This collection of quotes are all about feeling like you’ve got a tired soul. They are both empathizing, but also encouraging – because it’s important to remember that ‘this too shall pass.’
What does it mean to be ‘soul tired’?
When you’re soul tired, it feels like your whole being is exhausted.
Every part of you is weighed down and sluggish. Your mind is foggy, your emotions are flat, and your body aches.
It might be hard to find joy in anything, and sometimes, even basic tasks feel insurmountable.
If you’re soul tired, you’re not alone.
Many of us go through periods of intense fatigue, both physical and mental. It can be caused by a number of things, including stress, burnout, grief, and trauma. And while it can be difficult to cope with, there are ways to ease the burden and find some relief.
If you’re soul tired, give yourself permission to rest.
Take time for yourself, even if it’s just a few minutes each day. Do things that make you happy and be gentle with yourself.
Most importantly, seek out support from friends and loved ones, and talk to a professional if you need help.
