I’ve been trying to come up with something to write, the entire day, and I’ve had nothing so far. A couple of weeks ago, this would’ve made me question my abilities as a writer. But I’ve come to realize that burnout isn’t a sign of your lack of abilities; it’s just you unable to rack your brains for a good idea because you’ve been overworking it for so long.
I think we should all take it easy on ourselves, sometimes. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately and it has been stressing me out a lot more than it should. There have been thoughts that I’d rather keep pushed back to the deepest parts of me, but sometimes, you cannot help but let everything out after bottling up your emotions for the longest time. I have my own fears and I’m sure everyone else does too.
This is a reminder for you all to take a day off and let yourself just exist. Breathe. You don’t have to try to be so strong all the time. You can try again, tomorrow.
Allow yourself to be human today. Xx
