Why is it so difficult to accept myself and my sensitive temperament?
Okay, so I’m a sensitive person. Accepting the many ways that I am sensitive has been a life long struggle. Though I’ve known about the sensitive temperament for 10 years now, I do forget. Ususally the forgetting has to do with getting overwhelmed and then being hard on myself. Last Sunday I attended a play at the local theater and found myself overwhelmed. I forced myself to stay rather than take a break from the intensity. When I discount a part of myself, I value myself less, and make life more difficult. I’m learning to forgive myself for this harshness.
