Does passion mean burnout is impossible?


I want to clear up the fantasy idea that something being a “passion” or “your own business” means you don’t need a break from it. This is false. This hustle culture rhetoric is pervasive. When I take time off, it’s from everything. I may still blog, but that’s minimal.

My burnout was medically driven; however, I did stall all operations at the time and focused on my mental health.

I maybe wrote a blog once a month and everything else online was automated from months prior... So no, passion levels have nothing to do with a clinical burnout.
