I’m burning myself out. I feel the need to give my work everything that I’ve got. I realize that I’m lucky enough to have work that I’m passionate about, but I don’t know how to slow down. For a myriad of reasons it’s not in my nature to allow other people to fail. For better and for worse I will damn near always pick up the slack because I, perhaps foolishly, believe that they would do the same thing for me. I want as much responsibility as I can possibly handle, I want to over achieve at all times because it’s who I am and how I was raised. I’m aggressively type A in nearly every facet of my life and I’m sure it’s detrimental to certain parts of my life, but I’m not sure I care. All I can think about is the next step and the next goal and the next day. I’m not sure I know how to slow down, I’m not sure I want to.
