The time when we are able to release what we believe, what we hold dear, what we are fighting for.
We stand tall in the knowledge that they will remain until we are able to pack them up again.
Surrender to the fatigue, the tiredness, the exhaustion.
Release yourself of the idea that you are the only one, that you are the one that this fight depends on.
Relax into the gentle arms of the one that loves you, of the soft pillows upon your bed, feel yourself gently slip away into the sudsy warm water of a bath.
Let it go.
This is not yours to carry alone.
Stop fighting, stop struggling,
silence the chorus in your head.
Allow yourself the break, or the fatigue will break you.
For the moment just
Find the strength in letting go.
You have permission.
