The most difficult thing I’ve come to realise is trying to still be good to those who only do you wrong. When I was younger it would make me curious how my parents were always good to those, even if they were wronged. I grew up with such morals and have been taught that no matter what happens, always be kind.
How do you maintain a balance? I am a sensitive soul, in hind sight, I always have been. I feel deeply about everything, whether it be happiness, sadness, confusion, anger, and anxiousness (can’t think of any more words to describe emotions).
You may ask, what is a sensitive soul? Well for one, don’t be fooled by such individuals, they may be sensitive but they are far from weak. They have the ability to put aside their own needs and feelings to cater to those that need a boost. Their ability to feel deeply makes them great empaths thus helps them truly understand what the other person is going through. Often times people are unable to express how they feel and the sensitive soul will verbalise those feelings to the point, which shocks some people, sometimes. The emotions they feel are their strength as they allow themselves to feel deeply, thus making them able to handle a situation and controlling their feelings better than those who brush their emotions to the side. They can handle more than most because they’re used to feeling more than most.
Being a sensitive soul also gives you a hightened intuition in someways because they notice everything, even the most minor details such as a change of expression on someone’s face, which may have only lasted for a second. At times when logic makes no sense, their souls are able to come up with answers that does make sense. However there is a flip side, often such people have insecurities that cloud their intuition, as I have experienced many times and I think it’s important to listen to your intuition. Even if your mind tells you otherwise, listen to your inner voice, before the voice disappears forever.
Being around a sensitive soul, you will notice that they give you their undivided attention (to be fair sometimes people drag on a story longer than it should be and I get distracted). They can judge a situation and give you what you need. Even if it is just someone to sit quietly with. There is comfort in silence.
They have compassion on a deeper level and have the ability to move the world. Their kindness shines through their face and you can feel the genuine love they have to offer. They have so much to give and the ability to give wholeheartedly without being worn down. If anything the giving fuels them, especially when they see the joy on people’s faces. That is priceless.
I’m also a sensitive soul but I think I might be too much of a sensitive soul! I sometimes spend a lot of time thinking about people and their problems, or even news stories; certain news stories just stick with me and I struggle to let them go long after the world has moved on. I do think the most important things are, as in Cinderella, to have courage and be kind. I struggle with the courage part but I know I do my best to be kind. I would never harm anyone or anything intentionally.
I do find it difficult to find a balance though, so if you find a way let me know!

I think the balance is probably achieved by detaching ourselves from everything for a little bit. I get restless when I’m overwhelmed and so I escape to solitude and it really does help recharge me. Travel always helps as it redirects your mind away from the things that’s hurting you.
It’s my favourite adaptation of Cinderella and I loved the lesson it taught. Helped reinforce my morals too. I love a happy ending 😍❤😊
Wow, I love that line about handling more than most because of being accustomed to feeling more than most! I am a sensitive soul myself and understand about feeling and handling more than the average person does, but I’d never thought about it that way. Also, this post is some good, insightfull writing.
