“People empty me. I have to get away to refill.” – Charles Bukowski
Yes!! I know, I distance myself from many for many different reasons.
I am far too sensitive when it comes to absorbing other people’s energies. So, I need a lot of me, alone time, to re-calibrate my heart, refocus my mind, and reorganize my thoughts.
This is why I prefer spending time with my dog….he never lies about love. Unconditional. No second guessing.
Nothing loses my interest faster than someone lying to me. I have been known to enjoy real conversations, just not too keen on small talk.
These quotes express exactly how I am feeling right at this moment….
“Sometimes your light shines so bright that it blinds people from seeing who you really are.”

“Sensitive people are the most genuine and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they become the worse type of person. Unfortunately, they end up hurting themselves in the long run. They don’t want to hurt other people. It is against their very nature. They want to make amends and undo the wrong they did. Their life is a wave of highs and lows. They live with guilt and constant pain over unresolved situations and misunderstandings. They are tortured souls that are not able to live with hatred or being hated. This type of person needs the most love anyone can give them because their soul has been constantly bruised by others. However, despite the tragedy of what they have to go through in life, they remain the most compassionate people worth knowing, and the ones that often become activists for the broken hearted, forgotten and the misunderstood. They are angels with broken wings that only fly when loved.”

“The people you think are the happiest are usually the saddest; that’s because they see more and feel deeper than others do. They are the sensitive and they see beyond the veil of what’s tangible and what’s not. They wear no masks and can see through the masks of others. The sensitive to life are few in number, which is why they feel so alone…because they are all alone.”
