[Text: If you tried your best, you did enough.]
I've been thinking a lot about burn-out. It happens a lot among freelancers (turns out that keeping your own hours isn't as stress-free as it sounds). It's also something that activists have become more concerned with lately. When you're going to rallies and supporting people who need resources, or contributing to important legislation and volunteering... it can be exhausting. People feel like they need to be saving the world all the time. It's impossible. Often we forget to take care of ourselves along the way.
