Survival Guilt

I'm struggling a little with survival guilt. That's the best way I can think of to describe it.

We've had another round of layoffs at the company I work for, and I feel bad for the people who are now frantically looking for a job while I still get to sit at my cubicle.

I'm grateful for my job, particularly since I have a wife to support and the very chatty mouth of a little girl to feed, but that doesn't stop me from feeling sorry for those who have to hurriedly polish their resumes.

This kind of thing is ugly for everyone.

It's been pretty crappy, but me and my husband are going to be OK. He's got a good job and we can make it work if I don't find another job. I sure do miss working there with you guys.
