I’m used to and guilty being one of those who don’t normally take vacay nor vacay for themselves.. I’ll only be out for being sick, doctors, or for others such as weddings.. but not myself. It’s hard… :/ born and raised to work so hard no matter your condition, it’s hard to adjust out of it. I’m considering it though. Yeah I’ve been contemplating, and I know for sure I’m experiencing compassion fatigue 🥺 it’s a mixed of emotions right now or for a while.
I think you're in desperate need for a good break :)At this point I'd say.. Just do it. Just take 2 week break doesn't matter where, hopefully that will provide some clear perspective.
Thank you 🥲 I will see if I can see soon, I may make a trip to the beach and stay overnight~

May I ask what did you end up doing in your situation? I told my supervisor I was interested of transferring into another program under my company (which the program staffs’ initially reached out to me and actually gave me the idea since most of the staff and director want me to be a part of their team Lol), my sup finally said she’s for it if I wanna switch over… but I just wanna explore first and see if I really wanna.
In my case I had to wait for an opening within the same company, but at a different location. This involved moving 120 miles away. However, it was moving BACK to where I had lived before so it wasn't to a totally new area. The location that I moved to had far fewer problems and it was better hours. So you are looking into transferring into a different program within the same company? It sounds like they want you!
That’s very true…… thanks for your wisdom as always 🙏🏻
It has been too hard to do regular breaks, but I will try when I can thank you! :)
Thanks, I’ll think about it 😂😂😂👌🏻
I’m considering 1&3 for sure.
2 and 4 @bobalife? 😂
Lol well 2 is a side dream that’s far in the future.4, I’m not sure. Not usually my scene though.
why is 2 a dream in future best time to start a business is yesterday second best is nowand 4 u need a work life balance how do u mean not usually your scene? do u not enjoy sex?
It does sound like a really good plan… but with my type of work… I’d feel guilty.. I’m thinking of maybe taking a day or two off soon. Thanks! 😊
You'll feel more guilty if you're getting so stressed out that your performance will be affected by it. So take some time off, a few days alone can already do you good
Thank you for your insight! I felt the same... At work, everyone thinks I’m fine and usual bubbly self. But it’s actually affecting me more internally.
Ah I can't act towards my colleagues, if I'm in a bad mood they will know about it! I talk to some of my colleagues about it if we're stressed. So if that can help, you can try that too. It doesn't work for me though, I just do it. But expressing my mood at work probably helps, so you don't let it bottle up.
Good for you! That's one way to get out of a burn out job.
Yeah that’s plan B…
