For those that are sensitive

For those of us that are highly sensitive, emotional and overly expressive, we can’t help it, it’s in our make up. Asking us to change our sensitivity is like asking a left-handed person to use their right hand for writing, asking someone with blue eyes to change their eyes color to brown or demanding that a dog speak English.

 

We are who we are and we can’t change, even if we want to. So give us a break, stop trying to make us into something we’re not. We are going to open with our feelings, we can’t help it, really. We are overcome with empathy and concern for others and why is that such a bad thing? Why are so they so threatened by it? Why does it make YOU so uncomfortable?

 

I refuse to be shamed for my sensitivity and I want all the other sensitive beings to know that they’re not alone, there is nothing wrong with them and they should embrace their sensitivity, not be ashamed by a society that doesn’t understand our uniqueness. So walk tall and continue to love, express yourself and speak your heart and truth, whether the rest of the world gets it or not. Peace

Snippets of my life

As I was sitting in this bar all alone on a Friday night; smoking my cigarette and feeling kinda anxious, this woman sits next to me and we start talking, things are going great. Midway through our conversation she says to me, you know you are a very sensitive man, and this is after talking for about 30 minutes or so. I wasn’t quite sure if that was a compliment or an insult, I’m still not sure but either way it felt nice.
