Identifying myself

When a part of your identity is wrapped up in what you do for a living and you lose it, it leaves you with a huge sense of loss and a bit of an identity crisis.
Who am I now?
Well you are still you. May take you a while to realize it. Just because you aren’t doing what you love doesn’t take away the part of you that is that.
I’m a dairy farmer with no cows. A dairy farmer is part of who I am. And while I miss the farm life involving the cows it doesn’t change the fact that I’m a farmer. I may end up with a job in the city. So what? Deep in my heart I’m a dairy farmer…. And one day I will be again!
