Turning ‘being adrift’ into an adventure: Part 1

Turning ‘being adrift’ into an adventure: Part 1

Community Rating

The 'pandemic of 2020' has disrupted our personal and work lives. For some, this disruption has been to be cut adrift, to be untethered, from an organisation or employment. So much daily structure, personal identity, and validation comes from having a job. To be adrift is functionally unsettling:  routines are lost; skills are not used; and activities remain undone. It's emotionally destabilising: there's a shame element to say "I'm unemployed", is if my value ceased when nobody nor an organisational identity, is seeing and utilising the value I have to contribute.  In being adrift, it's also to lose touch with resources and opportunities to gain personal value and contribute value. You are lost in limbo. Actually, that's just one perspective.
