I used to dislike being sensitive.
I thought it made me weak. But take away that single trait and you take away the very essence of who I am. You take away my conscience, my ability to empathize, my intuition, my creativity, my deep appreciation for little things, my inner life and passion for it all.
Beautiful words from an unknown writer. Those words resonated so deeply with me. I at times wanted to make myself exude that tough exterior, but facades can only last for so long right?
I have learnt to embrace this deep feeling, this connection, this deep appreciation, that is such a part of me taking it away would like trying to remove somethings that's deeply ingrained in my DNA.
