Long time no see, sorry about that. I’ve been really busy and I feel like I need time to create the best content for my little corner of the blogosphere. Anyway, today I want to talk about being a sensitive person because I feel like it has a big stigma around it. This post is going to be about my depression ‘journey’ And also make a few of you feel better, hopefully!
As some of you know I had depression, this lead to some very serious issues and when I felt this way I was not a sensitive person. I can’t remember being depressed. Well I can, but it seemed normal at the time, it’s only when I reflect back on what happened that I can see how bad I really was. I never laughed. I never smiled. I didn’t eat. I slept too much. I slept too little. I never realized how much I had actually changed. My anxiety caused my depression, which caused lots more things. It was pretty rubbish actually. Anyway, that depression didn’t make me cry everyday, because I accepted it for a part of who I was.
Now, recovered from depression, I am still sad. I do not say I am depressed because I feel things, good and bad, which is completely normal. Although recently the scales have been in favor of sadness over happiness, but I think well, I’m feeling fluctuating emotion which means I’m not depressed. BUT then I think, maybe this is just a different depression? Nowadays, my depression comes in waves and if I have a wave ANYTHING will make me burst into tears. Does this make me sensitive?
If you feel like this too, you and me need to remember that we are all different people, with different emotions, who act differently to things and something that may seem pathetic to someone else but it might mean a whole lot to you. It’s okay to cry and it’s okay to say ‘I’m sorry but I don’t find that funny.’ And I’m trying to take my own advice. I’m trying to focus on my own emotions and validate them as genuine. I’m trying to figure out my mindset and where to go from here.
Your feelings are important.
