My zodiac sign is Cancer. Allegedly, we are said to be sensitive creatures, which I initially thought was a load of crap.
Sensitive skin? Maybe. Tendencies to romanticize situations? Possibly. Overwhelmed by large crowds? Sure. A deep ache when thinking of the world’s problems? Okay. But does all of that really make me sensitive?
Why, yes it does. And same for you, my beloved reader. I bet you’re sensitive, because we people find each other. In fact, I have an entire family full of our kind!
For us, life just doesn’t feel easy. We are not okay with the mediocre. We need to feel fulfilled in order to wake up in the morning, if not, life just seems wrong.
As sensitive souls, we are natural seekers. We are constantly seeking truth. Not only truth from others, but our own truth, as well.
We’re not okay with settling. Sticking to a whatever job simply because it pays well just isn’t okay for us. Marrying someone because they are a good person isn’t enough for us. Living life according to the status quo is death to us.
These are all good traits to have, right? But what happens is, we can’t always communicate this well to ourselves or others, which leaves us feeling completely alone.
Because we are sensitive that feeling is so intense that it begins to feel real, as if no one in the world understand us. What happens when we think no one understands us? We retreat into our little warm cocoons where the ugly world cannot touch us.
While that cocoon may feel warm for a bit, it quickly begins to feel like a cage that is trapping us. Within this cage, our mind swims around and around chaos until we’ve created a world within our mind that has separated ourselves from everyone else. We begin to believe, truly, that other people are totally okay, have it together, and have it all figured out. Us on the other hand? Hot mess. And maybe even without the hot.
But you guys, we created this cocoon/cage, which ultimately led to our seclusion and separation from the rest of the world. I promise you, everyone suffers. Most people do not have their shit together. And there are less people than you think judging you. Because the truth is, they’re dealing with their own stuff. So remember, we’re all in the same place.
