Everyone has a fight or flight response. It’s quite handy when we get in dangerous situations.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our pulse quickens,breathing shallows, adrenaline courses through our veins.
We’re ready for the saber tooth tiger 🐅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
OR in my case: ready to stand in a room full of people, I’m not certain about, who behave opposite to what they feel, most aren’t comfortable with my stand back and observe nature and almost everyone needs someone to be different to feel better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ugh. That sums up 3/4 of my life in fight or flight.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nothing gets past me, and I had maxed adrenals to show for it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t change how I’m made and wouldn’t if I could. I’m intuitive. I know what people need to get them through, or to breakthrough. I’ve been told many times. “I have a gift”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I agree, I do. But if I’m not mindful it comes with a price. I know things on a deeper level, I know when and what to say and to whom, and I know when authenticity is amiss. I know.
I sense and feel X 1000. Bigger, deeper, before, sometimes years before. Its alot and if I don’t care for my nervous system it’s taxing.
I can’t change my gifts, I can’t change the world. What I can do is build resilience, and that includes a self care routine uniquely made for a blessed HSP like me.
