Sensitive people are some of the most compassionate, kind souls in the world today. They will go to the end of the world to make you happy, making all efforts within their power to bring you to the brighter side of life.
Most of the time, sensitive people are seen as weak and doormats. They appear to be introverts and anti-social people. But, there is so much more to their empathy and generosity.
Here are 8 reasons sensitive people are stronger than you realize:
1. They feel deeply.
Sensitive people have overcome the challenges that could drive them to have huge addictions to cover up the emotions and past hurt. Their sensitivity has fueled them to keep moving forward while showing the world that they have endured and triumphantly gaining wisdom through the pain. The sensitive person will help without needing acknowledgment. Their egos are not the driving force in their lives. They just want to repay society for all that they had to endure in a positive manner.
2. They love wholeheartedly.
Even though they have been hurt, sensitive people continue to keep their hearts opened to the world. When a heart gets fractured it heals with such intense energy. Sensitive people use this intensity to continue loving and giving of themselves. They have an empathetic gene that knows no boundaries when it comes to love. They know that they will probably get hurt again, but they also know that they will overcome that event with grace. As Nikolay Karamzin said, “A sensitive heart is a rich source of ideas.”
3. They are insightful.
Sensitive people have endured difficult obstacles that have allowed them to partake in amazing causes. The sensitive soul will find a cause to value and protect. They will put that energy into a radical cause for helping humanity. Whether it is animals, nature, or humans, the empathetic and sensitive person will stand up for what they believe. These causes become their children. They are the quiet souls who you see feeding the homeless, fostering children, and saving the whales.
4. They take risks.
When you feel that you have nothing to lose, you will risk it all. The sensitive person has overcome so many obstacles, so what’s one more? They are risk takers, leaders, and trailblazers. They move mountains a spoonful of dirt at a time. When another person perceives a locked door and no way to go through a place, the sensitive person will break open a window. They will do this for everyone, and anything, that they feel is an instrumental part of their lives.
5. They are highly creative.
Creativity is born out of vulnerability and complete openness. The sensitive person thrives on creation. They are the artists, the writers, the musicians, the problem solvers and the eccentric ones. They know that by creating they are also moving through the mystical energies of the unknown. Their creativity shows in different parts of their lives. It isn’t just the arts, it’s about getting creative with ventures while inspiring others to utilize their given talents.
6. They have a dynamic sense of problem solving.
The word “no” is not part of the sensitive spirit when it comes to doing things. They move forward with tenacity. No is not an option. A sensitive person will use past experiences to build on for solving an obstacle like a climbing a ladder, one step at a time. These people know that not solving a problem is like failing again at something that always has a solution. It might not be right in front of them but using that ladder, they can climb higher and rise above the issues.
7. They are detailed oriented.
There is no rock left unturned when it comes to the sensitive person. They know that in order to succeed you have to look at all angles of the situation. They notice everything. They might never mention it but they are aware of every detail in a room, in nature, and in a relationship. This ability makes them seem perfectionists. Some are. Others not so much. It’s all in the details. The sensitive person is strong because they are presently aware of everything around them and still choose to use this gift to help others.
8. They are in tune with nature.
Sensitive people are prone to avoid large crowds, loud music, and anything that is over stimulating. They enjoy being alone and do not apologize for this. The sensitive person requires time in nature and enjoys the solitude of those moments. They are refueled by the grounding elements of the earth. In nature there is no rushing, no expectations, and no lies. Things flow with a natural ease. Being outside, understanding the environment, provides a meditate state of awareness and strength. It feels right. This is what allows the sensitive person to continue helping others.
“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings.
Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.” ~ Anthon St. Maarten
