While holding a brick
Above my head
And waves washing over,
And offering no hope
Under a moody grey sky.
I feel so swamped with work and after school meetings at the moment. I’m not complaining because this is what I wanted, and I feel like I’m doing something worthwhile. And I also know that these times come in waves, so before I know it, I’ll be over the peak and feeling better.
But I’m definitely peaking at the moment and I struggle to turn people down. I’ve started to read books on creating healthy boundaries and I realise that I find this very difficult.
I think that if I let someone down, they will hate me forever. And that is not true at all. I need to listen to the rational part of my brain, because that is the part that will keep me safe and prevent burnout.
