This deficit can be not only a subjectively felt need, but also an attitude towards life, which, ultimately, can lead to burnout.
How do I understand my life? Based on this, I can develop my goals according to which I live. These settings can be from parents, or a person develops them in himself. For example: I want to achieve something. Or: I want to have three children. Become a psychologist, doctor or politician. Thus, a person for himself outlines goals that he wants to follow.

Freudenberger created a scale consisting of 12 stages of burnout. The first step still looks very harmless:
