I feel you! I’ve been telling people about the 5 stages of grief in relation to this. I feel weirdly lucky I started this loss of identity process 2 years ago, it takes time to figure it out but it comes. You’ll come back with a whole new skill set and level of resilience and build something wonderful from it; maybe with a kinder level of effort too. Love this piece Gillian Sisley thank you!
