the past. Instead, it allows me to conceive and achieve my goals.
I’m definitely not the most self-aware person. I’m just not in touch with my feelings – something which my wife tells me often. So I’m starting a series to reflect on what I’m going through post-termination.
