“Burnout is when you’ve forgotten who you are and where your boundaries are. You’ve occupied the stress zone way too long.”
There’s something to be said for growing up in a family of Dutch heritage. Those hard-work values get instilled in you from an early age, meaning there’s never any time to rest. Wash the car! Sweep the driveway! Find something to do! Although I grew up in a kind and loving family environment, I was definitely programmed to think this way.
