Hypervigilance is an enhanced state of sensory sensitivity accompanied by an exaggerated intensity of behaviors whose purpose is to detect activity. Hypervigilance may bring about a state of increased anxiety which can cause exhaustion.
Unfortunately, this has been a constant state of my being for some of us. I developed it as a child of abuse and intensified by the continual abuse I’ve had in my life. It is exhausting! Always on guard, jumping out of my skin, at any noise of swift movement around me. The constant need to keep myself safe.
As my healing process progresses, my hypervigilance has dissipated. Thank GOD! I am not startled as easily, and my personality has lightened, my Soul can grow, I can stop and smell the roses and appreciate the world I live in. There is a way out of it and I can see the light, for that I am truly…
Thankful, Grateful and Blessed!
