TO ALL WHO FEEL LONELIEST IN A CROWD

Advertisements

To all whose storms rage within, even when the sea is calm.

To all for whom life is challenging and ease comes with great difficulty.

To all those who wonder why each hill seems so steep when others scale them effortlessly.

I feel you.

If you are an over-thinker, an under-enjoyer and a worrier, life can be a struggle.

If you were born facing against the wind and you just don’t know how to be swept along like everyone else.

I feel you.

If you often catch yourself. wondering how, HOW, others seem to breeze through their days – even when times are tough – I feel you.

Switching off an over-active imagination is a skill which is hard won. Learning to ‘go with the flow’ and ‘take each day as it comes’ can seem as unrealistic as learning to fly.

But unlike flying, it is possible.

The first step is to acknowledge that you feel detached and at odds with the world, that your sunny disposition is a tiring act and that your fears engulf you when you least expect it.

Admit it, accept it, embrace it.

It is who you are but it need not define you.

The sensitive heart and the deep soul of you are wonderful qualities to be proud of.

Go easy on yourself, your load is heavy enough, but with each new day, try to chip away at the fear and the worry bit by bit.

It is there to protect you, not to stop you.

You deserve a calm sea every now and again, you have weathered enough storms.

To all for whom life can feel like the highest mountain, remember you are only supposed to climb it, not carry it – and you are supposed to enjoy the view at every step.

It’s really something.
