They call you overly sensitive, too emotional, weak. They look at you like being sensitive is a bad thing. But, don’t listen to them. There’s nothing wrong with you. Your sensitivity is not a weakness – it’s a strength. A blessing. It’s a gift that the world needs.
You’re special. You’re unique. Your soul is rare to find.
You’re highly intuitive and you’re aware of your surroundings.
You can enter a room full of strangers and you can tell right away who is happy and who is having the worst day of their life.
You’re like an emotional sponge. You feel and absorb other people’s feelings. And whatever someone feels, you feel it 10 times stronger. If they’re angry, you feel anger moving through every single nerve of yours. If their heart is broken, yours breaks a million times more.
You can’t stand pain and suffering. You can’t stand seeing other people being hurt. You can’t help but wonder what you can do to help others and alleviate their pain. You’re the kind of person who would rather take someone’s pain off them and carry it on your own shoulders than silently watch them suffer.
Because that’s who you are. You’re kind-hearted, unselfish, and compassionate. You care about others and you’re careful not to say or do anything that could hurt their feelings.
You’re the go-to person when someone needs advice and help because they know you’re always there to listen to them. You don’t judge people, but you accept them as they are and respect their opinions, no matter how different they’re from your own.
You believe in the goodness in people. You believe that we can all make the world a better place to live in.
You’re not afraid or ashamed to show your emotions and that you’re vulnerable. When you’re happy, you laugh. When you’re angry, you shout. When you’re sad, you cry.
Oh, and the way you love – it’s unique. Your love is genuine, pure, and profound. It can be smooth like the ocean and powerful as a blazing fire.
When you’re in love, you love hard. You love deeply. You proudly undress your soul in front of your partner. You let them get to know you to the core. Making them happy becomes your main priority.
When you’re in love, you feel strong to weather any storm, withstand every drought, climb up the highest mountain, fight every evil.
The person your arms embrace is the luckiest one on the Earth.
The coldness of the world doesn’t scare you. When they call you sensitive and weak while smiling cynically, you don’t get mad at them because you know they don’t understand you. Because they are not like you and they don’t have your soul. Because you’re stronger than their words. Because you’re able and most importantly, willing to forgive.
The coldness and cruelty of others don’t scare you because you’re able to warm even the coldest and tame the most restless heart. And that’s why this world needs you.
We need you to show us how to treat others and empathize with their pain. We need you to show us how to fight against injustice because that is in your core. We need you to show us how to love others and ourselves as well.
We need you to teach us how to always be ourselves and become better people.
And yes, despite being a blessing, your sensitivity can also be a curse. Because when you’re hurt, it pains a lot.
And sometimes, your sensitivity causes you to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. There are days when you just need to cry and days when you need to spend time by yourself. But, this is fine. This is normal. There’s nothing wrong with you. This is only a phase.
So, when people tell you: “Stop being so emotional” or “Get over it,” and try to make you feel like you’re weak, don’t take their words to your heart because you’re privileged. You’re privileged to have the gift which enables you to feel things on a deeper level than most people and be aware of emotions that many may miss.
Be who you are and never let others change you or make you see yourself as weak. You’re proof to the world that showing feelings and understanding those of others is not a weakness – it’s a strength.
Remember that you’re the kind of person everyone is looking for. Remember that you’re strong and resilient. Be proud of yourself and always be grateful for your gift, for your blessing. Remember that you’re invincible and that the world needs you.
