Being laid off...

It's not fun, and it's happening to more and more people everyday. I've been laid off two times, both within the last year. And to be honest, even though these situations had nothing to do with my personal performance... I feel somewhat shameful about it.

I know it's silly to feel this way, however in general conversation, I usually try to avoid the term "laid off" at all costs. Perhaps I feel embarrassed. I mean, if my position were really THAT important it never would have been eliminated, right? Regardless, it's an issue for me, and I'm trying to figure out if other people feel the same way.
