If you’re a DM reading this, I’m writing to give you permission to take a break if you feel like you need it right now.
It gets tough sometimes, I know. You’re spending hours preparing for the game and running it. You’re burdened with dealing all the people issues, and some of you are even expected to schedule the game week after week.
Be kind to yourself. Take a break to recharge. You’re a player too so it’s paramount that you are having fun and not burning out. Go read a book, play a video game, turn off your group’s chat for a week. Let them miss you for a few days.
Take care out there. We’re in this for the long run so please, prioritise yourself first.
