The Cure For Burnout (hint: it isn't self-care)

Burnout is not a medical condition. It's a condition related to overwhelming stress. One of the things that causes burnout is our inability to recognize the hard stuff welling up inside us. And the solution is to be able to turn toward the difficult feelings with kindness and compassion and say oh I feel stressed, I feel unreasonably angry right now. I'm so cranky I wonder why that is? Ask that feeling why are you there? What do you need from me? What has to change?

We have to overcome the fear of uncomfortable feelings.
