Discussion on: Burnout Is What Happens When You Don't Recharge Your Batteries

I was in a role that I didn't hate, but it was missing all the things I enjoyed doing. I couldn't contribute to the things that were valuable to me. Mentoring others, coding, designing architectures, and debugging were things I enjoyed doing, but I stepped out of that side of things.

This this very relatable. If you are missing the things that you enjoy, burn out is very likely to set in.

I'm a similar position now as you were before you left your company. I'm feeling very burnt out to the point that I took a much needed day off. Similar to what you said above, the damage may already be done, but I realize that an am making efforts to take care of myself.

Thanks for sharing.
