Better

Stop.

I said to myself.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time trying.

Trying to be perfect.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time worrying.

Worrying about the future.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time stressing.

Stressing about what happened in the past.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time thinking.

Thinking about how things should be.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time putting pressure on myself.

Pressuring myself to always succeed.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time keeping up.

Keeping up with the latest news cycle.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time fearing.

Fearing missing out on whatever.

Stop wasting time.

Wasting time avoiding.

Avoiding my feelings.

Wasting time puts stress on my mind and body.

Self-compassion in response to my time wasters is healing.

Experiencing my feelings is healing.

Letting them go is healing.

Emotions do go when I let them go.

So I try to let them.

Some go right away.

Some need a hug first.

So those I give a hug.

Then let them go.

And I feel and function better.

Like right now.

Hi, Disappointment.

Come here.

*Hug*

Now get on outta here.

Go, be free.

That's better.
