You who sometimes feels that this world that moves so fast and sounds so loud and feels so intense and is just too much to take in and too much to process and too much to be a part of.
You who sometimes feels that your heart can’t possibly break open any wider – can’t possibly feel any more pain and sorrow and love and joy or any other intense emotion. You who sometimes feels that you may burst completely open at times.
You who can be so easily overwhelmed and so easily overloaded and so easily overextended and so easily overjoyed and so easily overemotional.
You who can cry so easily and feel so much so quickly. You who has the ability to carry another’s pain as if it were your own. You who sees the world through a lens of love and can’t understand how everyone doesn’t do the same.
You who loves so, so deeply. You who cries so, so hard. You who feels so, so much.
You who has such beautiful gifts to offer to the world. You who absolutely positively are a gift for the world. You who loves so fully and feels so much and is so present and so able to take another’s emotion and process it as your own.
You who can take the world’s pain into your heart, spin it all around, and let it flow out as love, love, and more love.
You who wonders sometimes if you are truly able to do this – to be a part of this world and not withdraw from it completely.
You who looks around and sometimes feels like you just don’t fit in – like no one could possibly feel as intensely or see things as clearly.
You who are sensitive.
I say thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I am so glad that you’re here. I am so grateful that you’re a part of this world. I am so very happy that your beautiful soul feels so much and cares so much and loves so much. I am so, so glad.
Sensitive souls are so, so needed. You collectively give the world a heartbeat. You collectively give the world a soul. You collectively give the world compassion and empathy.
You do this. You really do.
I know that it’s not always easy. I know it.
And I know that it sometimes feels impossible to continue showing up and staying present and being here – fully here.
But you must. Truly, you must.
Your beautiful heart and sweet, sensitive soul is part of the collective heartbeat.
We need you. The world needs you.
