Did I really get laid off due to funds?

I was just laid off today and was told they’re eliminating my position.

I think it’s kind of funny how they decide to do that after I’ve managed to fill all their shift openings during the crisis in staffing…which was very hard to convince people because pay was kind of low. But they recently passed something to increase pay for our clinical social workers since we are a mental health facility. So my position seemed to be gone after I filled 90% of their openings and after they increased pay but eliminated my job.

I’m a bit sad but more so relieved actually. Now I don’t have to explain to places why I quit and have an excuse. I hated one of the senior managers whom treated me like crap. I also can look into maybe learning about starting my own business on the side like my sister and parents.

But I can’t help but think was it just me eliminated? Was it really due to funds or because they didn’t like me? Boss told me to use him as a reference. I think I’ll rest a week of fun before putting out my resume. I’m lucky to be able to work for my parents at the blink of an eye.
