Racism, Discrimination and Activism Fatigue

Racial micro-aggressions are a major source of burnout in the workplace (and honestly, everywhere) for black people, indigenous people and people of color (BIPOC). Micro and macro experiences of discrimination are also happening daily for LGBTQ+ identified people, people who are undocumented or recent immigrants, women, people with disabilities and others whose needs are not met (or actively opposed) by society. While this is the truth of reality, it is a harmful myth that we must each just shoulder the burden of racism and discrimination stress alone. This leads to burnout on many levels and can be detrimental to your health and the health of your communities.

For people facing discrimination, resisting is a part of existing…and self-love is a radical political act. Developing a proactive self-love, care and validation process can enrich your life with optimally healthy coping skills to help you thrive and live your best life anyway.

Pacific Burnout Therapy is here to help you to thrive as you do the life-affirming personal, spiritual, psychological, social and public political work of resistance.
