I’ve recently found myself struggling to keep up with my prayers and daily life. I’m hitting a rut and I’m losing my drive to do things. If I had to say anything it feels like I’ve burnt myself out. I want to do things, but I don’t have the drive to do them. What do I do?
These are the things I’ve been telling myself and questioning what I should do. For two days I’ve been struggling to keep up with daily life and I’ve been pretty depressed. In times like these, even I struggle to find out what to do, so I do what I always do which is meditate and pray in front of Christ crucified even though that’s an extremely difficult task in itself.
When I find myself praying and meditating, I can barely go longer than 5 minutes before I have to stop and relax. I realize that this is the sign of some change and that the way I’ve been doing things isn’t the way to go anymore. That’s the most important part to realize about these times of dryness or burnout, When we as people get into too much of a routine, we get burnt out and tired of the boringness of life so we require some change. If you ever find yourself in these situations, change up the way you do things, whether that be the order or timing of things, and find a way to inspire yourself to do those things you love again.
As usual, I find these thimgs out through my prayers and meditations and even in that short 5 minutes, I poured my heart out to God and this is the answer he gave me. So, my dearest friends and readers, if you are ever in a tough situation, find time to pray to Christ crucified by pouring out your feelings to him and crying to him about what’s going on. There’s no harm or shame being a human and feeling things so by all means share that with him!
