For whatever odd reason, society has formed a sort of cultish outcasting toward many expressions of sensitivity and emotional vulnerability. Sensitivity is often interpreted as a sign of weakness, as opposed to what it could also be viewed as, strength and courage. Due to that reality, humans often feel ashamed of such an expression of themselves that more often than not requires a willing mind and an open heart from not only the one doing the expressing, but at times even from the recipient(s) as well.
It’s human nature to want to genuinely express yourself, however that may be. It’s not only healthy to open up from time to time, but it’s necessary. We weren’t designed mechanically, we were designed to interpret life through our senses and what we feel; spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Negating yourself from such a natural form of expression will only prove to be detrimental to your overall growth and progress as a human being. You have to give yourself a release for the multitude of emotions you feel throughout your day to day life.
“Sensitivity” in the human sense can be defined as the emotional and spiritual expression of your inner vulnerabilities. Through this expression you allow yourself to release any inner tension and heal from emotional traumas. It’s wise, however, not to become engulfed in your own emotions. An unhealthy and aggressive expression of your vulnerabilities and emotions can be quite toxic; you must find your balance.
It’s ok to feel 🙂
“When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.” – Shannon L. Alder
