How to move past the anger and bitterness?

It's been several months now since I've been laid off from not one but both of my jobs. Stupid economy. I don't want to get into the details of what exactly transpired with each situation but I definitely feel it was unfair. I don't know how to let go of this anger I have over it. I keep rehasing it all in my head wondering if there was more I could have done to have saved my job.

I'm sorry you lost your jobs. It's hard not to continue to beat yourself up, but at some point you need to move past it. What's done is done, even if it's unfair. You need to focus your energy on finding a new job.
