Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1226: Burn Out Respite

There is a time and a place for everything and sometimes that is something that is not available. Ergo, sometimes you have to create the time and place for everything, but there is no telling and all that other stuff so you know how it goes and so on and so forth and slowly the spiral is returning and so it is time to get away from the spiral.

Just need to walk off the spiral and onto whatever it is that I can claim I can walk onto. Perhaps it is a stage and with that stage there is a chance to perform, but the performance must contain honesty. It must contain integrity. If it does not, then who am I to say that I really performed?

Perhaps there is no performance and there is no time and place for everything, but I do know that there is always room to try. It is good to try and it is good to try and go somewhere. It is good to work hard, but it is also good to not burn out. Perhaps creating a time and place for everything would also allow for the creation of a time and place for recovering from burning out, but at the same time there is a good chance that in doing this you’d burn out well before you’d get to the point where you’d have a place to recover from burning out and so maybe that is what should be created first.

Starting with a place to rest and then creating everything else so that all and everything is accommodated for would be the best way to go about things, but then again the order needs to still be considered and perhaps more time would be spent recovering from burn out than getting anything done and maybe this just isn’t a good idea at all. However, smaller goals are something to work toward and so… yeah.

You know, I wasn’t aiming to write something that could be seen as some sort of advice and was hoping for something much more silly and loose. It didn’t happen and now I have this, but really the best advice I can offer, at least at this particular juncture, is to make sure you are in a position to help others before you help others. Burning out and not being in the right space to make sure that you yourself are okay doesn’t help you help others, and continuously pushing through that kind of things can lead to some pretty undesirable impacts to your health. You have to make sure that you’re okay.

I think that not enough people look after each other for fear of selfishness and its unfortunate. We are allowed to look after ourselves, especially when it’s necessary. We just need to also make sure that we are helping each other without overextending.

Well, with that being said, I think it’s time to end this bit of writing as I’ve not much else.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:08:58

A bit of a mess before I hit a topic. Definitely could’ve been better in a few places.

Written at home.
