As Sensitive Souls, we often get told by those around us, whether it be family, peers, the media or society at large, to ‘stop being so sensitive!’ or that ‘you feel too much!’
People who are not sensitive, often don’t understand, how something that may seem quite small in their eyes, can actually affect us or hurt us on a deep level. They may view us as being ‘irrational’, ‘dramatic’ and ‘overly-emotional’ when we express our deep feelings.
I know from my own personal experience in life, and as a Sensitive Soul, I have often hidden my deep feelings from others. Most of the time saying ‘I’m ok, I’ll be fine’ when deep down, I’m really not. I’m actually feeling SO much and with the whirlwind of emotions going on within my being…
I’m actually feeling damn uncomfortable!
We as Sensitive Souls rarely want to share this though. We’re often ashamed of our depth. Ashamed of our ever-changing emotions. Frightened of being judged yet again, for being too sensitive or for feeling too much. So on we go… pretending… hiding the deep layers we have within our being.
Last week, I had a week that tested me on many levels, particularly emotionally! All I really wanted to do was hide in my room, curl up in my bed, and not leave for a week.
However, as the Universe has it, I was guided to a local weekend market and there I met, sat down with and received a beautiful gift, a gem of wisdom from a local Indigenous elder. His message was simple, yet profound:
Just be vulnerable.
Yes! This is it! The answer is simple…All we need to do is be ourselves. What we have, this gift of ‘feeling deeply,’ is actually a huge gift to this world!
‘Feeling deeply’ enables us to tune into another. Really feel them. Understand them. Empathise with them. And it is from this place, where we can facilitate healing.
And how special is that.
So next time we go on to judge ourselves for ‘feeling too much,’ just remember the beauty there is in carrying this special gift. And just be that amazing, ‘deeply feeling self’ that you are.
With much love & acceptance,
