I am currently between lives. In the best way possible. So it stunned me when I found out that changing careers would bring about a bit of a catharsis.
There are a lot of cliches being thrown at me about endings, beginnings, and letting go. I want to shake the people and say,
I may be just a number to you, a cog in the wheel, a person who took up space, but this was my life.
Or more correctly, my identity.
Change is a Process
This process of unraveling has helped me understand that, in the end, it is the person moving on who has wrapped their identity in their title, their paycheck, their perception of their own value.
