Tiredness - a state of the mind?
I guess so. Because, there have been days when I didn't sit for minute, ran around the place, did one thing or the other; but felt hardly tired at the end of it all. Of course, I was enjoying all that I had been doing. It led me to think of the adage: "It's all in the mind."
What about the perception of others?
There have been occasions when my friends, colleagues, have told me: "You look tired", when actually I wasn't feeling so! Conversely, there have also been times, when I was depressed, but my looks didn't seem to say so!
Are there two distinct states of being: physical and mental; often one not reflecting the state of the other? The inner self and the outer self?
Are appearances indeed deceptive? Always? Often? Sometimes? Very rarely?
