Lots of people are experiencing burnout these days. You’re not alone. Maybe quitting your job and finding something more fulfilling to do is the answer. But maybe you just need some time off as well as some restructuring of your life so that you can experience more rest, joy and purpose.
It’s easy to romanticize the idea of being your own boss or getting rich by becoming a YouTuber, but keep in mind that almost every job has elements that are tedious or difficult. Talk to a counselor, pastor, rabbi, life coach or anyone you trust who can listen well and help you think through next steps. You have many options, even if you can’t see them right now.
Take care of yourself first and commit yourself to finding your path forward. You can do it.
