Should have…

13 July 2019

Do they ever cross your mind? Words like should have, could have, would have?

The “I-should-have-been-more-patient”, or “I-could-have-held-back-some-words”, the ‘If-I-knew-what-would-happen-I-would-have-done-things-differently”?

Although reflecting on our words and deeds is always a good thing, repeating these thoughts keeps us in a perpetuating cycle from which it is difficult to escape.

We cannot escape our past but we still can decide on our future.

Because maybe it is not so much about the meaning of the words, but more about the tense in which they are used. And it’s the, I shall, I can and I will you are searching for, to help you get there where you want to go.

Our feelings of shame, guilt and sorrow are not here to plague us forever. They just want to let us know that there’s something we care about.

And maybe, that’s not such a bad thing.

Sensitief zijn en je emoties voelen is sterk en positief. Maar in onze samenleving vinden wij vaak het tegenovergestelde. Al lange tijd slaan we de plank volledig mis. We komen er steeds meer achter dat niet voelen en niet over je gevoelens praten juist voor problemen als stress, depressies en ongezonde keuzes zorgt. En dat sensitief zijn een sterke eigenschap is waar we veel meer mee kunnen. Door mijn verhalen te delen wil ik je laten zien dat sensitief zijn en je lastige emoties aangaan zoveel sterker is dan niet voelen en dat we als sensitief mens (wat we allemaal zijn) gewoon mogen Zijn.

About me
Being sensitive and feeling your emotions is powerful and positive. But for centuries we’re thinking quite the opposite. We’ve been wrong all this time. We are starting to understand that not feeling and avoiding to talk about our feelings is what is causing our problems (stress, depression, unhealthy choices). We now also know that being sensitive is more than emotions and that it’s a quality that can help us in many more ways. By sharing my own stories I’d love to show you that being sensitive and feeling your difficult emotions is much stronger than not feeling at all and that as a sensitive being (which we all are) we can just Be.
