I can feel it coming… the tension, the pressure, the mounting confusion.
And then it passes.
But before I know it, it is back again.
Stress. Tension. Confusion.
Headaches, body aches, fatigue.
Expectations. Broken promises. Unrealized dreams.
Commitments. Engagements. Tasks.
It begins to be difficult to breathe.
Guilt. Shame. Fear.
It suffocates me.
And then I breathe, and I remember who I am.
