Something's been brought to my attention a lot lately. No one particular has actually mentioned it to me but, I've noticed it a lot about myself and for some reason, I feel the need to write about it. So, here we go. I'm sensitive. Like, really sensitive. My feelings and emotions are. I'm fragile. I don't do well at all with scary movies. I don't even like driving in the wind. I'm just flat out sensitive and to be honest, sometimes it sucks. Sometimes I wish I was tough and that my feelings didn't get hurt so stink'n easily. Sometimes I wish that I could just roll with the flow, not over analyze and not feel inferior, about things that aren't even about me!
Part of being a sensitive person is worrying that my children will be like me and that they'll have hurt feelings, sometimes feel lonely and be sensitive to life in general. While I never want them to be that "tough" kid who doesn't care about other people's feelings, sometimes I wish for them to not be quite as sensitive as I am.
As I've been thinking about this and trying to put a positive spin on it, I came up with one awesome thing. God made me this way. I've always been this way and I doubt I'll ever be different. God made me sensitive for a reason so hopefully, I can take this sensitive spirit of mine and use it for HIS glory.
So, what about you? Are you let's say, maybe a little too sensitive like I am? I honestly don't know why I'm even publishing this post but, I feel better now that this is off my chest. And now, I think I'll go spray paint some mason jars (and do some stupid laundry) because, those are very insensitive (and important!) things to do. :)
