Cut Me A Little Slack

That's right, I'm talking to you, self. You need to cut yourself a little slack.

Two weeks ago I came to the decision that I just couldn't keep going the way things were. I had four or five papers/essays coming up in the next 3 weeks, my boss was quitting, and I am trying to prepare for a trip overseas to get married. Something had to give.

I didn't want to, but I decided that the best decision would be to ask my instructors for an incomplete  so I could have extra time to finish my work, all the while feeling that I had failed because I should be able to handle everything--what is wrong with me.

Really? If I was talking to a friend I would be telling them that they are only human and they need to take care of themselves, too. Why don't I cut myself the slack I cut others?

This last week was really stressful at work, and I think a semester's worth of yuck was tipped over by this week and I cried at my desk on Friday.

So, I really need a break and when I come back, I am going to do my darnedest, since I can't do anything about some stuff, to just make the best of things.

In the meantime, I am going to enjoy my time overseas, enjoy my new adventure in life, and work on finishing up this semester's work.
