HealthyGamer Notes

How to differentiate depression & burnout? Cynicism.

What are your values?

Factors:

  1. Values aren't aligned
  2. Overworked
  3. Isolated
  4. Not rewarded
  5. Lack of control
  6. Ego - is this coming from you?

Symptoms

  1. Lack of energy
  2. Lack of emphathy
  3. Lack of fulfillment

=> Leads to cynicism

When your values don't align, you will potentially burn out if being overworked/told to work more. For example: if someone is in medicine to help patients over money. If they're asked to stay longer to help more people => fine. If they're instead asked to stay longer to file bills or talk to insurance companies => "go fuck yourself".
