I find every movement I do is overpowering and I get nothing out of it. I cant feel how a real movement would feel like; it is really just killing it for me. Any sugjestions?
One month, paired with other white belts, and you feel like you are over powering?

Sounds right on track. Be patient.

In fact, you are right where you should be. The hardest thing in Aikido is to learn to do the technique right so you don't feel the power. The real movement will feel like you are not doing anything. If you feel power, you are probabaly thinking power and not technique. Relax and go slow, work on getting the technique right first.
