I know. Same here. I said what I said because I see it in myself too. Didn't mean to say it's not understandable. Just saying that, for me, it's not always helpful. Hope that makes sense.
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
