Omg she is so sensitive? Don’t cry because people are going to think you are weak? Just get over it !!You need to get tougher skin? Why are you so anxious ? LOL you look frazzle.
I have heard it all. This weekend my emotions were on over drive due to my lady time. Everything was under my skin, and have been dub the name bipolar Alayna. In addition, I was told that I don’t say certain things to you because I know you can’ take it. **Side eye** That it I can take it anymore. LOL I can take it anymore I am so tired of it all. I tired of people looking at me funny because I am breaking down in tears because your tone is off. I do not like when people laugh at me because I am becoming anxious in a large crowd. I know some people just do not understand it so I am going to explain it the best way I can. My goal is to get you all to understand how people like me feel and to drop the stigma of having emotions equal weakness. Sidenote: it is a lot of articles about high sensitvity and empath. Where was all of this when I was in high school LORD !! lol
I am a highly sensitive person and a empath.
High sensitive people are easily overwhelmed by busy days, we withdraw from the world fast, we have an issue with tone, feel very deeply, cry easily, have a hard time with decision making and often told don’t take thing so personal! How can you tell somebody not to take things personal when they literally feel everything? Easily said then done. Lastly, Sometimes we have the tendencies with “going along with the flow” because we stay far away from conflict. This is life and mind of highly sensitive person. So take a step back before you past judgement on us and say we are crazy.
First and foremost because we feel so deeply we are highly intuitive and we are more empathetic. I think the world needs more empathy. Being sensitive does not mean you are weak. I say you are very in tune with your emotions and you are not afraid to show them . You are passionate! You simply can not shy away from who you are. You have to express your feelings. That how we were creative.
Let me use myself as an example. I have dealt with a lot of unsettling things in school, with guys, in life in general. I can say that I am prone to anxiousness due to those things. But with all those things happening to me I still keep it all together. I am a strong resilient woman. I can still remain positive, I still smile and can still enjoy my life. I have times where my emotions wreak havoc but they are the ending factor to it all. Does that sound like a weak person ? Hell No !!
How do I over come being a highly sensitive person
I am always going be sensitive person and empath. I have come to terms with how God made me. But I do have some tips on how I counteract all of this.
First I give all my problems to God. I say prayer is a major key for me. If you are not super religious that cool too, meditation is also a major key or you can just go to tip 2
I have to get away from it all. So I withdraw from the world. I have to go to my comfort zone, which is my home. That is my quiet place to go to calm down. If you at work find a quiet meeting room or nock to collect yourself to.
Get plently of sleep
Yoga helps me deal with the all the stress that comes along with being a sensitive. Alot of time we create stress out of thin air. So I choose yoga to release it all through
Embrace who you are
Remember you are not weak. You are strong !!
