I am a remarkably i n t e n s e person.
I think I have learned so many times that this intense sensitivity is not acceptable anywhere–at home, in the work place, or with friends–that fear floods whenever I believe I have accidentally shown my cards to someone that I absolutely do not want to run away from me. Someone I want to approve of me. Someone I want to like me, love me, hear me, see me, be with me.
This is my gift.
It is not something that I need to keep running away from.
Stay here, good wolf. Stay still.
Just keep being you, it’s safe now.
