vulnerability is like so hard, if I told you anything sappy please know that I had a hand to hand combat with seven layers of embarrassment and repression
On days you feel exhausted but frustrated because you feel like you haven’t done anything to be this tired, think about these things:
How longe since you’ve had a good night’s sleep? No nightmares, no waking up multiple times, actually going to bed early, not having insomnia, actually waking up feeling rested and ready to face the day?
How long has it been since you ate a properly nutritious and wholesome meal?
How long since you’ve taken a break from work without thinking about all the work you will have to do later?
Are you currently fighting any illness? Remember your body takes energy to recover.
Are you really “doing nothing” if you are constantly overthinking the fact you feel unproductive, if you are constantly stressed with the things you do and don’t do?
Have you had bad/no social interaction lately?
Are you in any physical or mental pain?
Are you taking care of everyone but yourself?
Does trying to live during a pandemic and world crisis brings you worry and stress?
Are you feeling anguish over all the burdens you have to carry but don’t seem to be able to do everything you feel like you should be doing?
Are you constantly worried? Anxious?
It doesn’t feel like you have been doing nothing now, does it? It feels like you have a lot going on that you have to deal with daily, even when you don’t consciously notice it. There is a lot of stress inducing factors around you and struggling is okay.
It is not easy to be human sometimes, so please, don’t pressure yourself so much when you are already trying to cope. If it feels like everything is too heavy, please ask for help.
Please take care of yourself. 🌱
