A Bath

I’m not sure why, but when I find myself paralyzed from depression, all I can bring myself to do is sit in a tub full of hot water.

I’m not sure if it’s some kind of symbolic ideal that I’m subconsciously relating to my mental state or whether not it actually improves my head space. All I know is that it just seems… necessary.

I sometimes sit for over an hour, light a candle, and just tune out. Maybe that’s it. Maybe, even though only temporary, it’s a way to effectively escape from the monster that is my mental state.
