I am weary. Eighteen hour workdays, lack of any type of support from family or friends for the toughest thing I've ever attempted in my life. My eyes droop, my attention wanders and I feel easily annoyed by the smallest thing.

From inside I hear a solid voice. Be a man, it tells me. Depend on no mood, walk it off. Are you tired? You'll feel more so someday. Are you hurting? Someday you'll feel pain so bad you will remember this moment fondly. No one understands what you're going through? THEY DO NOT NEED TO. You have two feet, stand on them.

A better phrase might be "Be human". Ignore the emotion and suffering that would cause a beast to run or fight.

I am as weak as I allow myself to be.
