Where is the passion when you need it the most?


Somehow, I still haven’t learned this lesson yet.

I keep trying to do more and more

until my world finally breaks apart

and I’m left exhausted and broken.


I hate that I keep doing this to myself, yet I continue doing it anyway. It’s like I refuse to learn my lesson.

It’s just one thing after another, day after day. It feels like I can’t catch a break. 

I feel the stress… the pressure. 

 I’m losing my mind. 

On top if all, I still have a lot of weight upon my shoulders as far as my health concerns go.

I guess it’s just hard because I feel guilty because of all I can’t do because of my illness. I WANT to help. I want to make a difference… in something, somewhere. I want to be a good friend. A good student. A good patient. A good everything…. But I sacrifice myself in doing so.

How much can one person really do, after all? I feel like such a failure because eventually somethings have to be sacrificed. Despite what I wish I was, I am not a superhero. I am a measly human being. Sick or not, I try too hard sometimes to juggle way too many things  and I end up hating myself for it. 

I really need to learn to say NO and keep my life simple. 


I vow to take the time to care for both my mental and physical well-being,

and I will learn to say NO to the things I just can not do,

especially to those who wouldn’t do the same for me. 


Although some days I feel like I’m on the verge of exploding,

I will simplify my life and learn how to be happy again, despite my illness.

Because we never know how much time is left to enjoy this world.

I know I owe some health updates and I promise that they are coming soon.

It’s just too much to update tonight.

    It’s hard to get into the habit of turning “yes” into “I want to say yes, but let me get back to you.” But if you can do that – it gives you time (and courage) to frame your “no.” (Which can be “I’m sorry, but I can’t make that work.” Or some such.)

      Very true. I’ve been saying no to quite a few request lately, mostly because I’m legally running myself ragged, and haven’t got the best of responses. It’s opened my eyes to a few people who really just don’t care. Mainly, two people who seek out help only when they need it but don’t bother the rest of the time. I said no, politely of course, but then I haven’t heard from them. So good riddance ☺

    I feel like this is the aftermath of my post, haha. We should say no, but we care too much. I say that I don’t care too, but I do, and I certainly shouldn’t about the ones who don’t do the same for me. But I will definitely try if you are. It is a curse, but it shows me that I have a big heart (and I know you do too).
    I look forward to your next post xx
