The Intelligence of the Lizard

on .

lizard3I want to talk about the people who know everything, who have all the answers ready from their childhood who judge and condemn without a second thought.
For the highly sensitive people they can become a serious problem, especially in small age when the sensitives are still exploring the world, everything is open and possible and they create the opportunity to see life from many different points of view.

On human level the ones who know everything, don't just “know” how to live themselves, but they decide, judge and reject everyone who is seeking for answers.
If a sensitive child has this kind of persons around, people who developed an ironic and sarcastic attitude according to their “ready made absolute knowledge”, is going to be in trouble having a low self-esteem. And if these persons are members of this child's closed circle then life will be really hard.

During my teen years when I didn't have any answer ready and everything was open, I was admiring the ones who had everything easy. I thought then that arrogance and irony was just a natural thing since they knew everything (right the opposite from me). I thought that they were privileged, smart, cool and always the soul of the parties.
Now I see that things are different. Most of them today are just survivers. The rebels settled, the smart ones became victims, the cool developed phobias, and their relationships are bad or non existing.

If you have suffered in the past because of your sensitivity and nobody gave you the right to see the answers in life forcing you to accept the lizard's instinct that we all carry inside us, maybe now it's time to give this right to yourself.

I assure you that:

  • It's absolutely alright to have questions and to want to answer them through your experience,
  • You can grow slowly and until you grow you have the right to be immature in many fields,
  • You can ignore anyone who thinks that you're small just because his lizard mind gave him the answers and not his experience and his wisdom,
  • Everyone who has offered something valuable to this world (or any other world) is sensitive. These people never had ready answers but they found them by being open to life. And if their answers have given a lot of value, the right to be open and seek for them has offered much more.
