So I am finally finding the time to sit down and write the blog post I have been hinting at for a while now.
But first – welcome to glorious December in all it’s winter finest!
So, let’s get to it:
What am I doing now?
Have I moved?
Where have I moved to?
Why have I moved?
First off, I am not going to say where I live now in any real detail as all the people who need to know, do, and despite sharing almost my whole life on this blog, I am very mindful of sharing specific details.
All I will say about location is that I was living in London, and now I am in the north of England.
Why have I moved?
Now this one is a little bit more complicated.
As a born and bred Londoner, I have always found the city to be far too overwhelming for me.
Now I know that as an intuitive psychic, I pick up the energies of others in a way that is somewhat unusual.
Imagine what sitting on a packed tube train does to me, or walking down a road like Oxford Street on the run up to Christmas!
It physically and emotionally drains me in a way that is hard to describe.
We all get drained by busy streets and transport, but for me it utterly deletes me.
Perhaps the best way I can explain this is by what an ex-boyfriend once said to me.
I had just got home after a 2 hour commute from work and simply had to lie down, on my own in a dark room as soon as I got in.
“Your commute really takes it out of you doesn’t it?”
That was an understatement.
As most of you know, shortly after he said that, I came down with glandular fever and was very ill for almost six months.
I am absolutely certain that my high sensitivity has led to poor health.
It manifested in not knowing that I simply could not socialize as much as other people, that busy locations and travel would exhaust me, that feeling the anger or criticism of another would dent my spirit and cause fear in me to a disproportionate degree.
I still struggle with my energy levels occasionally if I over do it, and I have changed my whole life in order to manage my high sensitivity.
One of the ways I have chosen to do this is by moving out of one of the busiest cities in the world.
For me, living in London is simply not sustainable for my health.
It is too fast paced for me, it is too big for me.
The other ‘problem’ with London is that it held too much of my past there.
I needed a little bit more of a blank slate. To truly be who I am meant to be now.
So bear with me dear readers, whilst I get on my feet and get settled.
It may take me a while to get a new blogging schedule fully underway, especially as I have gone back to full-time Librarianship work (a whole other post will be needed to explain that decision!)
I love you for reading, and being here on my ever evolving journey.
