*Trigger Warning ⚠️*
My strength and survival are really being tested today.
Could someone please just write me a hall pass for today?
I need a break from myself. I don’t have the strength to maneuver my way through today. I need to press the pause button on my life right now?
I try to close my eyes, take a deep breath and imagine a place I’d rather be. It’s magical. I know I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. I’m dealing with alot all at once. I know I need to throw away the guilt and show myself more self-compassion. I know I shouldn’t feel like such a failure and burden.
I know I don’t need anyone’s permission to feel my feelings. I know I have nothing to prove to anyone but myself. I know my feelings are valid but then why does both my pain and limitations make me feel as though they’d be better understood if I had cancer or even a broken leg? Why does that feel so much more accepting and way more forgiving in this moment?
I’m doing all that I can to protect my mental health today, I know that is the first sign of strength.
