I’ve personally spent much of my life ashamed of my sensitivity. I’ve spent countless days, months and year trying NOT to be sensitive. My sensitivity has often felt like a fatal flaw in my character. I think I have finally come to accept/embrace both the gifts and challenges of being a sensitive soul.
This beautiful reflection resonated so deeply for me … I just had to share it … in case you too are a sensitive soul … or … in case you are living with one or in love with one!
And … with warm hugs to all of you from sensitive me, Karen
Sensitive people are the most genuine and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they will end the friendship. They live with guilt and constant pain over unresolved situations and misunderstandings. They are tortured souls that are not able to live with hatred or being hated. This type of person needs the most love anyone can give them because their soul has been constantly bruised by others. However, despite the tragedy of what they have to go through in life, they remain the most compassionate people worth knowing and the ones that often become activists for the broken-hearted, forgotten and the misunderstood. They are angels with broken wings that only fly when loved. — Shannon L. Alder
