You Need A Rest

You need a rest.
You need empty moments in which you tolerate your anxiety
and circling thoughts until they slow down and stop circling.
You need slow, quiet activities that ground you
and remind you to accept yourself in spite of huge obstacles
and bad thoughts.
You need to put solutions out of your mind for now,
and engage in activities that have nothing to do with your ego.
You need habits that strengthen your patience and focus,
but also feel real and not arbitrary.
You need to abandon your glorious future
and build your imperfect present instead.
