“I am so tired.”
It’s funny how ‘I’m tired’ is the slightly more honest version of ‘I’m fine.’
You can be tired from a long shift at work, or an argument with your best friend.
Or you can be tired from spending the night crying. You can be tired from pasting a smile on your face when all you can hear is the screaming in your head.
You can literally not move for hours and feel more tired than when you woke up.
I think it’s just our mind, fighting back the tidal waves of insecurity, of doubt, of regret. Pretty tough job, I must say. And it must really suck, going to sleep with the knowledge that when you wake up, you’ll be even more tired than when you closed your eyes.
