Feeling everything deeply.
One of the downsides of being me (I couldn’t find a troll emoji ????♂️) is that I don’t know how to experience or feel things halfway.
It sounds pretty cool when you put it like that, but it’s actually more complex. I can be very selfless or very passionate. Very involved or borderline « I don’t care ».
The downside here (or not necessarily) is that harmless situations get to me more than they should. Failures affect me more than they should.
With time, and by getting to know myself better, I have learned to accept this. Accepting it has allowed me to stop blaming myself for being so « extreme », and instead learn to take advantage of it.
