    #59: Kendra Patterson (INFP) on how embracing her creative nature has helped her move through burnout

    #59: Kendra Patterson (INFP) on how embracing her creative nature has helped her move through burnout

    My conversation partner this week is Kendra Patterson (INFP).  

    In Kendra's own words: 

    "I am a writer, podcaster, and creativity coach with a background in social science research. I coach other creatives, sensitive intuitives, and late bloomers who are trying to create lives that feel purpose-driven and satisfying at a deep level. I'm currently working on a research project on living life experimentally rather than conceptually, and why this may be a better way to approach life for creative late bloomers struggling to feel like they are fulfilling their potential."   

    --

    Some of the things we talk about:  

    - Experiencing 'whole-life' burnout, and how this added context to Kendra's experience of depression & anxiety 

    - Why conventional therapy doesn't seem to work for us, and the conclusions that Kendra and I have drawn about this  

    - On money: living frugally whilst on the creative path, vs peers who are hitting conventional, societal milestones  

    - When Kendra knew that the conventional path wasn't for her, and moving out of burnout, depression & anxiety  

    - Experimental vs conceptual types, & being a "late (repeat) bloomer"  

    - Why Kendra's "dark night of the soul" was exactly what she needed to experience  

    - Testing as an INFJ, but identifying as an INFP (being "on the cusp")

Jas is exceptional

If you’re an INFP or intuitive/sensitive creator, you’ve found a wonderful spot to feel connected. Jas shines a light on the beauty and uniqueness of being an INF, how to show up to be our best selves and keep moving in our creative practices even when times are difficult. He honestly feels like a friend afar. I always feel seen and centered and uplifted after listening to his podcast. Thanks, Jas!

A place to call home

I can’t thank Jas enough for creating the INF Club! I’m an INFJ and I’ve truly felt like I’ve found my tribe after a lifetime of feeling so different. Give this show a listen. You won’t regret it!
