Are strong emotions from others overwhelming to you? Do you cringe when the vocal noise level or tone of voice suddenly changes abruptly in the space you are occupying? Have you considered undertaking self-flagellation for feeling so sensitive to certain environments and personalities?

Yesterday, I chose to reflect the source of who and what I am: Light.
