If you recognize yourself in the above, you have a sensitive side. You are like the “old self” who was constantly afraid to express his truth, who let others decide whether I was having a good day or a bad day, and who did not love each other enough to create healthy boundaries, professionally and personally.
1. Do not take things personally.
How others treat you is a reflection of how they feel about themselves or what is happening in their lives. It has absolutely nothing to do with you. Once you incorporate this fact into your belief system, you will live much better.
2. Use people and difficult situations to grow.
If difficult situations (and difficult people) can make you experience an emotional roller coaster, remember that this is what teaches us some of our greatest lessons.
3. Express your truth.
Finding the courage to say how you feel and what you need can make you feel vulnerable, but with compassion, there is no doubt that you will see massive changes in your life.
4. Trust your intuition.
Deep inside we know what we really want, what we really need, and how we really want to feel. But for sensitive minds, it is easier to do what is expected of us without paying attention to our own needs. Take back!
5. Recharge your batteries.
When you give and feel things strongly, it is very important to take the time to recharge. You can only give love if you give it to yourself. Show yourself a little love, it’s not selfish. The Universe needs you to be able to shine your bright light.
6. Do not be afraid to disappoint.
When you do something you do not really want to do, people benefit from that energy. Just say “no” because you can not serve everyone. In addition, your “no” will allow you to say “yes” to the things you really want to do, and you will end up being a much happier person.
7. Be clear about your limits.
We all need borders. When we say “yes” when we want to say “no”, when we do not tell our truth, when we find ourselves in the endless cycle of pleasing people, we become disconnected from our true self, and we feel inauthentic. And when we feel disconnected, unauthentic and helpless, our joy escapes us. Be clear about the boundaries you need to start building in your life and apply them.
8. Ask for help when you need it.
We all need support, love and compassion. Let the people in your life know what you need and do not be afraid to assert yourself. Your vulnerability and your sensitivity to these key people in your life will only strengthen your connection and help you see that you are never alone.
9. Find your tribe.
People develop in connection and community spirit. Find a coach, join a sports team, sign up for a hiking club, become a member of a yoga studio, join a book club, become a part of something that illuminates your soul, relaxes you , and offers a connection with other similar spirits. This will enlighten you inside as never before, and you will start to live better.
10. Do something creative.
When you tap into this sensitive creative space within you, you begin to blossom and connect with yourself in a totally different way, opening your heart, mind, and soul. Recognize that creative energy – whether through writing, painting, knitting, or photography – allows you to express yourself authentically and be seen in this way, will ultimately allow you to feel happy, healthy, and above all like part of something bigger than you.
11. Be authentic.
We aspire to the connection. Who are you closest to? Probably, the people in your life who are real, honest and sincere. Live your life fully, in the present, with a sincere heart.
