Workaholism Structure and Function: Triggers

April 30, 2020

For me, my workaholism is triggered by feeling inadequate and nothing is worse than overworking myself while not getting enough sleep. I’m trying to keep myself well through this pandemic by keeping my paranoia contained. Thoughts of my family interfere with my skill to not overwork myself, although I do that from guilt. In my family if you did not overwork, you weren’t loved. I had two bad examples of overworking being something that needed to be done, that you needed to do. I am triggered also by fear of laziness, because I’m like, wondering if taking a day off makes me a lazy coward. Yet again, though, I need to take time off because I’m very sensitive to stress.
