Burnout is something we notice or not, but even if we notice it we are not always able to call it burnout.
“Sometimes I feel like I am not focused enough, I have too much on my head, I am getting anxious, and then all sorts of fears come to me.
I am not good enough.”
Those were my thoughts jotted down back in May 2013.
I should have been happy.
I was about to marry a guy I love ❤️
I had a good job. ??
I was fit and had a healthy back.
But I sometimes felt a bit empty.
– That is ok
– That is normal
– I feel the same
– you have an excellent life others have worse
Friend and family said
And I listened
But I couldn’t stop thinking that I am not in the right place in my life. That something is odd. Something is not going ok.
Back then, I was taking everything personally. I wanted to change jobs but achieved nothing and get bad about myself. I wanted to pass some accounting exams, and I kept on failing. Did I start taking why? What is happening? Why me? Why can’t I be successful?
I wore black sweatpants to the office as I didn’t feel like wearing something excellent. I put on some weight as I was stress eating all the time. I felt bored with my work and life. I lost focus. Nothing was fun for me.
But I kept my face up high and smiled.
I did not realise back then that I was about to hit my first ever burnout.
I lost the job, but I found a new one and took a challenge to get to started an MBA because I should not give myself more responsibility and simply forget about what I felt.
But IT WAS NOT A GOOD THING TO DO
