As life gets busier and busier, you tend to get easily fed up running around, doing things that demand more than just your time and energy. Feeling swamped, easily exhausted, and empty all of a sudden are red flags mental burnout has taken root.

Sometimes it's the physical weakness that takes a toll. Other times, it's about people trying to define what you should and shouldn't be doing. And then comes the point where you might feel you've had enough and are done, and think of giving up what you were holding on to because you are fed up.

Mental burnout can drain your energy and pull you back from climbing up the social ladder, and being fed up chronically could be one of those warning signs that need immediate attention, particularly if it recurs and keeps you from being productive.

"Boys are like elastic bands. It doesn't mean that boys are made of elastic, which is a plus because nobody wants a boyfriend made out of rubber. On the other hand, if they were made out of rubber, you could save yourself a lot of time and effort and heartache by just rustling one up out of a car tire. Boys are different from girls. Girls like to be cozy all the time but boys don't. First of all, they like to get all close to you like a coiled-up rubber band, but after a while, they get fed up with being too coiled and need to stretch away to their full stretchiness. Then, after a bit of on-their-own strategy, they ping back to be close to you. So in conclusion on the boy front, you have to play hard to get and also let them be elastic bands."Louise Rennison
