Ignoring sensitivity and telling people it is a weakness is linked to getting rid of powerful people: the healers, the midwives, the advocates, the wise women, and too, the sensitive men who were seers, medicine men, witch doctors.
Suppressing sensitivity because there is nowhere safe to feel it or discuss it, is truly awful and injurious to the spirit.
I believe it's a major contributor to depression and anxiety.
We reclaim sensitivity as a superpower NOW and as we do, the feeling people rise.
There is no excuse for forcing conformity on the people of the world as diverse and fascinating as they are. And yet we see the dumbing down of people into one element of person, and praise for being a memory bank, while forcing them to be judged against each other, and scaring them into trying to be the single victor on the top of the heap.
There is no excuse for teaching the visionaries to sit still and follow the way it is. They need to develop the way it *could* be - that's why they are "visionaries"!
There is no excuse for teaching the artists they must follow only one path to their art and that horses are not blue.
Thank God Picasso did what he wanted.
And there is no excuse for physical, mental, emotional or spiritual shaming about your value. You and your gifts are valuable.
I say ENOUGH!
Empathy and sensitivity are superpowers and it is time for them to BREATHE AND FLY.
