If the mountain seems too big today then climb a hill instead if the morning brings you sadness it’s ok to stay in bed if the day ahead weighs heavy and your plans feel like a curse there’s no shame in re-arranging don’t make yourself feel worse if a shower stings like needles and a bath feels like you’ll drown if you haven’t washed your hair for days don’t throw away your crown a day is not a lifetime a rest is not defeat don’t think of it as failure just a quiet, kind retreat it’s ok to take a moment from an anxious, fractured mind the world will not stop turning while you get realigned the mountain will still be there when you want to try again you can climb it in your own time just love yourself til then by Laura Ding-Edwards

I’m not trying to follow you to the end of the world
