I have been in a creative slump. No, that’s inaccurate. I have been overwhelmed to the point of tears and can’t mange to do anything other than work and mindlessly scroll social media, so needless to say, a creative slump was inevitable.
I am a classic extrovert. I crave conversation, real human interaction, and working in person with people. I also work from home. And this has been a hard for me because I am at my happiest when I am interacting with people. I’m at my lowest when I am isolated.
I’ve talked before about how trying to be the best version of myself was burning me out, and this is still accurate. Having an overwhelming list of things to do everyday to be the “best” is a great way to become disenchanted with self improvement. But birthdays can be a great way to start anew.
