How many of you have tried to drive as long as you can with your car’s gas gauge hovering close to “E”, thinking that you can get just one more mile, one more block closer to your destination without making that stop at the gas station to fill up? Then, when you do get to the gas station, the fill up is always more costly because your gas tank is bone dry, you might have caused engine damage, and the stress of knowing if you have enough to get you to your destination is just enough to put you over the edge.
Ironically, that’s what I’ve been doing to myself. I have been running my own engine dry to the point where I am close to breaking down. Even things that I enjoy to do are laborious to me, and I’ve been having a hard time to get myself to do them (i.e. writing this blog, doing crafts). Something is really wrong when the things that are supposed to bring you happiness make you run in the other direction.
I am on empty and I don’t know how I can get my engine going again because I’m totally depleted. Too much of me is going out and I don’t have anything left.
What can I do?
