I have always been a fairly emotional person. When I was younger it was more pronounced, being the only girl, having 6 brothers and growing up in the North of England, I think I was inevitably going to be cast in the ‘over-sensitive’ role in the family. I was never going to be the tough one. At the time I thought it to be a great burden and an annoying inconvenience, especially through school as sensitivity is NOT an advantage there.
As a grown up (well sort of), I am more conscious of the value of my sensitivity and now use it intentionally. For one thing it makes me a much better coach and trainer as I find it easy to be attuned to the needs of my clients. I have also learned how to dim my radar down a little to help me circumnavigate this turbulent game we call life with a modicum of rationale.
During our last workshop we discussed the need for the balance of feminine energy within all of us and the value that sensitivity, empathy and intuition or gut feeling can bring.
We are hoping through our work to bring awareness back to emotional responsibility and the need to make decisions based on how life feels in conjunction with the logical mind based process we call thinking. Therein lies the seeds of success and happiness.
I would love to have your thoughts. Feel free to comment and share.
