You do not owe your partner(s) sex. I mostly see this passed around in the asexual community, and it absolutely needs emphasis there, but this applies to anyone of any orientation. You never owe your partner(s) sex under any circumstance.
If your sex drive or libido is lower than your partner’s, you may feel obligated to “keep up” with them to make them happy. But you have a right to say no, or not be in the mood, or be too tired, or just not want to right now. Your partner(s) should respect your right to say no and your bodily autonomy.
If your partner(s) try to harass, manipulate, or coerce you into having sex when you say no, they’re an asshole. Having said yes in the past does not mean you can never say no. It is not your responsibility or obligation to provide sex. You do not need to violate your own boundaries to make someone else happy. Your partner(s) should respect your right to say no, and if they don’t, they don’t deserve you.
Your body belongs to you, and you decide what’s best for your sexual health. Happy Pride

Burnout is honestly such a mild word for what people use it to mean. I'm not experiencing "burnout", which sounds so casual and routine that some face masks and a little rest is going to fix it.
My body and mind and even nervous system are stretched to the point that it's going to take a lot more than just a "break" or a few self care tips to recover, and even then, my recovery is just so that I can reenter the spaces that contributed to me being this way in the first place. I'm a little bit more than just burnt out by this.
Workplaces and educational institutions aggressively overwork us, expose us to all kinds of discrimination, which they overlook and gaslight us out of acknowledging, and then constantly ask us to ignore our mental, emotional, and physical needs so that we don't inconvenience them.
We're not burnt out. We're borderline traumatized. Burnout is always talked about like something transient and mild that a little rest and relaxation will fix.
But we're exhausted. We need deep rest and healing. We need new systems. We need new ways of being. The language around burnout just seems like a way of upholding these current violent systems and downplaying their impacts.

“attention seeking” behaviour should be taken seriously, it is often a cry for help for people who don’t know how to voice their problems properly.
it should not be an insult.

Its "mental health matters" until someone has a trauma response that's not disordered in a way you like to romanticize

Do you ever feel like you don't matter? I think all of us do sometimes. But here's something to keep in mind:
-There was a girl in elementary school who stood up for me when others made fun of my nervous habits. We haven't talked in years. I think about her all the time.
-A kid I didn't know who found me crying and hugged me made me to decide to stay alive for another night, even though we're complete strangers.
-There's a girl at my new school who probably just thinks that we're acquaintances, but she smiled at me on my first day, and for that, I will be forever grateful to her.
-There was a boy in my english class a few years back who was always quiet and withdrawn. I always hoped that he was okay and that he would reach out if he needed anything, and that made me realize it was okay for me to ask for help too.
My point? There are people in your life who think about you and care about you more than you ever know - you might not be aware of them. I'm thinking of you and sending love your way. You matter, and the world is better with you in it.

For everyone with social anxiety, this is a reminder that you don't have to be perfect in your interactions with others; you just have to be kind and that's literally it. That's all that's necessary of you. You don't need to say the perfect thing or anticipate what they would want you to say or even exude confidence if you can't.
Social anxiety tells us that we have to be perfect in in our social interactions, but no one is. Social anxiety sets us up for a level of expectation in our social interactions that we have no choice but to fail at, and then fall into a cycle of self-hate for failing and striving even harder for perfection.
