Have you ever been called sensitive? Felt impacted by the outside world? Have you ever felt that your chest is about to burst with feelings you can’t control? It’s okay, I have felt like that too. You are not alone.
– how it felt
I had so many feelings in my childhood, mine and other people’s. It was very confusing and it made me so anxious all the time.
A lot of times I remember being okay, then the next everything was overwhelming – I didn’t know I was confusing my feelings for other people’s.
The phrase you are too sensitive was said a lot. Sometimes, it’s used to express annoyance and frustration, but other times, it’s an expression for not understanding how something makes someone else feel or how to tackle a situation. But it will always make me feel different and sad. It still triggers me, even thought I know that people don’t always intend to hurt your feelings.
How can we know how it feels if we don’t experience it ourselves?
If I feel comfortable & safe, I explain myself, try to make others understand that we can’t expect or assume, but we can learn & adjust.
What can you expect in this space?
An honest account of a person who feels a thousand feelings a day, which hopefully can comfort you and make you feel supported.
I am only going on my experiences and not someone elses. I will share situations, feelings and topics, which are relevant and what tools I used or I am learning to use.
This series will include: triggers, books, exercises for mind and body, tips, questions & so on.
feel like this is something that speaks to you and just want to agree, or you want to know more, please leave a comment or email me and I will get back to you.
I will also dig into literature that helps me cope, but if you have an urgent curiousity, check out the books by Judith Orloff. The Empath’s Survival Guide is a must.
This was the beginning. Next up, I will talk about the heart, the center of us all.
Have a lovely time until then,
