The High Dose of Sensitivity

Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, NOT weakness

Have you ever been in situations where you couldn’t say ‘NO’ to help someone, even if it meant to put yourself in a difficult position?

Do you talk politely to people who have never missed a chance to put you down?

If your answer is YES, then you are a Sensitive person.

Well, being sensitive is not one’s choice, it’s a trait one is born with. It can be inherited and sometimes people become sensitive due to an incident or experience that they’ve had. Even their environment can contribute to it. The thing about sensitive people is that, even the smallest thing said or done to them, can cause a great impact on them, be it positive or negative.

Dr. Elaine Aron, in her book, ‘The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive when the World Overwhelms You’, explains sensitivity as a personality trait and not a disorder. According to her definition, sensitive people have a sensitive nervous system.

The population comprises of 15%-20% of sensitives, but this small number compared to the rest 80% have much stronger senses. The highly sensitive person processes everything around them in a much deeper way. They feel more, ponder upon things more and understands things and concepts in a much better way.

Psychologists, Dr. Elaine Aron and husband, Arthur Aron came up with the terms SPS ( Sensory Processing Sensitivity ) and HSP ( Highly Sensitive Person ) in the mid- 1990s.

When Humans Lose Humanity

There is a lot of difference between HUMAN BEING and BEING HUMAN and a few understand it. It would make a difference if we all understood it.

We are humans and we ought to live by the principle of humanity. But, being cruel and bad and being inconsiderate is the new trend.

So, I would say that we humans are losing the whole purpose of our existence and are heading towards being more inhuman, who don’t understand the difference between good and bad.

Lets just take a moment to think about all the things we have done that have caused a deep distress to others. Be it out of anger or because we were not in a good mood.

           Why don’t we do an exercise….

*List out all the people who you have not treated well, inconsiderate of the reason.

*Go and talk to them in a polite manner. Not to pretend to be a saint but do this as a part of a duty of your human existence, so that one day you too have something to feel happy about.

*And, I’m not talking about a particular time, but I’m saying make it a habit to be polite and be considerate towards your fellow beings.

The feeling of being kind and thoughtful fetches you so much happiness, you wouldn’t want anything more than that. It makes you feel happy from deep within your heart and soul to the extent that it makes you feel that you really don’t need anything else to keep you happy.

Understanding people can be very tough. I mean, everyone doesn’t have the capacity to accept different ideas, everyone don’t think the same, everyone’s brain works differently.
The generation before us, was made to understand religion, and festivals and sacrifices.This generation is made to understand the stars, and the cosmos, humans and their emotions and everything that has a deeper meaning to its existence.

Human psychology can be out of the universe for some, while for the others, it can be their sole purpose in life.
And, most of the times, why we don’t understand people and their opinions, are because, we don’t listen. Most of us have such a poor understanding ability because we often tend to put down opinions and views without even listening to them. 
Its very difficult to find people in this era who listen to you and understand you without judging. So, a shout out to all the lovely sweeties, don’t ever let people who understand you, slip away, no matter what. 
Trust me, they are very precious

Still feeling Love

As the stars light up the sky,
I wanna kiss you good night.
And be the one you see,
In your dreams tonight.

Wanna know how it feels,
To be lying next to you.
And watching the clear night sky,
As we whisper I LOVE YOU.

And of all the feelings that I have felt,
This is the best one to me.
To have someone to hold and to love
Would be as good as breathing.

Wanna have you in my arms,
Forever till the end.
And happily ever after,
Together our life we could spend.

No doubt that eyes are the windows to a person’s soul, but how many of us actually look into someone’s eyes and try to read them?

Some might say, what can you read in someone’s eyes? Its not a book with pages.

But take my word on this.   There is a lot you can learn about someone when you look into their eyes. Their entire story lies in there. You only need to learn the art of reading them first. Then, there….., the story unfolds.

Someone once said, “If you love someone’s eyes, you will love the person forever, for the eyes are the only part of the human body that never grows old”.💖💖💖

The fairy tale Inspired Life

Image result for fairy tale inspired life quotes

Sometimes stories do inspire you to a lot of extent, that you start believing that there exists a world which has all the elements from it. I personally grew up watching fairy tales and all the love and magic and kindness and of course Prince Charming. And I still find it fascinating that I still do believe in it. And why won’t I?? It makes me feel happy and it makes me kind, and the hope that love and magic does exist and soon I shall find my Prince Charming.

I feel that more than handing young people with electronic gadgets, they should be given stories. Stories that will inspire them, motivate them, drive them towards doing something kind and having courage and having patience for the right things to come along.
Who knows how it might help someday to change the world into a better place.

 

 

The Feel that Feels so Magical

                             Touch that feels so pure,
Eyes that feel like magic
Presence that makes you happy
Thought that sets you on fire.

How can you fight the feeling,
When it is so irresistible?
Why does it seem so beautiful
When its not even real?

Image result for expressing your love quotes

                             It gets very awkward
When you catch me staring at you.
I kinda wanna walk up
And say that I love you.

In every inch of me
I feel your presence there.
If only love could be
So much fair.
