I often state that my biggest gift was being born with the power to feel what others feel. At the same time, it can be my own biggest curse. Perhaps you think deeply about everything and everyone and have an innate and natural ability to come up with solutions for both complex and small problems. You appreciate beauty and feel profound empathy for others, including animals and the entire planet. Perhaps you have been told time and again that you are really too sensitive and should just “snap out of it” and “toughen up a bit.”
Being sensitive is not a bad trait. There are more than 1.5 billion highly sensitive people on this planet. If you feel like you fit this description, but feel you are being overwhelmed by the duties of everyday life because of your sensitivities, therapy can help you set new needed boundaries and guard your sensitive heart.
