#HighlySensitivePeople: Do You Need A Better Perspective On Being Highly Sensitive?

People constantly write to me and keep saying that they wished that they weren’t highly sensitive. Being on the high side of being highly sensitive, I never thought this way. What’s the purpose of trying to be or wishing to be something that you’re not? Do you need a different perspective on being highly sensitive? Here are some quotes to help you:

  • “Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empathy who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world”. ― Anthon St. Maarten
  • Learning to thrive as a highly sensitive soul presents challenges. If you’re sensitive, you have likely accumulated years of training in trying to overcome the trait because you don’t ‘fit in’ with society. And yet being highly sensitive is a vital part of you. A first step toward thriving as a sensitive soul is to understand and accept your trait. Hear this now: There is absolutely nothing wrong with you. You are just different. – Jenna Avery
  • “I believed I was too sensitive and weak. To “prove” I wasn’t a victim anymore, I moved closer to painful experiences rather than away from them. Remaining in harm’s way and exposing myself to more pain kept me in the victim role rather than moving me out of it.― Christina Enevoldsen
  • “We highly sensitive people are very unique with exceptional qualities! Like all human beings, we have strengths and weaknesses. Acceptance…working with our physical and emotional qualities…wouldn’t life be easier and more satisfying”? ― Cliff Harwin
