Has anyone ever told you that you're "too sensitive"? It's not a weakness. In fact, it could be your biggest strength.

"According to Researcher Elaine Aron, about 15-20 percent of the population are highly sensitive due to the nature of their nervous systems. These people generally have an inclination toward overstimulation, emotional reactivity, and empathy. Whether I fall under this umbrella or not never interested me that much. What interested me was that our culture often finds it culturally inappropriate to experience or express sensitivity, even though there are millions of us living somewhere on that spectrum who could get much more out of life if we just learned to use our emotions!" ~Benjamin Fishel
We often associate sensitivity with weakness, but when we learn how to manage our emotions we can actually become more controlled, empathetic, and driven.
