Being an Emotional Trainwreck Sucks...But What Can You Do!

My Life as a Highly Sensitive Soul
...as told in quotes, because sometimes 
they explain things better than I can.
Besides it is like they can read my mind.

“Highly sensitive people are too often
 perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. 
To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, 
it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate.
 It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that 
has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. 
There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. 
Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ 
or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what 
keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. 
Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.” 
- Anthon St. Maarten

Yes...but and a big but...the mind will always win if you attempt to force...it will step aside and retreat if you simply replace your thoughts and focus on your breathing...

I am on the road to self-acceptance.
Even though I long for a break from
 what I feel and just want to be numb
 for a short while I will never
 apologize for who I am.

I will soon be at peace with myself.
I am a work in progress.
And well, yes,I am kind of a hot mess,
 a trainwreck at times

(okay, most of the time).

And of course, my depression
 and anxiety are always present,
 lurking in the depths of my mind.


It is an illness I live with everyday.
It has made me who I am today.

I AM ME.
I am the woman who cares way too
much about people who may 
not give a damn about me.
I choose love every time.

My life is always chaotic, and I struggle with daily life,
  especially with my constant need
 to feel every damn thing, yet


I am learning to accept my heightened sensitivity.
Some days it is a gift, other days not so much.

I know that self-acceptance is vital not only
to my well-being but to my future mental health.
Self-acceptance starts will self-love.
I am learning to love myself, flaws and all, 
then everything else will fall into place.
No apologizes, I am who I am.
And No, permission is not needed from others to be myself.
