Ep 12 | Burnout, Belonging and the Art of Reinvention with Kay Fabella

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and a topic that is very dear to our guest Kay Fabella. Kay joins us on the podcast to talk about burnout and how her diagnosis of depression led her on a path of reinvention. Part of her refresh has been moving to Spain, starting an online business, and creating boundaries to protect her mental health. Reinvention is a life long process and one that can leave you feeling isolated and lonely when those around you don’t understand the unconventional path you’re on. Listen in as Kay shares her tips to find belonging and feel less alone.

  1. It was really interesting to hear how Kay revelled in trying new ways to express herself in Spanish… This has been a major obstacle for me, basically I have been trying to be the same person as before, and frustrated that I can’t be. I think now, part of learning a new language is accepting that you’re going to become a different person.

      Thank you so much for listening! Yes, I struggle with that too. I think you’re right, we need to accept who we are in our non-native language, it’s another version of ourselves. Best of luck learning!
