Some people feel more than others
…. and i can confirm that some days you just feel like you are going to implode, have an anxiety attack, and spin off the planet all at once.
But with feeling more; comes feeling more:
more human kindness;
more subtleties in the day that make this world a truly wonderful and amazing place.
A jog in a quiet lane becomes a living miracle as spring explodes,
a smile from your partner like a dart of profound love through your being,
your niece and nephew shouting your name like the best thing ever,
a new-born foal something to reduce you to happy tears,
a thank you from someone something truly profound
… and a hug all that it takes to help you get up and face another day.
Yes it sucks to feel a lot; but it’s so worth it when you learn to see the beauty of all around you…
“A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.
a touch is a blow,
a sound is a noise,
a misfortune is a tragedy,
a joy is an ecstasy,
a friend is a lover,
a lover is a god,
and failure is death.
– Pearl Buck”
If this strikes a bell my article on the “Navigating life as a highly sensitive person.“
