What if sensitive and strong are the same thing? After all, it takes great strength to be willing to feel. I feel like this is something I’ve said, or thought, before.
I said something to my therapist about feeling too sensitive and she said that might not be a bad thing, that maybe it makes me more sensitive to the things going on around me.
When I write, I tend to drift towards female characters that have a strong sense of strength and emotion. Very deeply connected to their thoughts and feelings, while also very strong and capable. Maybe it’s a reflection of how I want to view myself. Maybe there’s some truth in it.
Maybe sensitivity doesn’t have to be a bad thing, as so many of us were taught. Instead, maybe sensitivity is that quiet strength that guides us toward truth and a better path.
