I am convinced that behind the exhaustion, the lack of concentration, the irritability, the lack of productivity of a person and the constant physical discomfort lies something else. While it is true that daily life can be stressful, when this exceeds the limits and continuously affects the person, we must look closely and ask ourselves what is behind it?
In my professional experience as a psychotherapist, I have observed that unresolved traumatic situations can be the root of the problem. The person is sometimes not aware of what is happening and does not imagine that this “exhaustion” could be derived from an emotional issue.
Of course, it is easier to blame the bad weather, the boss, the partner, the children, the neighbor, etc., for what you feel, because it is difficult to accept that you cannot go on alone and you need help to move on.
All people at some point in our lives have gone through dark moments and there is nothing to be ashamed of, no one has a perfect life, however, we cannot go around taking our exhaustion, irritability, lack of concentration, etc., to everyone else.
The obligation of each person is to take responsibility for what is happening to her/him and seek help, or sometimes it is necessary to take time to heal. Dragging others into what is happening to us will simply make others feel exhausted from our attitude and they will go away.
I think most of us went through a similar situation either with a family member, friends or with co-workers. It is also difficult for those of us on the other side, because as much as we try to be empathetic, if the person does not do anything by himself/herself, it is very complicated for us to help him/her.
If you have been feeling this “inexplicable exhaustion”, please seek help for your mental health, do it for yourself and those around you.
