Burnout: when people around you don’t get it.


Have you ever felt like the weirdo within your life, because you had (or have) ‘less energy’ than other people around you? 

Have you ever experienced a burnout, and felt completely alone because people didn’t get it, wouldn’t acknowledge it, and couldn’t understand it?

If you ever feel like the over-emotional, over-sensitive one within the groups / families / communities you’re a part of, you’re NOT alone.

For years I felt like a total nutcase, because I couldn’t convey my constant exhaustion to those in my life.

To be honest, I felt guilty. And embarrassed. From the outside, my life looked a-ok. And yes – life was good, but I wasn’t doing good within it.

It took me YEARS to connect with, truly listen to, and deeply honour my innate constitution.

Now, I truly CELEBRATE the ways in which my body, mind, and spirit speak to me, when I’m being inauthentic, pushing too hard for too long, and not honouring my own boundaries and needs.

Listen up, beautiful human: you are not weird for having a sensitive or introverted constitution. Or for going through a period of burnout without some seemingly ‘huge’ reason for it. Or for wanting to be in bed at 10pm on a Saturday night. Or for needing lots and lots of time by yourself. Or for getting drained by being around humans too much.

But you know what IS weird?

Thinking that your symptoms mean nothing. That your emotions mean nothing. That you should just push through all of it, all of the time. (Yes, we all have to push through certain stages and phases in life, but this shouldn’t last forever).

I recorded a video blog for you on this exact topic. You can watch it below!

I hope it reminds you of this very important truth:

Other people’s judgements about how much ‘energy’ you have, mean nothing. But how you honour the true wisdom of YOUR innate and inherent constitution, means everything.

Watch below for more insight!
