A podcast I was listening to said something about burnout being the result of having a generous heart. That people with a generous heart want to help someone else.
The Curse of a Generous Heart (Also, Burnout)
Then my brain flipped it on its head. What happens to selfish people? Do they get burnout?
In this context, I’m using the word selfish as more of a cruel disregard for others, rather than a “selfish by putting your oxygen mask on first” type of situation. The negative selfish, not the positive selfish.
I have no answers to this – but it has been floating around in my head for a few months now.
Do you think selfish people can get this kind of burn out?
