Happiness Circle #04: Who am I without my job?


Who am I without my job?

Everytime we meet someone, we usually begin our introduction with "Hi, I am (name) and I work as a (occupation)." Most of our identity is shaped by our occupation. But is that really who we are at the core?

If you were to remove your job title from your introductions, if you are not a developer, a teacher, a community manager, whatever work you might be doing; without this in your life, who are you?

In our fourth session of the Happiness Circle, we gather to discover ourselves as a human begin. What defines us? What doesn't? We try to figure out what truly matters to us, our values, and who we are at the our core if we were to strip away our material possessions, our careers, our habits.

What is Happiness Circle?

Happiness Circle was borne out of the experiences that the founders went through in their own lives. After experiencing burnout from their work life, they found that by putting a pause on life - actively pursuing reflection times, scaling back on technology use, stepping away from the rat race, running towards their problems instead of away from them - they emerged with a better understanding of themselves.

At Happiness Circle sessions, we put a conscious pause on the rat race that we run on a day-to-day basis and spend two hours discussing and contemplating issues in our lives. It is a safe space for people who want to embrace curiosity, are willing to stretch, and want to be part of a community that works towards a life of purpose, who are ready to take action. We meet on the first Friday of every month.
