Are you a beautiful Mumma who is struggling at this time of the year and feeling so pushed to your limits?
If so, this letter is for you. X
I love you, I know you are doing your best and I know you have a lot on.
You are so hard on yourself Mummy, always trying to get it right,
Always trying to make everyone happy and I know you take it personally when we aren’t happy.
I know that you feel like it’s your fault, that you’ve done something wrong,
But I’m here to let you know you haven’t…..
I’m a highly sensitive child,
Big emotions and feelings overwhelm me easily,
Sometimes I don’t know how to cope with them and especially when you are ignoring your own feelings and pushing them down, to try to get through your day,
I feel it all in my body,
And I don’t know what to do with that.
So sometimes it comes out in ways that seem like a temper tantrum to you,
Sometimes I know I seem irrational and too emotional for you and that frustrates you.
Sometimes I have such big emotions inside of me from all that I’m feeling and the depth that I’m feeling it, that I can’t even explain what’s going on inside of me.
Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed with feeling so over-stimulated with the day,
The noisy traffic, the rushing, all the activities and everyone’s feelings around me.
It’s a lot for my little body to cope with and my mind can’t process it all,
That’s why it gets expressed the way it does.
It’s why I suddenly seem to burst into tears, with no rhyme or reason,
It’s why I can’t tolerate scratchy tags against my skin and why I might scream or yell until those clothes get taken off.
It’s why I don’t want to wear the shoes, they make my skin crawl with irritation,
It’s why I hate the seat belt around my stomach so tight,
It’s why I hate the tight fitting clothes, it makes me feel sick.
It’s why when you are stressed and rushing and just want me to get ready quickly I find it so hard to focus, because my system is on alert,
It’s why I shut off, shut down and withdraw, because every time you get upset and frustrated with me, I feel it deeper and deeper inside of me and I blame myself and hate myself for feeling this way.
I feel more and more unsafe to be me, in the world.
Mummy I know you don’t mean to make me feel scared,
I know you don’t mean to hurt me in anyway,
I know you don’t mean to get so angry and frustrated.
I know you love me Mummy.
I know you are doing your absolute best, to try to get everything done in your day.
And so am I.
Please stop and breathe with me,
Please stop and slow down and help me to tell you what’s overwhelming my system.
Please take time out for you, so you feel calmer.
Please ask for help and support from others around you, so you don’t feel all alone and that it’s all your responsibility.
Please hold me close and pull me in tight to your heart.
Please help me to understand my big emotions, by allowing yourself to feel yours.
Please know that I don’t “misbehave” on purpose,
It’s me trying to tell you I’m not coping with something.
Please know I need some help at that moment to learn how to regulate my sensitive system.
Please know I find it a bit harder to be out in the world, than most people.
Please know I find solace in peace, in quiet and in calmness.
Please know my big heart and big feelings are here to help make a difference in the world.
Please help me embrace and accept my sensitivity.
That would make a big difference to my world,
I love you Mummy
Thank you for all that you do.
You are my world.

Overwhelming always comes from looking at too much at one time. Feeling overwhelmed is also massively increased by having a limited capacity to deal with what you feel that you need to.
