The Fear of Showing Your True Self

Within you resides a hurt little inner child, scared to death to show the world their true self. This inner child feels fear and shame, believing that showing who they truly are isn’t safe. Perhaps you have experienced trauma or negative experiences in the past that have led you to suppress your true self. As a result, you constantly scan the room, your surroundings, adapting yourself to keep the peace and stay safe.

The Coping Mechanism of People-Pleasing

You have developed a coping mechanism of people-pleasing, hypersensitivity, and making everybody around you feel good. By ensuring that everybody feels good, you believe that you are safe. This constant openness and scanning of your surroundings create a significant energy leak.

Focusing on Yourself: The Key to Healing

To overcome hypersensitivity, it is crucial to start focusing on yourself. Begin by healing the hurt inner child inside of you. Create the safety within yourself that this inner child needs. To achieve this, start speaking your truth, setting boundaries, and doing your own thing.

1. Speak Your Truth

Express yourself authentically, without fear or hesitation. Share your thoughts, feelings, and opinions openly. By speaking your truth, you validate your own existence and pave the way for personal growth.

2. Set Boundaries

Learn to say no when you feel overwhelmed or need time for yourself. Setting boundaries is crucial for your mental and emotional well-being. By setting clear limits, you protect your energy and create space for self-care.

3. Do Your Own Thing

Release the need to constantly adapt and please others. Embrace your unique interests, passions, and goals. Follow your own path, even if it diverges from societal expectations. By doing your own thing, you reclaim your individuality and find genuine fulfillment.

By focusing on healing your inner child, speaking your truth, setting boundaries, and doing your own thing, you can overcome hypersensitivity and reclaim your authentic self.
