Do you have a sensitive soul? So do I.
Some people misunderstand and think that just means that our feelings are easily hurt. **That's true, my feelings ARE easily hurt!** But it also means we easily hurt FOR others.
I know how hard it is to get hurt by little things. To feel tears coming when you read a sad story on the news. To sense lonely in people and wish so desperately you could fix it. To experience something so beautiful it makes you weep. To love so much that it makes your heart ache. To FEEL other's emotions. To lose your grip on reality when someone is upset at you.
I know it also means you probably aren't good in crowds. You often withdraw and become quiet. People interpret it to mean that you are rude. You aren't rude you just don't know how to act.
You might have been called too sensitive or overly emotional. But I believe that sensitive energy can be harnessed for GOOD. In fact, don't you think the same things that hurt our hearts hurt our Heavenly Father? The One who designed us, who made the beauty around us, who continues to have compassion on a world that rejects Him? Who gave His Son for us?
You should not feel embarrassed or ashamed to feel. The world needs sensitive people. Now, that doesn't mean that we should go around pouting every time our feelings get jarred. Being sensitive may be difficult in a world full of ambition and evil. Sensitive people often experience life more deeply. But being sensitive can teach us how to love others better and give more. Sensitive people tend to be more empathetic, more perceptive and more creative.
Dear sensitive soul, you are not alone.
