I cant focus, I procrastinate a lot, very unproductive, I dont make an effort to be social. This have been going on for several months, but I haven't aways been like this. I used to be a driven top performer. I figured I got burnt out, but this has been going on for so long, I'm concerned.

Am I still burnt out after this much time or am i just lazy? Any advice on dealing with this and getting out of this rut?

Burn out doesn't end unless you solve it. It just turns into languishing and procrastination, which is a milder form.

Since May is mental health awareness month it might be worth looking into therapy and counseling if you’re not already in it or taking some time off from work and recharging. This sounds a lot like depression :(

I echo that advice as well. Finding a therapist can be tricky but it’s so helpful to navigate the “stuck”ness with someone who specializes in that

Sounds like depression or a chemical imbalance of sorts. Talk to someone, get some labs done, exercise, get some sunlight…

Super anxious because I am being viewed as “too direct & aggressive” by one of my bosses, who later kept spreading his words around about me. What happened was I asked 3-4 clarifying questions in project interview like normal, and interviewer misunderstood it as me leading the interview. I also network to learn a lot, which comes across as aggressive. So now, people who havent talked to me already carry that impression from his words even before knowing me. What to do? How to turn this around?
