Are You A Highly Sensitive Person

28 September 2016 Written by 

Sensitive people are not broken people. They just absorb the energy around them differently. They respond to a broken world; they themselves are not broken. How do I know? I am one of those highly sensitive people.

When I was growing up my parents use to complain about and criticize me for being too sensitive. They called me crybaby and treated my sensitivity like it was a character defect that I needed to “work on.” As a result, I was labeled the black sheep of the family. I have come to understand that being a highly sensitive person is actually a gift, not a disorder or weakness.

A highly sensitive person has deep intuition, is creative, and lives with a complex and rich inner life. Empathy is a strong suit and highly sensitive people are great listeners; they listen with their heart and connect with others at a deeper level.

I have come to understand and appreciate my sensitive nature. As the photo to the right states, if you take away that single trait, you take away the very essence of who I am.  Feeling things deeply is actually my super power. I embrace myself and my sensitive heart.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
