Burn Out Is Real…

This is the worst I have felt in a very long time and it’s funny because just a few days ago I felt on top of the world. I am overeating unhealthy foods and sleeping ALOT. It just feels absolutely awful. It’s not depression, nope. It’s burn out, and I vouch to never allow myself to feel this way again.

The feeling of burn out literally shot me in the dark and came out of left field. I have been working at a job that’s exhausted me mentally. One that hasn’t always been easy to shut out when I go home for the day/weekend. I may have enjoyed some tasks this job involved at one time but now I have become so resentful that I can’t quite remember what those were.

I have a feeling that I am not the only person my age going through this type of feeling. I believe you can feel burnt out whether you have a job or not, and with so many unemployed people in my generation I thought it might be beneficial to share what I’m going through.

I seemed to be turning into a happy go lucky girl again and great things were starting to happen for me. I am not discounting the fact that I am still this person but right now I feel like the shell of a human. I can only find joy in eating mounds of unhealthy foods and sitting on the couch doing literally nothing. I can’t look in the mirror because I feel disgusted with the person I am right now. I have started drinking an unhealthy amount of coffee each day. The list goes on…

Luckily, I am starting a new job in about a week so I am very thankful for a new opportunity and the chance to start over and put my priorities first for a change. The truth is that it doesn’t have to get this bad. We have the power to create the life we want and I refuse to ever let anything become more important than my well being ever again. No matter what!
