I want a break. And I deserve a break.
But if I always take a break, I’ll never get a break from the thing I need a break from.
The break is short term, and changes nothing (if we’re lucky, it does help us feel more relaxed). After the break, I often feel the same as I did before I took it. Only now time has passed, so that gets me even more upset because I’ve “wasted” the little time I have to make a difference.
Taking that time to make changes has the potential to give me a permanent break from what I need a break from.
This may sound absurd, or like a line from a Gertrude Stein novel, but it’s true.
And remember, you are not alone…
