I’m not drowning. I’ve been drowning before, been so low below water that I had to struggle to keep my head up, but that’s not me right now. Right now, the water is safely pooled around my calves, the current most certainly pressing against me but not sweeping me away. I’ll be fine. Once I gather my strength a little bit, I’ll be able to walk right on out of here. So, I’m not drowning.
I’m not empty. I don’t feel nothing. I’m smiling and joking around and enjoying things still.
I’m not dead yet, I’m just tired. I just need a small rest. That’s all.
I’m unmotivated. I’m uncharacteristic; the Type A, hyper-ambitious bitch has been reduced to a motionless lump, in such a way that usually accompanies depression, but this time, I’m not depressed. This time, I’m just tired.
And ‘tired’ I can deal with. Tired is okay. Tired will pass. Tired had better pass, or I might have to do something about it.
I’m not done yet. I’m still here, I haven’t given up. I just need a break. I just need a direction. I just need some change.
I’m thinking. I’m planning. I may be a motionless lump, but I won’t be forever. And when it passes, I’ll be a force to be reckoned with, as always.
I’m still the same Type A, hyper-ambitious bitch you know and love. For now, I’m just tired.
