For the very sensitive among us

Saturday, August 16, 2008

Remember that you can only take so much. You may think that you can do a very long day of working and talking; and go to a concert or the theater that night. Maybe for a day or two; but you need rest, space, time to recuperate. To process all the images that are in your brain; to feel all the feelings that were put aside so that you could forge ahead. To think, quietly, to yourself about what happened. To listen to your inner voice. To find your true center.

Some of us live alone precisely because too much human interaction is wearing. We love our fellow humans! but they take up psychic space. And we need time away from them to appreciate them. Quiet; space; time alone. These are essentials, necessities for those of us who are the very sensitive.
