The problems arise when the carrying power is greater than the capacity and the overload persists for a long time. People in this situation sinks ever further from himself, in an attempt to set requirements.
The greater the depletion, the worse the symptoms are. People who have been overloaded, are also becoming more emotional. Outbursts of anger, aggression, panic attacks, depression and distrust have replaced by irritation, worry and concern.
