What to do when it's time to go

Cathy Burke: What to do when it's time to go
Cathy Burke: What to do when it's time to go

It doesn’t have to be about negative stuff. For me, I had left The Hunger Project through my own choice, and I was proud of what I’d accomplished. So at first moving on was a breeze.

Subconsciously I had these stories running through my brain, like ‘nothing else I did could possibly be as great as what I’d done!’ (I mean – I was a part of ending hunger!) ‘Would I ever do work that meaningful?'
