I want to write a short essay on what I think the phenomenon that I title "The Burnout Effect". This is what I feel that some of us have gone through as of recently. It's where you get sick of something after you done it for so much and so long. For a few of us, this has happened with the forums to an extent. I will not name anyone out of respect for them but there have been a few prolific members here in this very community who have just gotten sick of the forums because of how obsessive they were. To an extent, I feel the same way but not how much some others have been feeling. I guess what this comes down to is that an addiction to anything, be that games, friends, a community, it can have a toll on your mental state. Granted, this is not a problem for everyone but with people who have an addictive personality such as myself it's an internal battle we face everyday. It's a battle between how much time should we allot to a certain hobby or obsession of ours. Just wanted to write this to explain to some people on how this works and how to deal with it. Just take breaks so you never overwork yourself to exhaustion and to the point where you just end up hating that very thing you love all so much.
