The Consciousness Has Shifted...The Awakening Has Begun
Just wondering if anyone else on here is like me in the fact that they react badly to harsh words or sometimes even just blunt words and even when someone is not being mean you still react sensitively? Because I have that issue, actually I've always had this issue - I guess I was born with it, I take everything either seriously or react way too sensitively towards it.
I've been told numerous times that I'm too hypersensitive and to stop and change this, but I can't stop as it's something that's a part of me.
I've heard that its a starseed thing - especially from those from higher realms but I just wanted to clarify to make sure.
To be fair, I was not implying that insecurity is the cause of all pain. If you read that part again, I was referring specifically to pain caused by upsetting words. This pain is mind/ego based, and can be traced to insecurity/fear. So I think we're on the same page there - no disagreement :) .
Injustice is different from the defensive nature of the mind/ego. Injustice can be heart based, in contrast to the defensive ego.
And yes, you are right - understanding and empathizing with negative action doesn't justify it.
*smiles* hi musuhi <3
you said "Still, I don't understand how can I remain calm when I see it harms not only me but also people dear to me"...
i completely feel you...it hurts me much more when someone i love is hurt, than when i am.
sadly i have had way too much experience over 6 decades, of needing to learn how to handle things...but i have learned.
Imho it's a matter of eventually becoming confident and experienced enough to know when and what to say, to finish them off, once and for all. Make it as brief as possible for the most impact. Practice if you want !
in my experience, it's best in front of witnesses because bullies are cowards and will fear saying anything to you and yours in future..they'll go elsewhere for their fix.
..Or...this will also send them somewhere else if they cannot bait you : To know when to blow it off with a lingering condescending look and a raised eyebrow, and let them hang there exposing themselves to the world for what they are. *smiles*...practice in a mirror.
it's also knowing what to say, in either case, to the dear ones who are hurt... reassure them that they are deeply loved, and that the offender has private issues that have nothing to do with them...that they act like that because they may not have enough love in their lives or are jealous ...
and to move on.
lol....in fact, this reminds me of a saying i love:
"To live well is the best revenge".
My mother saw this on my fridge and snapped " what do you mean by that ?!!"
...i said " exactly what it says."
she gave me a weird look and, for once, she was speechless and unsatisfied.
"To live well is the best revenge" - what an amazing coincidence - my mum says it to me all the time, when I come to her and we talk about me feeling a thirst for revenge - it always calms me down. My dear father taught me that too. So cool you reminded me that. My mum is also in her sixties and also been through a lot - I must tell her I've met you, she'll be happy to be aware of her next soul sibling :)
Thank you, Adeomus, I feel much lighter now.
Just embrace the present moment and its small miracles, more miracles the more we appreciate the present moment it seems.
To some lottery winning is their miracle
To a child a cat is a miracle, or a houseplant ... or just being alive :-)
Thank you too
*smiles*...i like you !
and...one of my buttons is when someone keeps saying "y'understand ?"
blessings....i'm glad your niece has you.
It is mutual, Tanner.
