Lose Weight

"Atlas wasn't forced to hold up the world.
He was convinced that if he didn't,
the world would fall."
Mark Nepo

There is a difference between
bearing one another's burdens
and taking on another's pain
that just isn't yours to carry.
So go ahead.
Put down what you've been holding up.
Your shoulders and back will thank you.
