Once in a session with my therapist I complained that I was just too sensitive. She responded forcibly ” You are absolutely not too sensitive. You are exquisitely sensitive. ” That remark helped me begin to learn to value my sensitive nature Being like I am means I can easily understand where other people are coming from. It also means I enjoy being available to people I love.
It also means I am easily hurt. However, I am very glad to be the way I am.
A good friend liked the term exquisitely sensitive, Here is her response.
Oh yeah, that’s me.
For better, and worse,
No buffer to be found.
Some things feel so damn good,
others hurt so very much.
Seldom is there a void.
Thank you for this phrase, George
That expressed my feeling in a poetic way.
