Why hide from the emotion surrounding and within? Why turn a blind eye towards it, refusing to see it for what it truly is. Some avoid pain. Some avoid love. Some might even avoid happiness. Why? A broad range of emotions is what makes up the soul. Feelings are a part of who we are. The colors that make us into a rainbow. Why refuse to see all of those colors? Each with their own hue and brightness. Some bright as sunshine, others as dark as night. Each color as it’s own, adding its own uniqueness to our rainbow. Empaths, like myself, see all of those colors at full brightness. I bask in the colors and allow them to wash over me. Feeling does not make us weak. Turning a blind eye does. Feeling makes us strong. Embrace them all. Don’t be afraid. Like the seasons, they too shall fade from one into another.
