Doesn't work. It's still your train of thoughts.
Having tried compartmentalisation, I can say it did not work then. The first six months of bschool, I ignored my grad identity, my College friends, my passions.
I got burnt out.
Integration too did not work. It led to heartbreak, recalling the inertia which had propelled me elsewhere, nostalgia.
A new identity, belonging to a new community, creating new events, newsletters, friends.
Now that helped. And is repeatedly working.
As I view another burnt out case reviving himself, clamped down memories, relationships I hope and pray for peace.
