100% this. No bridges burned (or even slightly singed). Sometimes things
happen. We understand.
I myself have just now taken a month off from my day job (first long
break in like 15 years) because I was simply burned out and couldn't
function well. The only recreation I enjoy (kayaking, also my only
exercise) was closed off to me last year when we had COVID lockdown and
not being able to do this for a long time led to other complications -
meaning even now that it's allowed I haven't been able to get out again.
It seems nowadays many more people have a poorer work/life balance than
say 25 years ago (I'm one of them) and for some this has both physical
and mental repercussions.
Honestly I think having the same hobby as your day job isn't always a
good thing; yes you can enjoy your job more as hey someone's paying you
to do stuff you used to do for fun - but IMO there's got to be other
things in the mix to keep your mind healthy otherwise it ceases being
TL;DR sometimes one just needs to step back and say "that's enough, at
least for now, I've got to do something else".
