You’re just too sensitive!

February 22, 2016

If you’ve been called too sensitive, you’re likely no stranger to feelings like failure, fear, disappointment, confusion, surprise, longing, loneliness, frustration, anger, grief and boredom.

Welcome to having a heart that can break.

Welcome to caring about others’ breaking hearts.

Welcome to being curious.

Welcome to wanting to understand.

Welcome to asking forbidden questions.

Welcome to learning.

Welcome to delight.

Welcome to growth.

Welcome to adventure.

Welcome to wonder.

Welcome to appreciation.

Welcome to love.

Welcome to being fully and vibrantly human.

Maybe it was a compliment…

Love to hear if this resonated.  I think there are more of us than you might imagine.

P.S.  I recently published a new post on Medium about how we scare the crap out of ourselves with opinions.  Please check it out here and recommend it or comment – I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Much love,

    LOVE this! Totally hit home for me, I’m often told I am “way to sensitive”. Your perspective put it all into place for me. Thank you!

      So, since you’re not way too sensitive, which descriptions out of the laundry list will you now pick to describe yourself? That seems like a fun exercise! 🙂

    Robyn,
    What a wonderful summary description that is summed-up in one of your last lines “Welcome to being fully and vibrantly human.” !!!

    Well-said, and it does resonate with me. I’ve overcome much of my fear about what others might think of my sensitivities.
    My experience has been that the rewards of being senstitive and open-minded far outweigh any momentary discomfort in discovering all this life has to offer.

      It’s interesting…don’t know that I’ve overcome my concerns around what others think of me or my desires for approval; at the same time, like you, I’ve learned to appreciate the upsides to feeling, in spite of that.
