So...someone posted something Facebook the other day and it said: Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive?
There was, of course, more in this little phrase about other types of people. This sentence just struck me and I've been thinking about it ever since.
As pretty much everyone probably knows - I'm a fairly sensitive person. I probably cry more than the average person - even more now than ever. I feel things so deeply - and I am generally very aware of everything going on. I am very upset to find out people don't like me - especially without a reason.
I love so deeply as well - I give my all to my relationships - doing everything I possibly can to make the other person happy. I'm certainly no angel (ha ha), but I also cannot stay mad at the people I love. It is actually quite annoying to me that I can't stay mad (I have tried).
From the phrase above (I'm sure there is no study that has been done or anything on the matter - I kinda looked) I'm wondering if my sensitivity is what has led me to where I am. Part of me says - well what if I wasn't sensitive - would I have not been put through this horrible trial in my life? If so - I'd be as cold-hearted as they come. I wouldn't have had the chance to marry Dave then though - so I can't wish that was the case. He certainly was annoyed by my sensitivity, but I think he appreciated as well. I'll never know for sure I guess.
I certainly didn't think I'd ever survive this rotten hand I've been dealt. My kids keep me going though - and Dave wouldn't have wanted me to just give up. I may not know what is in store for me, but I'm certainly going to try to give them the best that I possibly can.
I I really don't think I'm strong - at all. I just think I'm surviving and doing what needs to be done. I hope Dave would be proud and appreciate what I'm doing - especially for our kids.
I love you to the moon and back Dave - and I always will!
