Afraid to feel?
Does it feel foolish to you, impossible even, that your ‘feeling too much’ isn’t that at all?
Can you, even the tiniest of moments between the fear, understand that when you truly recognize what it is you’re feeling and from whence it comes, you’ll know it is the highest expression of love there is?
That is what being an empath is–the highest expression of love there is. The capacity, without a word being said, to say, “I feel your pain”.
Can you wrap your head, maybe even your heart, around the notion that you’ve been bestowed the honor of someone, likely without any awareness, is trusting you with their deepest hidden.
Their pain is not your memory nor will your memory relive the moments that bore it.
Feel it. Cry it. Shout at it. Love it. Love you.
Feel them. Cry for them. Shout at them “I love you”.
Be not afraid.
