Is it just me, or does anyone else feel that they over-identify with their job?

 I've been following this Harry and Meghan situation and imagining what it must be like to have your whole identity removed. For Meghan, she gets to go back to being an actor now. I wonder if she felt like her true character  had been excised like an infected appendix when she had to, briefly, quench that part of herself.

If I had to quit being a writer tomorrow, what would I be? If you had to quit your job, would your identity take a hit?
