Safety in a job

This is the truth I am realizing lately:

There is neither safety or security in a job.

I have been employed full-time for the past 8 years. In that time I have acquired many great skills. However, all my skills and education do not make me safe from downsizing. While I was in debt and getting myself into debt I took my employment for granted. I am embarrassed to admit this now. It is embarrassing because it shows my ungratefulness to my self and my employer at the time. I wish I could go back and tell my 20 year old self to not buy an expensive car, to not live in an expensive apartment, live within a budget, and never take my time or job for granted.

  1. You know, it's a really dim picture for the future. The crisis seems to be here to stay for a long time and the companies all around the world are downsizing. Seems like really troubled times came around. Sometimes I wonder whether to ask a legal specialist to protect me from the consequences of getting the ax. After all, you could get fired for being sick (like here: http://www.webponder.com/Can-I-be-fired-for-being-sick) This is a terrible world we live in!
