Many times it seems like the world just doesn’t understand us and since they cannot be inside of our heads, that it is truly impossible for anyone to truly get it. Yet that couldn’t be further from the truth. We may have unique experiences, but we still are all human, we all have the same groups of feelings with varying levels of intensity. You may have different haunting memories, or slightly different tormenting thoughts, but we need to realize that just because we have individually unique experiences and responses, there is a constant. We have pains, we have emotions that overwhelm us, and there is a capacity for another to have empathy for your specific situation even if they have not experienced it directly.
There are many layers that make up who you are.
Sometimes it feels like no one understands, but that is not true.
You are understood, and you are not alone. You have emotional depth and there are people who get it.
The Odds of someone understanding you, is extremely high. But there also will be people who do not. This should not discourage you to believing that you are not alone, this should just point you in a different direction for who you connect with.
The world is full of so many people. Which means, so many different perspectives, likes, dislikes, goals and belief systems. You have your own mindset regarding these topics, but that does not mean you alienate those who are “too different” than you. There are so many individuals with extreme perspectives on certain topics. But you need to remember, beliefs are formed based off of life experiences and what we were taught. So every single person has their own reason for behaving the way they do and believing the things they believe, no matter how far fetched it seems from your own perspective. It is not our job to judge those who think in opposition to us, it is our job to coexist. As long as no one is physically harming you, or emotionally attacking you, then you need to learn to coexist. That doesn’t mean you agree with their beliefs. It just means you are accepting the fact that they are a human with every right to have their own specific perspective. There is no reason for someones belief to cause an emotional reaction in you. There are many people who are racist, sexist, against same sex relations, hyper political, super religious and so forth. As long as these people are not harming you, then they do not deserve an emotional response. Dealing with racism throughout my whole life, I’ve realized, I will not change the mind of everyone by responding emotionally…. I will change the mind of each individual that interacts with me and sees that I am human. We cannot fight extreme perspectives with extreme emotions, that may only further affirm their perspectives.Be accepting and be the best individual that you can be, and you’ll be surprised how many people you can positively influence.
