Dear tired soul,
I know that you hear the phrase, “Just take a break, you deserve it” way too many times throughout your week. For the majority of people, taking a break is something they honestly feel as if they deserve and even take for granted.
For you, for people like you who feel guilty for momentarily pausing to regain the strength to push forward with your goals, it doesn’t come easy. The constant striving to achieve, the constant self-reminder of what’s at stake, that will always be in the forefront of your mind.
So what actually makes you feel all that better?
Not the “Take it easy on yourself” because the truth is, you will never stop striving for what other people see as unattainable. But remember this: in the midst of the grind, you may lose an ounce or two of happiness in your life. When you neglect everything that feeds your soul for what satisfies your mind, you will sooner or later face the lack.
When the aching in your soul is too much to bear, reach out. There are so many around you willing to hold you until you find the comfort you need. If you cannot give yourself a break, at the very least, be kind to yourself <3 You deserve that, undoubtedly
Someone who has your back
