Below is a poem on Self-Appreciation from my book, Making Sense of Your High Sensitivity.
Self-Appreciation for Highly Sensitive People
Who are you?
Where do you fit in this world?
We come in different colors, shapes, sizes, abilities, and aptitudes.
Some of us are able bodied, and some of us are not.
Some of us have physical handicaps, and some of us are handicapped by our thinking.
Some of us have attitudes that will make us soar, whoever we are.
We all have choices. We can choose to make our situations better or worse.
We are all dealt circumstances that we can and cannot control.
Don’t we owe it to ourselves, our loved ones, and our world to make the best out of whatever we’ve got?
Why not make the best out of your lot?
For better or worse, we’re all we’ve got.
It is important to appreciate yourself as a highly sensitive person. Learn, accept, and work with what you have. Make the best out of your lot. Your lot…our lot…is a good one. Take advantage of it. For better or worse, we’re all we’ve got.
Do you appreciate yourself? Are you grateful for your high sensitivity? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
