Yep, I said it!  Whoever came up with the idea of being sensitive as negative thing anyway?  Why do people say things like: You’re So Sensitive as a insult?   Apparently they have no idea the word sensitive means so much more.

You may be thinking: There she go again. Or, what kind of title  is that for a blog post?  Well let’s jut say there is more to the word

(function(t,e,i,d){var o=t.getElementById(i),n=t.createElement(e);o.style.height=250;o.style.width=300;o.style.display=’inline-block’;n.id=’ibb-widget’,n.setAttribute(‘src’,(‘https:’===t.location.protocol?’https://’:’http://’)+d),n.setAttribute(‘width’,’300′),n.setAttribute(‘height’,’250′),n.setAttribute(‘frameborder’,’0′),n.setAttribute(‘scrolling’,’no’),o.appendChild(n)})(document,’iframe’,’ibb-widget-root-241271′,”banners.itunes.apple.com/banner.html?partnerId=&aId=&bt=catalog&t=catalog_black&id=241271&c=us&l=en-US&w=300&h=250&store=appleMusic”);sensitive than meets the eye and this all ties into Mental Health Awareness Month.  So, if you are intrigued or not I ask that you just go with it and keep reading.

Throughout the years, every time I hear the word sensitive it’s always used in the context of someones emotions.  Repeatedly the emotions that are seem to stand out in people’s minds are sadness and anger.  I may be a little different,  but those are not the only emotions I think of when it comes to the word sensitive. 

Hello? Are You There?
Hello? Are You There?

According to Dictionary.com the word sensitive means: Capable of perceiving with a sense or senses. Responsive to a stimulus. Susceptible to the attitudes, feelings, or circumstances of others.

Well I’m here to tell you being sensitive is a good thing.   I consider myself to be a sensitive woman.  But please believe I don’t categorize myself with JUST the negative side of the word. The “S” in the word sensitive could mean that you are

  • strong
  • smart
  • sexy
  • successful
  • special

you get my drift.

Based on life experience and your surroundings being sensitive could been that you are also:

  • cheerful
  • emphatic
  • thoughtful
  • analytical

So the next time someone say’s to you, “You’re So Sensitive” try to concentrate on the positive side of the word.  Remember being sensitive is not all negative.  I am not saying this will be easy.  Truth

Being Sensitive is Not Negative!
Being Sensitive is Not Negative!

be told, my first reaction to the statement is not a happy one.  But the more we work on pushing negative self-talk to the side, it will become easier.  Our Mental Health is worth working on.

Let me know your thoughts on this subject and I invite you to share this with someone who needs to hear this message during Mental Health Awareness Month and beyond.

Talk to you later Roses!
