I reached a breaking point with the simultaneous stress in my job and family, and accepted that I am completely burnt out. I used to be a high performing workaholic and now I no longer care about work and am just doing the minimum. Also starting to really value and focus more the life I have outside of work. I don't think I want to go back to being a stressed workaholic but this shift feels unnatural. A bit worried I will stop caring so much that I'll slip significantly. Any advice?

Re-evaluate your goals. Assess whether you’re working crazy hours to accomplish your life goals or whether you’re doing it out of insecurity and fear.

Oh that is a great piece of advice. I can say with certainty now (thanks to my therapists insights and my own personal reading around trauma's effects on kids) that insecurity and fear play a huge role in why I've gotten to this point. That and being a child of working class immigrants that always pushed me to do more. Thankful for parents' influence on my ambition/ work ethic but it went a little too far.
