(0:00:20) - Accepting Sensitivity's Power and Importance (9 Minutes)

Sensitivity can initially present itself as a burden, but it is actually a gift and a talent. Internalizing the belief that there is something wrong with us can lead to unhealthy coping strategies and cause us to lose a sense of who we really are. We should challenge the idea that we must be perfect and emphasize the importance of self-acceptance. Working with ourselves, rather than against ourselves, makes room for growth and improvement and allows us to take advantage of our sensitivity. It is impossible to perfectly obscure who and what we really are and our true selves will always peek through.

(0:09:40) - Developing Sensitivity for a Fulfilling Life (4 Minutes)

We must acknowledge and lean into our sensitivity, and practice using it in a skillful, mindful, and conscious way. If we deny our gifts, deny our talents, and deny aspects about who we are, then we set ourselves up for an unfulfilling and fractional life. We must accept ourselves fully in order to live a full life.

(0:13:40) - The Paradox of Self-Awareness (7 Minutes)

We can learn how to use our sensitivity in a skillful way to gain greater awareness of ourselves and our environment. To do this, we must practice honing our ability to listen and observe. We can start by getting quiet and listening to ourselves, noticing our thoughts, feelings, and reactions. To deepen our awareness, we can go for a walk and practice listening to our environment, noticing the sights and sounds around us. When making decisions, we can use our intuition to guide us by paying attention to how our body is responding. By leaning into our sensitivity, we can unlock the power of our gifts and talents.

(0:21:07) - Developing and Honoring Sensitivity (2 Minutes)

We all have the ability to develop our sensitivity and use it as a tool to propel us forward in life. Honoring our sensitivity and leaning into it can help us learn to trust it and gain more information, clarity, and awareness. With practice and development, sensitivity can become a valuable asset that helps us live our best life.
