9 Reasons You Should Cherish The Sensitive People You Know

9 Reasons You Should Cherish The Sensitive People You Know

Sensitive people tend to get a bad wrap. Being sensitive is usually met with negative connotations such as being over-emotional and easy to upset which, in turn, is seen to create unnecessary drama.

However, being a sensitive person has its positive sides too and it’s these traits that we need to embrace and cherish in those people in our lives who we deem as a little sensitive.

1. They’re The Most Genuine And Honest People You’ll Ever Meet

Sensitive people are hyper aware of their surroundings and how they come across to people. They have the ability to say the right things without being harsh or having the intent to upset you. They are able to be honest and genuine at the right moments giving you the best advice possible.

2. They Will Always Support You

People who are on the sensitive side are more likely to stick by you when you’ve been wronged in any way. Sensitive people know how it feels when it comes to betrayal because they have probably suffered it a lot in their own lives. They are more likely to stand up for you because they identify with the betrayal rather than the full picture, but sometimes this is what you need. They also see the importance in being there for you as they are hyper aware of the fears, anxieties, and other range of emotions you may be feeling in times of need.

3. They Have The Ability To Care And Love Deeply

Sensitive people have an innate ability to love and care for you at a deeper level because they are well aware of their own bruised souls. They are sensitive to your feelings and want to do all they can for you because they want to prevent you from feeling hurt like they have in the past. This means sensitive people take this to a deeper level than others are able to because they are more likely to draw and learn from past hurts.

4. They Remain Compassionate Despite Being Broken-Hearted

Whatever hurt and anguish they are going through, sensitive people will never hold anything against you or feel bitter towards you especially in your hour of need. They may have inner turmoil going on themselves, but that won’t detract from their ability to be compassionate towards your situation and be there for you.

5. They Are Able To Sense Emotions In Others

Sensitive people are often in tune with the needs of others and have an innate ability to love and soothe just when you need it the most. People of a sensitive disposition are able to sense how you’re feeling through your words and actions much better than others.

In fact they will sense your emotion within as little as a few seconds of walking into a room with you. This ability is to your advantage as it will instantly allow someone to help unburden your thoughts and feelings and help understand you. Because of this, sensitive people make great psychologists, counsellors and teachers.

6. They Are Hardworking

If you have a sensitive person on your workforce then you’re in luck because they are hardworking to the point of perfectionism. They are guaranteed to put 110% into any task or project to get it done the best way possible. As deep-thinkers, they also make great team mates and are more likely to contribute their well thought-out ideas to a team meeting or key strategies for your sports team.

7. They Are Conscientious

It’s very unlikely that a sensitive person will harm or take any action that will cause distress to others. This is because it’s in their nature to carefully and thoughtfully think and analyse each situation before acting. Sensitive people are more aware of the consequences of their actions because of their ability to think ahead. This is something you will benefit from because you are guaranteed to get the perfect and well thought-out response to any situation.

8. They Have A Lot Of Imagination

Do you struggle with thinking up good ideas or using your imagination for a unique angle? Well you should definitely call on your sensitive friend because sensitive people have very vivid and colourful imaginations. They are more likely to be able to come up with original ideas and gladly help you out in making them a reality.

9. You Can Guarantee There Will Only Be Good People In Their Life

…and that includes you. Sensitive people will cut ties with those that continuously hurt them and who feel don’t add any value to their life. Just by being a part of their life, you are seen as precious and highly regarded which, in itself is a reason to keep hold of the sensitive people in your life.

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
