Now I have got all the results from the blood test I have taken. I know that many of you have been concerned about my health. I thank you and I was touched by your thoughtfulness. Do not worry, everything looked ok.
What happened may have been a combination of that I’ve had some reduced strength after the flu that I’ve been with for about four weeks, plus some other things that happened. that threw me back several years back in time.
I know I have many here who have gone through a similar journey in terms of burnout.
We may have had different trips and reasons why we suddenly crashed. These words is directed from me to you.
Find the source of why. Start from there. Believe me, you have more power and strength than you can even imagine. Believe me, I know! Those who burn out are the strongest and we have fallen and fallen and fallen several times but always lift us off the ground over and over again until the day came where we could no longer stand up. But it is possible to come back . Start with to give you time to feel who you are, search the source of the pain, do something about it, change direction of your life and make the changes that´s needed.
It may take time, it may take years, but it is possible. While that sometimes it will happens whats happened to me last Friday, something triggers a real event, but remember this: you have gone through purgatory so many times and you have been strengthened by it. Also keep in mind that if you has been burned out so there will always be the “burning out” latent in the dark, but do not let it take over the light in you.
Breathe deeply, focus, lift up your chin and say to yourself: I can. I’m ready. I know my strength and what I can achieve.
I forgot one very important thing.
Be aware that now and then you will fall sometimes. I had forgotten it and it left its mark this weekend but hopefully I have it in mind the next time this happen.’
If you are aware about it, your consciousness will take the most of its pain before you hit the ground , and eventually you will barely feel later of these burned-out fall.
Don’t forget to be human, feel both joy and sorrow. You’re not a robot. Feel the life.
Hugs to you. You who know what I’m talking about.
