I have gone through extremes in life of feeling nothing and feeling everything. My normal, healthy self is to feel everything – and to feel it, how I would describe, as deeply. I don’t know how others feel. I have never walked around and experienced life in someone else’s body, so I have no way of knowing that for certain…
But things affect me. It is hard for me to see and hear things without feeling it.
When I was in an unhealthy state of mind, I felt nothing. I had to consciously work to make myself feel things again. I was intentionally attempting to feel. It started with small, physical things, just getting in touch with what was around me and what my body was feeling in response to it.
My favorite thing was feeling the sun on my skin, and to this day, it is my favorite feeling.
I am still learning to balance the two.
All she wanted was the sun on her skin and to learn a balance in feeling nothing and feeling everything.
