One of my dearest friends in the world right now has been unemployed since the first of the year (she’s a casualty of the newspaper crisis – one of many talented people that I know who have been targeted by cutbacks) and I can tell through her emails that she’s struggling mightily and I got to be honest – my heart is just aching for her.
I’m sure I’m not the only person out here who has friends who have been laid off. How are you guys helping out your friends? What do you say to them? Right now I try to email my friend on a daily basis, but I’m feeling bad because my work schedule is tight and I don’t know when I’m going to be able to physically see her. (She lives six hours away). I’m going to try to see her in a few weeks and take a weekend off for us to hang out, but I gotta be honest – that’s just one little island. I want to be there for my friend, but I don’t know what’s the best approach.
