Maybe you’re sitting at home on a quiet evening when you realized that you haven’t really been feeling ‘in touch’ with yourself lately, let alone with anybody else. The things that used to interest you have lost all of its appeal, you don’t feel like watching your favorite movie, or reading your favorite book. Maybe you were out dining with your friends when it became clear to you that you haven’t really been yourself, that life has been a little off for you lately, yet you don’t know how to deal with these feelings, nor put them into words. You think that, maybe, you’re just burnt out.
