To The Overwhelmed…
I know you are overwhelmed right now. Simple tasks are pushed aside and your anxiety seems to fill the room. Laundry piles up and to-do lists grow longer. You wonder how you let it get this bad and if it will ever feel like you aren’t drowning.
I know it takes everything for you to get out of bed some days.
To face another day after another sleepless night. A simple shower seems daunting. You feel so broken and unrepairable.
Dear Overwhelmed, I see you and I’m here to walk beside you.
You are not alone. I’ve been there. Waves of depression and the heaviness of keeping the mask up in public. Avoiding responsibilities, walking around in a zombie-like stage of numbness. My heart aches for you.
But I’m telling you, it will get better.
Let those around you help. Seek out those friends and family members that are begging to help you up. Let them wrap their arms around you. Allow yourself some grace and time to heal.
Tomorrow is a brighter day, full of possibility. I know you can come out on the other side. I know there is laughter and joy in your tomorrow. But, until you are ready to do this for yourself, I will sit here with you.
