One more time with feeling

One more time with feeling

That is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. Do you ever read/see/hear something that is just so beautiful, you don't know if your heart can take it? When I was really young, I used to think I had an illness that made me feel things 'too much.' Maybe you're familiar with this feeling too? I think all too often, as we grow older, we tend to numb those feelings, numb those emotions, when really, we need to feel things to be alive.

Yes, I feel that way a lot, and yes, as I've gotten older I've tried to turn it off a bit, to protect my poor little heart.

i thought i was the only one ~ i feel things super intensely, too. and i like to think of it as a blessing, not a curse. <3

This is a great quote. Not only because it describes how feeling things is important but it refers also to the base of every emotion, which is words. This is why people always need to hear some things despise the fact that they may already know the truth...

I know exactly what you mean! People have been telling me that I feel too deeply. I'm more worried about not feeling things. Sometimes I feel as if the words don't just touch me. They seep into my skin and bones until they become a part of me.

Does the title refer to a Regina Spektor song? "Say it in your mind until you know that the words are right..."

absolutely beautiful. <3

and i totally understand what you mean - i'm a feeler. i feel everything. it's been that way since i was little.

I could think about exactly what you just said there for hours!
Words and emotions mean so much and are such a big part of being alive!
It's always better to feel the emotions rather than numb them down.
Numbing emotions can often lead to something not so good..

Lovely pictures, I especially like the second one. Sometimes I do feel like things are 'too much', when it comes to both beauty and pain.
