As a sensitive person, this is a good reminder.
Wearing a Dexcom CGM (continuous glucose monitor) for several years, I have noticed just how much difficult emotion and hurt feelings impact my blood sugar negatively. My CGM graph can literally climb double arrows up within minutes of a challenging situation or emotion and stay elevated for hours even with increased insulin. I have been struggling with this for way too long.
What if we could learn to let the people and things go that do not serve our highest good? Instead focusing on all that is good and beautiful around us. Remembering how many people love us and bring us joy and laughter and the love and joy we give to others. We do not need to give our light away to others— each person has their own struggles with lessons to learn on their journey. Let them be.
Being a highly sensitive person with diabetes is not easy. However, choosing not to dwell on those who disappoint me, rather focusing on those who bring me light and life is something I am going to work on— for the benefit of my heart, mind and body. If this practice might help you too, I hope you will join me. I believe it has the ability to vastly improve our overall health.
And so I begin…
Are you also a highly sensitive person with diabetes? (here is a self-test if you’d like to find out). Whether or not you are highly sensitive, have you noticed your sugars go through the roof when you are in a disagreement or conflict with someone? What have you found to be helpful?
