Be Happy You Are Sensitive

February 1, 2016

 

Out of all of the people in the world, I tend to gravitate towards those that are labeled “sensitive.” Outwardly sensitive people, in my opinion, tend to embrace each and every experience with a compassionate heart and an understanding mind. I feel that most people (yes, you included) are sensitive creatures, but due to previous circumstances have built up walls of protection in order to emotionally survive. This internal blockage has the possibility to greatly affect one’s outlook on life and can determine the path in which one chooses to walk.

 

At one point in my life, my entire outlook shifted because I am a sensitive person. While I have never not been a sensitive person, I didn’t realize that my sensitive nature was actually creating chaos by attempting to build faulty walls. Furthermore, before my “walls” became a combination of self-destructive behaviors, they mainly consisted of one: a bad attitude.

On some level l understood my vulnerability as a sensitive person from a young age and did everything in my power (so I thought) to make sure that anyone around me never truly saw or experienced my sensitivity because I needed to be strong. I protected myself from those in close proximity by using snarky comments and sarcasm - all the while swallowing my hurt feelings, which eventually turned into anger. But the thing is, I could have avoided all of this turmoil because I didn’t need to stop myself from being sensitive. I needed to stop taking things so fucking personally.

In order for me to distinguish the difference between being sensitive and taking things personally, I had to look deep within myself to find answers. This is what came to me:

 

 

Every person you meet is operating out of their very own Universe.

Their energy, openness, and awareness is determined by their current understanding of themselves; current needs and desires; and, lessons previously learned. Rarely do two individuals simultaneously bond on a level that allows them to merge both of their “worlds.” Rather, one person either joins the other by embracing the opposing world; or, both individuals maintain themselves within their own universes without expanding into the other’s.  

 

 

This explanation allowed me to see, in the most basic terms, that the world doesn’t revolve around me. It also allowed me to realize that the “protective walls” I had built were actually blocking me from connecting to my inward wisdom thus keeping me from inner growth. Time after time, I allowed my feelings to be hurt because it was all I could comprehend. It was the easiest way for me to dismiss my feelings without taking responsibility. Now, I see that we are all merely a reflection of one another, and anytime we feel as if we have been hurt, it is up to us to self-reflect in order to find what is truly happening within ourselves.

 

 

Every person you meet is operating out of their very own Universe.

 

 

Being sensitive with greatly revolving stimulation is absolutely a gift; but taking everything personally is a way to stunt your growth. We each have to embrace our delicate nature and use it to find a deeper and more loving connection to ourselves. If we do this, we will naturally extend outward to others. Within every emotional experience lies a greater lesson.

 

Always grateful,
