Well, I invest in myself a lot, because I take a lot of time to make sure that I am really myself, the true me, that I do not act because any outside pressure and that I do what my heart desires and my conscience considers is the best for all concerned.

I think when we analyze ourselves and get to know whom we really are, we are investing in ourselves and the rest of mankind, as well.

I do have a tendency to overthink things, second guess and then get stressed.  I keep that part hidden.  I try to invest in myself, and be strong, confront things as they happen and not put them on a 'back burner.'  I always try to help....I go to the store, and tell people something nice....it's not hard...I love your outfit, purse, pants, etc.  It makes peoples day.  I did see a lady the other day with turkeys on her pants...I was in love. lol  If I see someone reaching for something I help(only 5'2" here, lol. I climb the shelves, get some weird looks....

Good post Linda. This is where it is healthy to have ego. To not forget about oneself by putting ones own needs aside. 

Interesting things about the word investment- 

Vest comes from Vestir which means clothed. Ment is Mente- Mind  In Clothed mind.  Brain and heart are minds.

It comes down to what we are "dressing" our minds with. People will do anything to avoid their own selves and peer into or listen to their own hearts and minds.

this is so true. I seem to be channeling someone right now.  I suddenly feel like crying, and I was fine a few minutes ago.  It means I'm channeling someone, again...and I stay grounded.

It could have been me Linda. And of others too. Recently on twitter I posted my thoughts on grief after losing a loved one, in a reply. 

I could feel their grief too, I was touched by the amount of people that responded to that reply. All who felt the same and connecting as they have similar experience and feelings.

It's been years, and at still takes me by surprise when it happens.  If my husband and I go out for lunch, and someone is in and mood, I can always feel it.

Gifted Empath. Do you see it as a blessing or curse? Or both?

I tend to see it as both, SL.

Hi Linda,
At 60 years of age, health problems, disability pensions, in Brazil it is called that, not recognized by Social Security, and being requested since 2007 I continue to invest in my survival and in the best quality of life possible.

A Big Hug.
