I’ve always had an unhealthy relationship with work, and often use it to keep myself busy. Before starting @safareya.en last year, I had a monthly travel budget that would take me to one new place in Egypt every month. Since starting Safareya, my entire team routinely begs me to go on vacation but I can’t seem to get myself to do it. It’s a mishmash of not having the energy to pick up and travel (I’m perpetually exhausted and would rather rest), not knowing how to rest and take time for myself without thinking “I could’ve been finishing this project right now!” and frankly being too much of a control freak to be entirely unplugged from my team for a few days.
I would love to wake up to this view while not thinking about what work needs to get done and whether or not I’ve updated everyone’s Asana. But I can’t. I feel guilty. Something in me gets antsy and needs to sit down at a computer or pick up my phone to check in. My surroundings may be serene but my brain is storming.
My name is Monica, and I’m a workaholic.
I’m also not in Dahab right now. .
