Someone gave me the best advice

by CrescentMelissa

He said, “If you don’t like it, just stop.”. This was in reference to running. I was killing myself, literally breaking bones and tearing muscles and being ridiculous. And I was just worn out. And he gave me this gift. It is so simple, but so hard. For me anyway. I always want to push harder, be the best, strongest, prettiest, most perfect ever. But at some point the joy is stripped and I don’t even know what am I doing. Saw this picture today. Life is simple. Why do us fussy little humans insist on complicating all of it?
