"When you're feeling low, having someone stop you and say 'You're a good person,' and cheer you on, just having someone who roots for you, that's enough to let you catch your breath." - From the Korean drama "My Mister"


Life is tough for everyone. When life and stress have you feeling breathless, it's time to pause. If you find yourself in a slump, even if no one else tells you, tell yourself, "You're a good person." Try to be kind to others, including being kind to yourself. Today, let's talk about taking a break.

Happiness and sadness are incomparable. Your "little sadness" might be something others can't bear. So, recognizing the immeasurability of emotions is the first step to giving your mind a rest. Don't tell others, "It's nothing, don't worry about it," and don't say it to yourself either. Because happiness and sadness cannot be quantified. If you find something hard to bear, then it's hard for you.

If the body can get sick, so can the mind. Sometimes, it's not just a matter of "feeling down," it might be a hormonal imbalance in the body. At times like these, don't forget to seek help. If you don't want to take medication, consulting a counselor might help. If you don't want to talk to strangers, you can confide in close family members, ask them to take notes, and accompany you to the doctor.

Psychological assistance is just like physical assistance. If you break a leg, you might need a wheelchair or crutches. You can live without them, but it will significantly affect your life and recovery. So, don't treat relying on aids as an excuse for not taking medication. Maybe you can bravely say, "I don't need aids; I can get through this on my own." But life will be difficult as a result. It's even more so when your mind is unwell.

Finally, remind yourself that life doesn't have to be a certain way, and there's no one path to the life you want. Take each day at your own pace, rest when you're tired, seek help when you need it, and then keep moving forward. The people around you will walk with you.
