“Life may seem ‘harder’ for you at times, and often
you are close to overwhelm. But it’s harder still to
repress your overwhelming gifts.
Sensitive ones, bring some gentleness into this
Shine on with courageous sensitivity!
You are the light bearers!”
From “To the Sensitive Ones”, by Jeff Foster
Some days it’s hard to get out of bed. We can mentally go over our ‘Gratitude List” and smell the roses and pray and yet–some days it’s hard to get out of bed. We feel the pain of the world, of our children and friends and loved ones and even the aches in our own heart. And we might think of this as a deficiency or spiritual failing. We might have been called “overly sensitive” or “weak”. But I actually think it’s a superpower. It is not easy to consciously bear your own pain and willingly bear the pain of others takes enormous strength. It is not easy to believe and hope and see light in the midst of darkness. And though too often it goes unnoticed, there are more of us out there than we may realize. So, to you “Sensitive Ones”, maybe it’s time we find each other and support one another to “shine on with courageous sensitivity!”
