Do you ever wonder if you’re too sensitive?

Maybe people have said, “You need to get a thicker skin,” or it’s simply something you repeatedly say to yourself. Particularly on those days when conflict, criticism or other people’s negative energy makes you feel like you got punched in the gut.

As a highly sensitive person, this has been a recurring theme in my life. And in today’s episode, you’ll learn how to make your sensitivity a gift instead of a setback.

Because I honestly believe my ability to feel things deeply is one of my greatest strengths. It’s what allows me to do the work I do in the world. And it’s taken me quite some time to figure how to really leverage that gift, while mitigating the downside.

My hope is that some of what I’ve learned might help you, too.

Now, I’d love to hear from you. If you consider yourself a sensitive person, what are some of the practices you use to stay both open hearted and strong?
