I’m terrible at self-care. I’ve gotten a bit better over the years, but I tend to run myself into the ground. But today I did something for myself: I dropped one of the grad classes I was taking online. I’ve been running behind on everything in my life and I had a minor breakdown Sunday night when I realized I was in way over my head school-wise. It’s like a weight has been lifted (though I still feel like I’m drowning slightly.)
Rosh Hashanah begins tomorrow evening and I’ve already decided that I need to forgive myself for not living up to my instance expectations. I think I deserve a little slack.
