This is a such a thoroughly written article about burnout with the what, how, when it happens and then the ways to get oneself back on track. Especially adding a touch of your own experiences around it ๐Ÿ‘

I resonated with it instantly and had a mini flashback to the time I was in a similar stage a decade ago due to lot of professional/personal mishaps. Recovery as you said correctly, is not overnight and takes time.

Few things I learnt thereon were,

  • It's natural to have this happen, suppression makes it worse.
  • Getting timely care (self and/or from people around you) and help is key.
  • Corollary - One can get only so much help as there are some battles one has to fight only on their own. Sooner this realisation, faster the recovery.
  • Go for small atomic goals/wins, they'll build up towards a big victory.

Lastly never lose belief, a miracle is always around the corner ๐Ÿ˜„

Thanks for the kind words Vinay! ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I truly appreciate it!

I wholeheartedly agree! Keeping things bottled up inside does not help at all! Emotions need to be addressed and managed, not shrugged off like they don't matter.

Thanks so much for reading this blog and for taking the time to share your experience and tips with us! ๐Ÿ˜Š Take good care of yourself ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
