This. Chills. Truth.
Your sensitivity is a gift
And while at times it might mean you feel pain
and a lot of it —
sometimes pain is simply the most appropriate response
to a world layered with illusions

We’re taught to avoid discomfort at all cost
instead of how to be with it
We are are taught vulnerability is weakness
instead of courageous
We are told we are not enough
instead of how incredibly precious our uniqueness is
And we’re taught to numb pain
instead of how to get to the source of it

Pain is here to teach us
speak to us
open us up
and remind us of what needs our attention

Don’t shut down
Step up
Get curious
Be fierce
Stay gentle
Love hard
And celebrate if you are
a terribly real thing
in a terribly false world
