Here is why I’m RTing this: I’m 32. I am literally lying in my bed on a Sunday, tears falling.
When I first RT’d this - I made it halfway through, and was too exhausted to finish. It took 2 days to read, multiple beaks and restarts.
(Literally, no one is reading at this point, I know. So let’s shout into the void.)

I have sobbed for an hour, every week but one, in therapy for six months.
I have spent thousands of dollars in therapy to help myself get out of bed. Literally - I have scared the shit out of my husband, waking up crying more than once.
This is both okay, and not okay. Feeling exhausted isn’t bad occasionally! But it’s not normal for that to be your default.
I’m good at my job. I’m a good person. But I am dying inside from the pressure to be everything to everyone.
This is not purely related to my age or cohort group. This is linked to other factors. But I know I’m not alone. And many people in my age group have been working nonstop, obsessing over advancement for a decade.
My current mood: the happy face of this stuffed sloth getting destroyed by my dog: #ThisIsFine #tequila #rose
So, to summarize: you are enough. Saying you need a break is healthy. I’m going to try to take my own advice.
(And, I am terrified to hit send, because I’m terrified of being judged for all of this.)
TLDR: you’re a badass, take the time you need for yourself, and do what you can to support the people around you. You never know how much they may be struggling.
And, if you’ve made it this far, and need help, my DMs are open.
(Ya’ll. I have the best husband. After seeing this thread and making sure I was good, he bought us ticket to a movie I’ve been dying to see, but he isn’t super in to.)
