Fear after being laid off

I have been living in fear since being laid off recently.

Unconsciously, it has been over a month already.

On the afternoon of the 9th of last month, I was informed that I was being optimized without any warning. The reason was that the project team's funding was cut in half, and so were the people. It was a sad moment to recall. Since leaving Xiaohongshu, I chose to take a pay cut and join a company I liked to work on artistic products. I thought I could continue to work there and create fun products with everyone, but in the end, I was just a pawn. Unfortunately, I was optimized after only a year. I was at a loss for a while, experiencing acute anxiety for two days. Perhaps it was the first time in my life being laid off, even though the reason was not me, it still dealt a huge blow to me. I felt like I was abandoned. Even now, I am still unable to get out of the shadow of being laid off. Now that I have joined a new company, I am still worried about the risk of being laid off. Just one layoff caused me so much pain, I dare not think about how it would be if it were a breakup. This is also one of the reasons why I have been afraid of falling in love. Being pessimistic, I never have full confidence in my future.

It has been three weeks since I joined the new company. During these three weeks, I have almost gone all in on the product I am currently working on, which is an open-source RSS reader that we aim to make the most user-friendly. Your support is welcome. In the near future, I will also take some time to summarize some technical details. Additionally, I have been exploring solutions for web app local-first recently, hoping to implement it in a product someday.
