The thing about big, scary feelings? They don’t always tell the truth.
They say stuff like, ‘hey sensitive Sally! Guess what? You’re literally the only one who finds life this hard!’
Now, even when you know that can’t be true, go for long enough out there in the 9 to 5, don’t-mention-crying-on-your-lunch-break wilderness, and it can leave you wondering.
What if my feelings are just too big?
What if I don’t really belong on earth?
We’ve been deep in that pit of unbelonging ourselves - many times my friend.
What changed our lives was surprisingly simple, but amazingly hard to find! It was meeting other people who find life just as hard as we do. Fellow lunch-break-cryers and late-night-questioners. Other people with big feelings.
To feel you belong, you need somewhere to belong to.
Here’s our take on this stuff. For whatever reason, some of us find it hard to feel like we belong on earth. That’s not because there’s anything wrong with us, it’s just that there aren’t enough spaces yet, for sensitive types to share the messy stuff.
Somewhere your big, scary feelings make sense.
That’s why we made this thing. The thing we always wished already existed. We’re extremely proud to say we’ve helped thousands of people feel less alone in their big, beautiful brains. They’re in our inbox, and on our message boards, telling us what this thing means to them.
We know this thing is valuable to people. Even if it started just as two sensitive cats meowing into the feelings void.
But we can’t keep this feelings boat afloat on our own.
So here’s where we do the scariest bit of all: ask you for money.
Because this thing won’t last without your support.
If this thing has helped you, you can help us. Your contribution will directly support the day-to-day running of The Big Feels Club, and make sure we can keep on putting out writing, podcasts, and discussion spaces - for thousands of Big Feels Clubbers all over the world.
It will help us grow, so we can reach more people wondering if there’s a place for them.
And your contribution will also do one other really important thing. It’ll help us believe it’s all worth it. Every donation shows us that people really do value what we’re pouring ourselves into day by day. They help us keep doing this work.
Help us hold this honest, vulnerable space, for those who need it?
