Just because something is common shouldn’t mean that it’s normal. Let me explain: while it’s very common for people to experience burnout at some stage in their life it doesn’t mean that we should accept it as normal. Normal means that it’s to be expected, it’s the norm and it implies that that’s just how it goes. It subliminally communicates that we are helpless because norms are not easily changed. In your own mind it could be helpful if you learn to distinguish between things that are common (but you could do something about if you needed to) and normal.
