Seeing more deeply
Is it a gift or a curse?
The jury’s still out

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. Might depend on what you happen to see.

  2. Being highly sensitive has its advantages when creating. But being able to see or feel everyone’s feelings around you, there comes the pain and the noise inside other people’s heads. Personally, my mind makes enough rumblings thinking and feeling what is happening inside of myself. I’m not trying to be insensitive to want to shut it out. People are drawn to you and total stranger will tell the most intense stories. They don’t mean to invade boundaries, but whether speaking or just feeling such intense feelings. My vote is mixed. It helps with writing a poem or a story but I am introverted also and sometimes being around people too long can absorb too much of one’s energy. I know I can get drained quickly.and need time alone to re-energize or I will get weak inside. That is the side where it gets messed up with being a curse. Did that help.
