Ignoring sensitivity and telling people it's a weakness is linked to fear and 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, means we miss out on a superpower we could use to change our lives and the world.
It's the old way to force conformity on the diverse and fascinating people of the world, we are capable of so much more than one straight, structured path. 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 - their multidimensional capabilities and innovate - that's why they are visionaries!
Repressed sensitivities contribute to depression and anxiety. We need to be safe to be who we are. As we reclaim and start to understand our sensitivity as a superpower, the 'feeling' people rise.
It's not ok to be physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually shamed about your gifts.
Empathy and sensitivity are superpowers and it is time for them to BREATHE AND FLY.
