Burnout- when you’ve become tired, exhausted, or emotionally depletedIt doesn’t feel that you have the energy to stick with the process of marriage.
Things you used to do with your partner do not excite you.
Withdrawal, irritability, frustration, nagging
Loss of intimacy
Loss of ability to compromise or discuss issues in a healthy way
May become pessimistic
Physical or emotional affair
Leading a parallel life- no longer involved with each other
Frequent arguments about the kids
If not properly handled can slowly lead to symptoms of depression
What to do-
Address this with your partner
Be honest about what’s going on
Seek help with someone who is qualified to help
Understand that you love your partner and you need tools to help you through this period
Burnout doesn’t necessarily mean the marriage is over, it just indicates that you need to be refreshed. Be honest with yourself and get the help you need to gain momentum.
