I see you, darlin'.
I see you working really hard every day trying to manage all the things on your to do list while also making time for the people in your world who you care about.
I see your kind, gentle, and open heart as you move through your day to day activities where you take yet another call from someone who needs to talk just for a minute; when you know that means an hour.
I see you offering to help even though your plate is more than full.
I see you privately dealing with the things, situations, and people which are creating or contributing to challenges, stress, and or pain in your life right now.
I see you.
I see that you’re trying to balance so many things that you may feel like you’re the person balancing and spinning plates at the fair.
I wanted to tell you that the efforts, kindness, and support you share with the world has not gone unnoticed.
In fact, you touch lives every day just by being yourself.
You may not hear it frequently enough, so let me tell you again, you matter.
As a highly sensitive person it’s really important for you to make time in your very full schedule to s.l.o.w. down so you can catch your breath and come back to center.
When you’re going all the time without taking a true break; you can begin to feel:
- Worn out
- Taken Advantage Of
- Disconnected from Your True Self
- Like the Joy is Missing from Your Life
- Physical, Mental/Emotional, and or Spiritual Pain
Many highly sensitive people experience these feelings regularly and over time it can be really overwhelming and sometimes it can lead to health challenges.
If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone.
There’s several things that you can do to help shift this experience for you; including but not limited to:
- Taking a Breather, Literally (for 15 seconds or more take a breath in through your nose and out through your mouth to help release tension and stress from your body.)
- Place Boundaries around communication with others, an hour after you wake up and an hour before you go to sleep. (No texting, talking, or email.)
- Get outside into nature
- Listen to soft music
- Learn to Say No to demands on your time and your life. (Saying no to things and people that aren’t a fit for you allows you to say Yes to you.)
- Release people and situations, including groups that are no longer uplifting or supportive for you. This may mean releasing the fake “friend/s” who only contact you when they want something from you. This may mean releasing family members too.
- Allow yourself to receive, even if it seems small, like a coffee, allow yourself to receive.
- Rest when you feel guided even if you “could” be getting something else done.
- Renegotiate your priorities and boundaries in your life so you are actively taking care of yourself, daily. (Even if it’s in small segments of time.)
- Make sure that your day to day activities match the goals or vision you have for your life.
- If things don’t match, making changes will move you in the right direction and help you to feel more aligned with yourself.
- Sign up for a healing treatment of your choosing to help your body, rest, restore, and renew.
One of the biggest challenges for highly sensitive people is that they forget to take care of themselves because they think they can put it off for one more day. The truth is that you must invest in your overall health and well being daily so that you can continue to support the people around you while also enjoying your life.
It is possible to love and support others in your world while taking good care of yourself and enjoying your life at the same time.
It can start with you taking a nice long deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth….good.
Allowing everything that feels tight or tense, to easily and effortlessly release from your mind and body now…beautiful.
Keep taking nice long, deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth.
