the good word collective: rest.

"We were crushing each other, and we were each being crushed.  It was suffocating, this expectation to be perfect and holy and wonderful all the damn time.  We loved each other, and we even liked each other, but there were times where we both kind of wished to die and finally end the constant pressure..."

Titus 3:3-7
For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.

7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
