So… the house didn’t work out. The inspection was the stuff nightmares were made of, and the seller I think was hoping that I wouldn’t be smart enough to hire an inspector of my own. He refused to address any of the issues, so I walked away from the deal, and it’s back to the drawing board.
In other news, I also start some intensive physical therapy soon to deal with an issue with my leg. Those closest to me know what’s going on, but I’ve been struggling with… Well, with allowing myself to step away from some of the things that are adding stress to my life (in real life and in Second Life). I always feel like because I have things going on with my health, I have more to prove. Like I want to assure the people around me that I’m still a capable human being, so sometimes, I put up with more crap than I would usually because I don’t want someone to label me incompetent.
This weekend, I let the powers that be know that I’d be taking a major step back from things for at least a few weeks in wake of the new PT schedule and everything else going on. And you know what? As stressful as the idea of that conversation was for me, actually having that conversation felt so good. I can’t really put into words how it felt to have that weight lifted off my shoulders and know that I don’t have to worry about proving myself or taking on too much in the coming weeks. I was giving myself permission to take the time I needed away from things that frankly, I don’t need to be worrying about right now.
And you know what? It feels great.
Sometimes, we just owe it to ourselves to be honest and do what we need to do to take care of number one. And the truth is, there are going to be people who don’t like that. And those are the people that you don’t need in your life. The people that matter, the people who love you… they’ll be there cheering you on and helping you to put things back together again. They’ll be there because they love you, and because they recognize how important it is for you to rest. So… moral of the story? Do what you need to do, and don’t feel bad about it.
