Do you ever get scared…?


Do you ever get scared, worried, nervous? That you are doing things wrong, making wrong decisions, in the wrong place, with the wrong person?  I Do. All the time.  But I have to believe I am here, where I am today, with the person I am with, etc… for a reason.  If not to be forever, than to be right now.  I have always been one to overthink, overanalyze, over love (if there is such a thing), over everything! I have learned that I have to work through these issues and find the truth. My truth.

I have learned that before reacting, breathe.  Before speaking, breathe. Before believing, breathe, and pull out the real not the imagined.  I have not accomplished this much yet, but I am working on it.  Its a very important and healthy way of looking at things and people.  At least to me it is.

I have also learned to trust my instincts and feelings about people and am learning to speak my mind and hold firm to things I believe others will try to manipulate me from. The boundaries I know I have and should be respected by others.  This is especially hard for me because I have never implemented and held firm to these personal boundaries.  Knowing that this is one of the reasons I am where I am today regarding issues I am dealing with makes me work harder on this.

Being over-sensitive about things is another issue, but I believe it can be both a gift and a curse.  A curse, because it gets me to the over-everything point.  It makes my emotions feed off others emotions and feelings as well, putting me into a tailspin at times.  But also a gift, because I believe it is what gives me my creative nature.  It gives me understanding of others more than I normally would be.  It gives me insight to things and people that I don’t believe i would have if not for my sensitivity. Is that too much? Weird? I don’t know.

Anyway, that is my thoughts going through my head on this Saturday.

  1. I have lived my life in fear until a while ago. To be with S. in the United States, I had to leave behind my birth country, Australia. For the longest time I had ‘What If’s’ plaguing my mind. I made the choice because, a) I was not really connected to Australia as I only had my daughter and one really good friend and they came with me! I had moved to my town to be in a small town but it had become really built up and had so much crime. So I moved. It was well worth it. Tiny fears can become huge if you don’t stand up to them. They are like your very own bullies. I agree take that breath and live each day as if it is your last. Self doubt is harder to tackle but I agree take that breath slow down your thoughts and you can make things better. Great post Kat! <3

    1. Oh wow! So glad they could come with you so you had someone for support as well! That had to be such a big decision. I’m so happy for you.
      Thank you so much! ?
