Burnout

As individuals, we often embark on our journey by tackling small tasks and dedicating ourselves to helping others. We pour our energy into our work, extend our care to our families, and strive to bring happiness to those in our lives. However, as time progresses, we may find ourselves teetering on the brink of exhaustion, feeling the weight of our responsibilities pressing down on us. Despite the subtle warnings from within, we choose to brush off these signals, convincing ourselves that the stress will dissipate and that we possess the strength to manage it all.


With each passing month, we intensify our efforts to suppress these emotions, hoping they will eventually fade away. Gradually, we begin to realize that what once seemed like minor issues have now escalated in significance due to our reluctance to unload our burdens. Unbeknownst to us, the load we carry grows heavier, until we inevitably reach a state of burnout characterised by emotional fragility, fatigue, irritability, disrupted sleep patterns, and a sense of isolation.


Listening to the cues from our bodies is crucial in recognising the need to pause and prioritise self-care. It is essential to remember that it is completely acceptable to take a break, even if it is just a brief stroll or a relaxing bath. To effectively care for others, we must first care for ourselves. Opening up about our emotions can prove to be immensely beneficial, and with the right support system in place, we can begin to experience a sense of relief and improvement in our well-being. Remember, self-care is not selfish; it is a vital component of maintaining a healthy balance in life.
