More Alive

I was annoyed at myself for being a sensitive person; it’s so exhausting. Until one day, it occurred to me that through sensitivity, I get a richer experience of the world, i.e., I feel more alive.

As much as it sucks, it’s still a thousand times better than just being numb.

It’s entirely up in our heads; turning the table is a difficult mind game, but a game worth playing.
