We’ve all had those days when we’ve felt drained out, exhausted and just plain listless! But, we’ve all felt equally perplexed when we just fail to see why are we being so lethargic and uninterested even as we know that no physical exhaustion is there! Like it happens with all other intangible concepts of life, here you might be suffering from emotional fatigue, a state of mind where you have been brought down by the sheer burden of your own unresolved emotions.
To elaborate the definition better, let’s first quickly look at the 5 key reasons why some of us face such emotional fatigue in our lives.
The 5 Key Reasons
1. Stagnation and boredom
We often reach a point of saturation in life beyond which is important to rejuvenate ourselves. If not handled well, this saturation point can easily translate into a loss of interest and hence emotional tiredness.
2. Unclear goals
When we have unclear or non-realistic goals in life, it quickly converts into severe loss of interest and the feeling of listlessness in our everyday activities.
3. Physical weakness
A healthy mind cannot reside in an unhealthy body. When we suffer from constant physical weakness or fatigue, it has a psychological effect and makes us emotionally exhausted.
4. Deterioration of relationships
We tend to feel disinterested if there has been some deterioration in the key relationships of our lives. Being emotionally dissatisfied is an important reason many of us end up feeling disinterested in everything else.
5. Failure to express yourself
We are often unable to explain our feelings and reactions to the people who matter. In such cases, most of us withdraw into our own shell, which eventually presents itself as psychological fatigue.
