How did it all get so heavy?

I used to stand up so tall

There’s only so much I can carry

Before I fall

~ Excerpt from “Heavy”, by Delta Goodrem

Stress is beyond a lack of coping resource,

it is also about how long we are immersed in this lack.

People talk about having a cup half full or empty,

when the matter is about holding on to the cup.

Sometimes the best closure is to let it go

and set ourselves free.
