Are You Headed for a Ministry Burnout? 10 Ways to Know for Sure

#4 – You are disconnected at home…when you get there, you do not want to engage with your spouse or your children, you cannot enjoy being around them…you spend more time online than you do with your family…and you find yourself wanting to sleep all of the time.

#5 – You continually tell yourself and those you love that this is just a really busy season and that you will slow down soon.  (However, the truth is that you have been most likely “singing that same song” for years!)

#6 – You are continually becoming obsessed with what others say about you…and one negative comment from someone who does not like you can put you in an incredibly deep valley and cause you to feel hopeless.

#7 – You begin to make easy decisions rather than the right ones…because the right ones take too much work.

#8 – There is no hope in you…and you actually despair life.  You have actually thought of death…and some have even entertained suicidal thoughts.
