You are Not a Victim of Your Sensitivity – You Are Strong

World with light coming off it and a quote Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave, stay strong, we need all hands on deck, Anthon St. Maarten

It may be difficult at times to acknowledge how strong you really are. We are experiencing an extremely challenging time right now. You may be overwhelmed and feel like a victim. Even if you’re not normally highly sensitive, things are so intense you may be feeling the stress.

This post is for you if you’re feeling stressed and stretched to your limit. Here are some tips to help you become your own hero and be a warrior – the World needs your Love, Strength, and Compassion.

Empaths and HSPs are especially vulnerable to overwhelm, exhaustion, and anxiety. We’re not just feeling our own emotions, many of us are feeling the collective – the fear, sadness, grief, suffering, and chaos around the world, and we are in deep pain because we don’t know what to do to help. (Note: this isn’t true only of Empaths and HSPs – Many of us are overwhelmed and feel like victims.

“Sensitive people care when the world doesn’t because we understand waiting to be rescued and no one shows up. We have rescued ourselves, so many times that we have become self taught in the art of compassion for those forgotten.”
― Shannon L. Alder

The world needs your strength and compassion

If you’re not feeling super strong right now, it’s time to find ways to re-energize yourself. The world needs your light, your compassion, and your strength. It’s not easy, but you can do it.

You owe it to yourself and the world to stay centered and grounded, to stay in your heart. Don’t let yourself become a victim or a martyr or see only the pain. Fight your inner battle to stay present, shine your light, and be the loving, compassionate person you are. Search out the positive, the hopeful, and the uplifting.

You are NOT a Victim of your Sensitivity

Picture of turtle flailing on back being a helpless victimI’m going to address something hard right now. You are not a victim of your sensitivity. It’s not all “too much to handle”. I’ve seen many posts lately where empaths and HSPs are in serious victim mode. I have a picture in my mind of a turtle on its back, arms flailing ineffectively.

You did not come into the world to be a victim! You came here to be a way-shower. You came here to be aware of things that most people aren’t. You came to use your sensitivity and compassion to shine a light on areas that need addressing.

Are you using the fact that you’re sensitive as an excuse for cutting yourself off from others and hiding in your house? Well, that’s not fair since we’re all in our houses right now, but my point is that many of us are going back and forth between a complete emotional mess or cutting ourselves off completely.

Sensitivity, a blessing or a curse?

There are a lot of HSPs and empaths who are spending a lot of time talking about how being sensitive is a curse. They spend a lot of time thinking and talking about how hard it is, how awful the world is, and how much cruelty and pain there is. We get what we focus on and what we believe to be true. Shift your focus from watching the news to reading it. (what you watch gets in deeply because you see and feel the emotional impact.) Try subscribing to good news reports to remind you that there is good and kindness in the world. It may seem sappy at first, but you’ll feel stronger and happier when you feel how your body and mind respond. Focus on the reality you want in your life, and your sensitivity can shift from a curse to a tool you can use. Some even think it’s an unfair advantage. 

You are a Survivor. You are stronger than you know.

You are wired to feel things more deeply. Your heightened attention is part of your survival strategy. Your intuition is strong because you often unconsciously notice things and process them more deeply. You may be more sensitive to clues that other people don’t notice. You may start to go somewhere or do something and feel clear that it’s not safe. Trust that. You don’t need to know why all the time, but your fine-tuned senses will guide you. After all, as I said before, you’ve made it this far.

Step into Your Warrior Mode – You are Strong

You’ve made it this far. Think about all the things you’ve experienced so far in your life – you may have already gone through some major challenges and crises, and yet you are still standing! You are stronger than you give yourself credit for.

Ninja Turtle wearing bioelectricshield be your own hero, don't be a victimYou become what you say you are. Don’t keep telling people how weak and hopeless you are because you become a victim of your predictions. Do not let yourself be a victim. Be your own hero.

Instead of being the flailing turtle, imagine yourself as this happy turtle – enough of a shell around to be protected (the BioElectric Shield can be part of this protection) But still able to be open, standing firmly on your own two feet.

Become a Beacon of Love

Feeling compassion isn’t a weakness. It is a strength. Become a beacon of love – feel all the love and compassion in your heart and shine your light. It may even get mirrored back to you.

Become a Mirror

In crazy times like the present, we often are so inundated with the woes of the world we see the pain and darkness and lose sight of the light, the positive, the beauty, the love, and the grace.

We also fail to see the light in ourselves because, frankly, many people around us (either in person or remotely) also focus on the darkness they see and lose sight of the light. Surround yourself with people who “see” you and who are positive. It can make a world of difference.

When you look at other people and the world, mirror the beauty you see in them.  Even if you’re not in person, you can acknowledge the strength, the love, the compassion, etc. of others via text, face time, Zoom, Skype, email, or even a phone call works.

Don’t let others Feed your Panic

You may need to step back and look at the big picture, check facts, do a little research, and stay informed.

It only takes a minute to Google something to see if it’s true. I avoid people, videos, posts, etc, that are fraught with hype, exclamation points, and alarmist language. When bombarded like that, it’s hard for me to stay centered and to sort out the hype from the truth. I tend to discount almost everything I hear or read in that vein. I look for straightforward, non-alarmist, and relatable people, and then I still Google it to see if other sources are verifying what I’ve heard.Be Present.
