We all know sensitive people. As a guidance Counsellor, I have met numerous students who are sensitive. They have highly active sensitive awareness antennas. This is both beautiful and yet challenging for them and their friends and family, not to mention themselves.
One of my grandsons is one of those sensitive people. However, this has not always been easy for him. It comes with being teased and mocked so he has developed an emotional guard so he doesn’t let too many people close to him. He has learned how to be humorous about it and is developing into an amazing young adult.
I read the following quote about sensitive people which sums up the essence of sensitive people. “Sensitive people should be treasured. They love deeply and think deeply about life. They are loyal, honest, and true. The simple things sometimes mean the most to them. They don’t need to change or harden. Their purity makes them who they are.”
Let’s honor our sensitive people in our lives and be grateful for their contributions to our society.
