Your job didn't define you. YOu defined yourself in terms of your job. You worked hard, too hard, and now you don't know what to do with yourself. Give it time. It's still pretty fresh. Try to think of who you ARE and not who you were when you had the job. Dad, husband, friend. Good, caring, giving, strong, supportive, smart, good-looking........Need I say more?
