Burnt out, weary, gasping for breath,
feeling oblivious yet spurring myself on because that’s what I do.
When I feel like this,
automatic responses against my inner
voice to stop,
calm down, take a deep breath
Why is it so hard to stop?
To give myself permission to let go of
the relentless ‘to do’ list.
It’s so important to take care of myself
and break the childhood habits of caring for others at the expense of myself.
Memories, fears, past anxieties triggered. Can I get past them, break the cycle?
Only by giving them to God.
Letting Him take the burden.
