At times I find my best self far away from people.

I used to feel like there was something wrong in feeling this way.

So I started to whisper to myself… “maybe there isn’t”.

I am this – an introvert.

An empath.

A highly sensitive person.

I am me.

Often I need to go places where I can retreat into myself, undistracted by the emotions and demands of others.

Where I am the only one creating – with only my noise, my thoughts and my decisions.  It restores me for the other part of my life… the one where I care for others and feel their feelings so deeply.  The one, a hasty life, where my heart swells, becomes heavy with love and leaves little room for my own thumping heart beat that demands such attension.

So I spend this wonderful time alone.

To you, sweet girl, know that it’s good to go in different directions when you need to.

To retreat.

To find companionship in your own thoughts.

Feel only your own heart.

You get to choose what fills you with life, and what part of your life needs to be filled.
