“Embrace your sensitivity and ability to feel deeply – it is a superpower.”
Yes, I shed quite a few tears recently during and post the movie, ‘The Greatest Showman’ with Hugh Jackman. You also need to know, so did my man!
We are often quick to criticise people for being overly sensitive; people who wear their heart on their sleeve, who feel deeply about situations and the plight of others and show it vividly and sometimes loudly through the expression of various emotions, depending on the gravity of the situation!
I am convinced, however, that to feel deeply is a true SUPERPOWER.
To feel deeply comes with many benefits and allows us to experience life with passion. I have come to learn that when we understand, celebrate and steer well this superpower, it can be a powerful tool and a huge force for good.
So, if this is you – don’t allow others and yourself to be put down by this natural sway to be more sensitive than most – treasure it, use it and watch its influence.
Here are a few points to know, if you feel deeply:
- Embrace your sensitivity and ability to feel deeply – it is a superpower.
- Don’t be consumed by the negativity of others towards your sensitivity.
- Learn how to steer and guide it well for good outcomes and results; from the Boardroom to the homefront, with your colleagues, neighbours, family and friends.
- Remember, you may well need to take a step back sometimes from the incessant world of news and information in the palm of your hands as it may become overwhelming.
Finally, celebrate this superpower.
