Let me tell it straight.
I FEEL IT ALL.
The sadness, the injustice, the deep love, and happiness. The subtle, the loud and strong.
The whole lot.
As a kid, it looked like lots of tummy aches, a sense of fragility and the constant perceived feedback that I was just ‘too complicated’ for the world.
During my teens and early twenties it turned into friends saying I was ‘too deep’, ‘ I thought too much’ or just the general feeling that the world would overwhelm me a lot. Boyfriend breakups felt like death and happy moments felt like blissful Nirvana!
