Thinking about the world today can bring about mixed emotions for me. On one hand I see it for its enchantment and uncovered mysteries and the countless places I want to visit and experience. On the other I see the illusions and confusion. I see the ill hearted and lost souls projecting on and hurting others. In a way, I guess I think too much! I always have. I have always had a deeper sense and knowing about people and situations. I’ve always been emotional, reactive, and a “thinker.” These characteristics have worked for me but also against me. I have used it as a defense mechanism as I went about judging others and staying emotionally disconnected rather than creating boundaries and loving from a distance if need be. I’ve used it to over analyze and stay indecisive as opposed to finding a solution and moving forward confidently. Too add more salt to the wound (hence I think too much) I would beat myself up for not possessing the traits opposite of my own. I thought the people I observed who seemed aloof and carefree to life and toward others were so much better than me. Why could I not be like them? Why did I have to think so much? Care so much? Why did everything have to be so damn deep! But my miracle happened. Through long nights and gray days, better known as my spiritual journey, I found me.I learned to embrace these traits and even found some were related to my spiritual gifts as an Empath and Intuitive. I believe my creator did not make any mistakes on me and I doubt any were made on you. Do not give up on your journey of self-discovery. Learning to love and embrace YOU in the end, will all be worth it. Until then It is all one day at a time. Xo
P.S. Two great reads if some of the traits I described above resonate with you are "The Realms of Earth Angels" by Doreen Virtue and "Codependent No More" by Melody Beattie.
