4. Don't lose control.

Most people can handle serious situations because they have successfully handled them in the past. If you have survived other major life events, you have developed coping skills which will help you in this situation. If, however, you are feeling that you may lose control and harm yourself or others, now is the time to ask for help. Go through your Human Resources department or use your own health care doctor for referrals regarding mental health issues and to help you navigate through the emotions of losing your job. It's OK to cry and process all of the negative feelings you'll have, but it's not OK to take it out on others you've worked with.

One way to not lose control is to have a PLAN!
