This is different than depression.
And I have been through depression when you don’t want any to do anything, other than sleep maybe.
With burnout you are just tired of doing stuff for people, or the things on your to-do list. I have spent the last year working on my blog, and the last two or so working on myself. There are so many things you should do with a blog, but I’m tired of doing the “right” things. I’m not sure that there is a “right ” way to improve yourself, but I am burned out on all the Self-help, Self-Care stuff.
I love my daughter, my husband, and outback pets. But, trying to keep up with them and maintain the house we live in gets old.
I think took so long for me to become a mom, I think the first few years of my daughter’s life was spent trying to prove that I was grateful. I just wanted to be super mom to prove that it wasn’t a fluke, or a mistake.
Three and a half years in and I think I finally get that to be a good mom does not mean you have to be perfect!
I am so tired of society period! If I could live on a ranch or something I never the middle of nowhere without internet or cable, I would love it. Or at least I think I would!
I am tired of all of he shootings, bombings, political crap and everything! I just don’t want to hear it!
I’m tired of all the crap on social media! Selling stuff (which I have done), political stuff, ranting, etc. It isn’t about keeping up with your friends and family anymore.
What to do?
Alright, what do I do? Well, if you’re like me, you drop everything you don’t absolutely have to do.
I am not doing the things I am “supposed to” do anymore.
When something comes up I am taking a step back and contemplating if it fits my schedule and my priorities.
Try not to be a people pleaser. For me this is a hard one! However, I try not to let the fact that saying no to someone might upset them be top priority.
