14 - work doesn't define me!
Solid read. I love reading other peoples perspective on burnout. It is indeed fascinating. When you mentioned how as we age, we tend to stop carving out time for creativity as it gets drowned out by work or other life responsibilities. Very, very true. Thanks for sharing.
Feel this 100, thank you for continuing to share your journey & healing process. The book "The Artist's Way" has been a huge part of my creative recovery after severe (and recurring) career burnouts. Gotta say I've never met a human without a creative side, though sometimes it takes a little digging. My fav question to ask someone is "what's your outlet?". I'm often delighted and surprised by the answers.
