When you’re a deep thinker, with a sensitive soul, you have a tendency to overanalyze and overthink. You don’t give yourself a break and you’re always too hard on yourself.
You take people’s words seriously, you try to interpret exactly what they meant or how they said things. You drive yourself crazy because a part of you wants to ask them why they said that and the other just doesn’t want to sound insane.
You see the world in black and white because you can’t be in the middle, you can’t settle for grey, you don’t know how to half-feel, half-love or half-live. You either give your all or you feel empty all the time. You’ve been called too many things; too sensitive, too deep, too emotional, too serious, non-chill, crazy, indecisive and my all-time favourite, an idealist. You always feel like you don’t belong. You have this inner struggle to be present in life but most of the time you don’t belong. You have this inner struggle to be present in life but most of the time you don’t really feel connected to your environment or the people around you.
You crave love most of the time but you don’t like to put yourself out there much. Your heart is fragile and hopeful so when you don’t get the affection or the love you were looking for, it breaks you. You’re always trying to find meaning behind everything. Meaning behind your pain. Meaning behind your losses. You can’t just live without trying to find answers to the questions you have.
But when you’re both a deep thinker and sensitive soul, remember this – you have something special, you have art, you have magic within you, something about this unique pairing fuels the fire within you to be someone with remembering, to do something extraordinary for the world, to use all the madness inside you and turn it into wisdom. You become an alchemist, transforming your pain and darkness into gold.
And maybe the world is too hard on you because you’re someone people look upto you and they want to know that you’ll keep on fighting. They want to know you’ll keep on trying, you’ll keep on building your own life and carving your own path because that’s what makes you special. That’s what makes you extraordinary – your ability to live when everything around you is killing you. Be your own superhero.
