It’s easy for us to intertwine our self-worth with our jobs. After all, we spend so much time and energy devoted to our work. After a while, it might feel like our personality and sense of self are dissolving in our work personality.

Then, reclaim work as a way to experiment and practice that identify as you continue to discover it. Your identity will be created through practice and patience.
