Growing up I was labelled “high-strung” and made well aware of how bad that was. Frequently emotions would overwhelm me and I would become physically ill…every time instead of support, I would be shamed.
A turning point in my mental health journey was making the discovery that these things others consider to be flaws, are a part of me…they are not me. I am so much more!
Maybe I’m still “high-strung” and I’m proud of that because my sensitivity to emotions makes me compassionate. The world could use more compassion.
