Even the most courageous and stress-resistant people can get exhausted from caring for themselves and everyone around them. Even they can get tired of the lone-wolf lives they’ve chosen for themselves, all of the never-ending financial problems, and all of the tiresome work they must do.
They get exhausted of having everyone rely on them while not having a shoulder to cry on when they’re at their lowest.
They cannot say they’re unable to help because it seems like all the people they know expect them to do it. Others, meanwhile, expect them to always feel fine and don’t even think that they might have their own serious issues to deal with.
Even the most pain-enduring among us need love or even just a pat on the back. Nobody likes to feel alone. Nobody likes rejection. Sometimes, the strongest of us get tired of being heroes. Even they need to be rescued by someone who is caring and affectionate. They also need a best friend or a partner in life; someone who will give them the life-saving human bonding we all need in life.
Because sometimes, even the toughest person on the planet falls apart.
And normally, it is when they have had enough of life crashing down on them. When they have been everyone’s rock but have forgotten to care for themselves. When they cannot get out of bed because their heart and body are in deep pain. When all the things they were able to build fall apart and there is no one to console them or help them in any way.
Even the most resilient among us need a time out.
They need someone with a clear head to take the lead for a while. They need to take a break and regain their energy because otherwise, they risk hurting themselves badly. They need to open up and be vulnerable for a change and let others help them get back on their feet. they are not superhuman and they need others to acknowledge that.
Even the strongest person out there gets tired of being strong because they have not been given that strength at birth.
They have sacrificed a lot to become who they are and have faced the worst in life when there was no one around to pull them out of the darkness.
Sometimes, they even miss their previous selves, before people and life taught them who they should be – that they always need to be strong and independent because they are often abandoned by the people who they trust the most and cannot count on them for help.
If you are one of those special people, it is time for you to take a break and start practicing self-care. You have earned it, trust me.
