5 Signs You Might Have Emotional Burnout

Get notifications
I am so glad I saw this article on Bright Side and I cant wait to share it w/my Dr.

In 1996 I lost the brother I was closest to (out of 7), two years later I lost my husband of 25 yrs. 3 months later we lost his brother. And the list goes on until I had lost 7 men in immedtient family in 4 short years. Talk about devastated!

Needless to say, after 20 some years everyone is wondering when will I "get it together" again and be the vibrant, enerzied, funny woman like I once was.

I have wondered this myself. Only this morning I wondered if I was done feeling sorry for my losses,... and myself?

One thing I do know is I can put a name on what Im feeling and hopefully work my way out of my depression & anxiety. Im looking forward to the information I find on Emotional Stress.

Maybe you shouldn't focus so much on trying to be like you were, and instead try to find a new you. I understand it's hard of course.. losing someone close to you is always a struggle.

I'm not really the best at giving this kind of advice but what helped for me was thinking to myself "would those people want me to live like i am now? sad and no goal" (not talking about you, this was how I lived) and this made me stronger and I wanted to move on :)

I struggled hard when I was in my 5th year of high school, I got really tired and wanted to finish it but had no energy left to complete the whole year. I took a year break to re think what I wanted to do in my life, changed the course and then I finally found what I wanted to do and now I am going for my master degree

I'm happy that you found something that you are interested in, school can be a real struggle when you do something that you don't like doing

I wanted to quit but I realized how important a degree is so I went back
