Let yourself listen to what your body has to say.
For it surely has something to say. Honour its wisdom, even if you can’t yet tell what it is.
Start with tiredness. The tiredness that suddenly sweeps over you in a meeting, in a conversation, on walking into a room, when an argument begins, when you’re not getting your way.
What kind of tiredness is this? Surely not the late-at-night tiredness, the not-enough-sleep tiredness.
But maybe the tiredness of bending yourself out of shape, the tiredness of fear, the tiredness of goals that aren’t sincere and commitments that aren’t genuine, the tiredness of saying yes when you mean no, and no when you mean yes.
And maybe the tiredness that your body brings you when it needs to point out that, despite what you’re telling yourself, here is not where you genuinely want to be.
