Such a depressing thing to do, but it can be a step in the right direction.  You never know what might be out there, it could be better than what you had before.  Have you started looking for a new job yet?

I know when I lost a job earlier this year that I was in a panic to find a new one and started when I thought my job might be in trouble. After losing it and still not having a new one lined up right away, getting into sending resumes, having phone screens, etc. was part of the way I dealt with the blow of having lost the job. I needed to just keep busy so as to not be so depressed.

It might take longer than anyone would want to find a new job, but really getting into looking for a new position is better, in my opinion, than taking too long to grieve the loss of the former job.
