Just be the more sensitive person who spends time grappling with emotions alien to most people. The phrase "letting go" will be the reminder that it is perfectly fine and beautiful to succumb to our emotions. It is alright to not think rationally once in a while. Coming to this conclusion, can be the most self-affirming, paradigm shifts you can ever experience. You can see your sensitivity as a gift in its full glory. It's where your empathy, creativity and intuition would lie. Learning to see that as a positive trait instead of a weakness can be a complicated self-journey in its own, but it'll teach you a lot. For that, you have to relinquish control to let your emotions take over your healing process.
Very often, instead of just allowing yourself to feel a certain emotion, be it jubilation, sadness, anger or irritation, we subject ourselves to an overwhelmingly fruitless loop of analysing why we are feeling a certain way. More often than not, it results in self-judgement to control the narrative of our life. But, in order to gain that final control over your emotions, you first have to lose it. You allow yourself to be fully human in the process of this catharsis than forcing a false narrative onto yourself to rationalize it. There's enormous freedom in that. It'll help you remain soft, and there is no one stronger and more powerful than someone who continues to stay soft in a world that hasn't always been kind to them. The healing would be a slow process, but one day, it'll happen; you'll feel free of those emotions that have troubled you all your life. ~@theliteraryomnivore .
