“Hi my name is Melody and I am a Sensitive“. While true, those words have often struck a chord of confusion, frustration, loneliness and even shame for me.
I have always been Sensitive, I just tried to hide it for much of my life. Growing up I pretended I didn’t feel things deeply, tried to be more ‘logical’ and followed the path of my family that left me with the message that emotions were tricky, messy and at best, something to be tolerated, not celebrated.
It’s challenging being a Sensitive and even though I have worked diligently to come to terms with that part of my nature, I see how far I still have to go with it.
