Are You Burned Out With Your Marriage?
We all go into a marriage hoping that things will work out forever, but that is not always the case. Marriage takes a lot of work and when it takes too much effort, it can be exhausting. When a person gets overly exhausted, they tend to get burned out. This burnout, if not remedied, can lead to divorce.
Burnout can affect a person emotionally and physically. Are you burned out with your marriage? Here are some signs of emotional exhaustion.
You Feel Discomfort
Something isn’t right, but you’re not sure what it is. You think it might be your marriage, but you’re oblivious to it. You try to ignore it, but the problem doesn’t go away. It manifests into other symptoms.
You’re Constantly in a Bad Mood
Your mood should not be constant. If you are always feeling irritable, cranky, or just plain sad, then you may be burned out in your marriage. You are likely drained of your energy due to unresolved problems with your spouse. Constant negativity points to deeper problems in your marriage, so work with your spouse to try to resolve them.
You Feel Overwhelmed
Feeling emotionally tired is common. We’re so busy nowadays with work, errands to run, and professional and personal commitments. All these activities drain us of our energy. Problems in our marriage can do the same. When stress levels accumulate, you may feel overwhelmed. The best thing you can do is reenergize and feel better.
Your Needs Aren’t Being Met
In a marriage, both spouses should try to meet each other’s needs. You should not rely on your spouse if you don’t want to support them. But if you do support your spouse and you can never depend on them, then you may feel exhausted after a while. After all, it’s not fair that you have to take care of yourself and your spouse while your spouse acts like a taker.
You Want to Be Alone
Spending time alone is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s necessary. We all need some “me time” to relax and get rid of stress. However, if you feel like being alone all the time, it may be a sign that you’re emotionally exhausted. This is not a good sign, as you should want to spend time with your spouse. If you want to constantly be alone, figure out whether you’re really happier by yourself or you just want to avoid dealing with marriage-related issues with your spouse.
You Think About Divorce
If you’re thinking about divorce a lot lately, then you’ve reached your breaking point. You are seriously exhausted and need to have a discussion with your partner. You’re looking for an exit, but it may not be what you really want.
