Do you ever feel uneasy with the state of your life? Do you question who you’ve become and why you’re not feeling inspired by what used to light you up?
Sara Kuburic, creator of @millennial.therapist – where she has more than 1.5 million followers – is an existential psychotherapist who specialises in helping people seeking change to live authentic, free, and meaningful lives.
Born in Yugoslavia and raised in Canada, Sara’s interest in psychology came from her personal experience living through wars, navigating complex relationships and continually learning what it means to be human.
In her first book, It’s On Me, Sara helps us identify self-loss: that feeling of being estranged or disconnected from ourselves, so we can answer the big questions about who we are and how to live in line with our core values.
On the latest episode of our UNDISTRACTED podcast, Sara shared her own story of self-loss and how a mid-air panic attack became the catalyst for a whole-of-life reevaluation.
“I realised I was going home to the life I didn’t want and my body was like, ‘you need to do something about it’,” Sara said.
“As I was fastening my seatbelt I got a panic attack, and I don’t remember fully how I got off the flight.
“I lost function of my arms and my speech – it was a really scary experience – but I think it just showed how much my body was trying to communicate and stop me living a life of self-loss.”
