Understanding why and how my burnout was caused was the first part of getting well. Next I needed to organize some time to rest and in order to do that I needed to feel confident in saying no some things but you see that part was linked to a larger issue: I had a selfworth that was based on productivity. The more I did the better I would feel. So I needed to track the very beginning of the problem which was me thinking that I was never the cool and pretty girl therefore I needed to be the good academic girl but playing a role like that made me tired since my true nature is being a real hot mess enjoying every single moment in life and philosophically thinking my way through in life - that is me. So this year I got to know myself again and get in touch with the real me a person who needs creative outlets in life in order to cope.
Year 2017 thought me how to be myself. As odd in seems to say it: I am thankful to have experienced a burnout at an early age because now I will never want to get to that point in life ever again, it acted as a warning sign and a reminder to practice a type of love called selflove. This holiday season is the prime time to think about what you have achieved in life and next year will be the perfect time to act upon dreams in order to make them reality.
Merry Christmas 🎄 and a Happy New Year 2018! 🍾
