Burnout is real and it’ll push us to the brink.

And then, we question whether we should feel burned out.

Isn’t that ridiculous?

Like, we should be grateful for even having the opportunity to do what we get to do.

It’s a complete mind fuck.

It’s like we’re incapable of being kind to ourselves and saying “Hey, take a step back and pause”. It’s like if we’re not going faster, even if it’s just spinning our wheels, then we’re not worthy.

“Am I being enough?”

“Am I doing enough?”

“Am I enough?”

These should be simple questions without complex answers.

But, they are not. That’s when we have to find the signal in the noise.

→ We have to know when my brain isn’t firing correctly.

→ We have to pull the reigns.

→ We have to take control.

At the end of the day, we have the control.

The $64,000 question is always, “Do I have the power to control the demons?”

The answer is always YES. Because they are our demons. We’ve constructed them in our head and they’ve lived rent-free and comfortably for far too long.

They may rent space but we are the landlord.

We have the power to take back control.

It’s ultimately our decision.
