I love that I get to live in an age where it’s okay to be different. In fact, these days it’s applauded if we separate ourselves from the masses and claim our sovereignty in whatever area of our reality is relevant.
For some it’s gender identification, for others it’s radical anti-governmental opinions.
For me it’s been owning and accepting my deeply sensitive nature.
Some of you may be rolling your eyes, but if you too identify as deeply sensitive, you’ll know exactly how limiting it can be when trying to fit in in an environment that has no comprehension or understanding as to what it is to be sensitive.
Many decades of being misunderstood by others as well as myself, left me with a deep sense of self-loathing and a deeply rooted belief that I simply wasn’t worthy of being loved and accepted.
I remember often referring to myself as “hard work to be around”.
But this is no pity-party chaps.
Because I know without any doubt whatsoever, that without experiencing those conflicting feelings and emotions, and without having experienced true disconnection from any sense of self-value, I would never have been inspired (albeit in desperation) to begin my journey of questioning everything that I had been taught as truth. And I mean everything...
Asking questions, pushing my boundaries and exploring new aspects of myself have all pointed me to where I am today.
What I do know for certain is that discomfort always leads to growth. Always!
Which brings me back to my acknowledgment and acceptance of my deeply sensitive nature.
Whilst the discomfort of my extreme emotions still exists (and always will), knowing and accepting these feelings as how I’m wired means that I can explore and experience them from an empowered perspective.
I’ll go one step further and say that it was the discomfort of my deeply sensitive nature that nudged me towards this journey of self-exploration. How can that not be fabulous??
If you’re sensitive, know this:
– you’re NOT abnormal!
– you’re DON’T need to try and be different!
When you can truly and fully accept yourself as deeply sensitive, then you can begin to see and experience it as your Super-Power.
Because that’s exactly what it is.
