Detangling my identity from my career

My career is not my identity. That’s a crisis I had to face during this, as several opportunities I had hanging in the balance were obliterated due to COVID-19. It was scary for a moment, as I hung so much of my self-esteem and sense of self-worth on my career. But my identity, as it turns out, is how I love people, and care for people, and make people laugh. And my career has nothing to do with that.
