Default Is it possible to feel too much

This is something I've thought a lot about over the years. We live in a largely non-feeling culture. There's this expectation to keep a stiff upper lip and keep things light. I've never fit into this. I'm someone who feels a lot and often.

Whenever I write a good song, I think about how I couldn't do this if I were the cerebral, practical type.

When I fall in love, I fall hard. I find it hard to come up for air and need to be alone for a while to find my grounding again. I worry that this amount of emotion is overwhelming for those I love. I wish I had the freedom to feel as strongly as I feel, be very sensitive and tender about it and not frighten others.
My heart is too big to fit into one person.
