I’ve been struggling lately especially in the wake of covid and losing all my work.
But I’m reminded of the words of Will Storr on the Freelancer Economy:
“When an economy like this becomes a part of who we are, it can be dangerous. It means we tend to judge people who actually need help harshly – and judge ourselves harshly when we need it. We decide we’re failures. We’re losers in the game. And if wee tend towards perfectionism, and are more sensitive to signals of failure in our environment, we risk the self becoming unstable, bringing thoughts of suicide and self-harm.”
It’s good to remind ourselves it’s a construct.
