"Give your stress wings and let it fly away."
~ Terri Guillemets ~
And yet, they both require recovery time, and they both strengthen us and build our endurance, so in that way they are the same.
Nonetheless, I would rather lift weights than carry an emotional load. It can be, and so often is, seemingly more than we can bear.
I have compassion for the way that emotional strain puts demand on my soul.
