How are people dealing with burnout? I really loved my job (M&A, NYC).

The hard parts of BigLaw have gotten harder and all my ways of recharging are gone (travel, commiserating over beers, etc.) I’m dying and no end in sight.

I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
