Sometimes it disguises itself as stress eating, sleep deprivation, disinterest in work, overspending or feeling so exhausted even after a full eight hours of sleep.
Yes, I am talking to you – the overachiever. It hurts you I know but you like it. You want using that pain to fuel your success. But, right now, you can’t take it. It is just too much to handle.
You might have questions like What might go wrong after all the right things you tried to do? Why are you feeling this way even if you have given all your best? You keep delivering unfinished half-hearted work, you literally drag yourself out of the bed. You think so little of yourself and you harass yourself with demeaning words. This, my dear friend, is called a burnout. You are in a state of chronic stress that might lead to physical and emotional exhaustion. Sometimes even detachment from relationships and feeling of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.
