Do you feel like you're carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders?

Do you feel like with every move you make, something valuable shatters between you and the ones you love?
Shoulders turned to stone, heart turned to ice, soul vanishing with every tear you shed and every piece of your heart being crushed into smaller pieces every minute that passes by?
You're not alone, I feel it too.

Know that you can cut out toxic people every now and then, if it feels necessary. You shouldn't be solving other people's problems, unless you want to. Only do so if you feel it in your heart.
Know that you shouldn't be pleasing anyone other than yourself, 'cause at the end of the day, you're all you have when you close your eyes and the rest of the world fades away.
If you're the glue, if you're the magnet, I feel it too.

If you're the one expected to protect, to solve, to fix, to shelter, to love unconditionally, I feel it too.
If you feel like the rest of the world doesn't make sense, considering we're all floating in a giant ball in the middle of nowhere, yet we're expected to do so much, I feel it too.

It will all pass, it will all heal, and in the in-between, lift some weight off your shoulders, 'cause only people who want to, should be the glue.
You do not owe anything to anyone, except to yourself.
