Daily Dilemma: My Dad Fired Me

Dear Rebecca and Burns,

During the beginning of the pandemic, I lost my job due to budget cuts and was out of work for a few months. Thankfully, my dad offered me a job at his company working in his department. However, a few weeks ago, he had to let me go because performance expectations weren’t being met. I’m devastated and frankly, it’s affected my relationship with him ever since.

What should I do?
