The piece about holding onto identity in regards to employment really struck home for me! I've recently just lost my job in a field that I sort of fell into and stuck with even though it never was something I felt passionate about. I know I'm ready for a change, I'm just struggling with letting go and moving forward. Thank you for posting this gentle reminder!

It’s hard to adjust when the change wasn’t your choice. I hope you make some lemonade from those lemons!

I can relate to this. I have found it challenging to find employment in an industry that I have been in for many years. I am searching for the right path now. I have asked myself, I am I getting in my own way? Am I being lead someplace else, and fighting it? I have yet to get an answer.

Well maybe you will have the story of, "I worked hard in the industry for a long time before finally getting (creating!) the opportunity that was perfect for me." Or maybe you keep investing your time in when you would be better to take the path. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/burnout-sunk-cost-fallacy-audrey-batterham/ Where in your life are you feeling growth or flow? Or at least excited about the possibility if you just lean into it a bit more?
