Re: Starting to burn......out! I hope not
I think most people experience something like this at one point or another. I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. Have you tried talking about it to any fellow friends at the dojo? Sometimes hearing how someone else pushed through it can help.
As far as being stressed out, it seems most people are with you (especially when it comes to finances!). I know my husband and I are barely keeping our heads above the water. I feel like we are doggie paddling and let me tell you... I'm getting tired!
I sure hope things get better for you though. Just keep your head up and things will turn around eventually. If you do have to walk away from aikido for a bit, it will always be there for you again when you are ready.
