What’s is Sensitivity?_The ability of being sensitive. Those who are sensitive often feel weak. Some people ares sensitive to themselves but insensitive to others. They often feel that others are ‘bad guys’. Those who are sensitive to others but not to themselves often end up feeling ‘poor me’. Some conclude its better not to be sensitive as sensitivity brings pain. They shut off.
H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar writes in one of his books
“If you’re not sensitive,you will lose all the finer things in life too_intuition,beauty and ecstasy of life. ”
Sensitive people does not recognize that their sensitivity is their strength and insensitive people refuse to recognize their weakness. Being sensitive has got its own pros and cons. Just give it a thought on how it affects our goals. Many of us think that both are independent aspects,even I had the same perception until I wrote this. And mind you most of us will be convinced by the end of this article and will be compelled to give it another perspective,another view,a whole new vision -how being insensitive can deviate you from your goals.
Sensitivity is a feeling; we are all sensitive. The people who turn away from being sensitive becomes insensitive. Feelings,good or bad are radiations which are reflected and absorbed by us all day round and at the end of the day,we are full of it. Instead of suppressing these radiations, you can use it to drive your ambitions and benefit yourself and others. It is the very energy or determination, an unfailing self motivation to keep you moving towards your goal, no matter how many hurdles flood your way. To achieve our goals,we need motivation, Energy and sensitiveness gives us this energy. The challenge is to find this motivation and face the obstacles,setbacks,fear and use self-criticism for betterment. Sensitivity compels us to analyze our setbacks and think about them. Recently we were distributed our mid semester tests papers and I was really ashamed of myself ,bottom line I cried. I don’t even remember myself ever feeling this bad cause of my marks. Instead of ignoring them or turning my back on them, I resolute to change it. I know I have it in me what it takes to change it and here is my opportunity to consider my efforts,mistakes and learn from them. And this very realization,self-criticism has driven me to put my best foot forward ,to work harder and achieve my goals*. Sensitive people focus on bettering their lives,analyzing their progress.etc. They often have high bars for themselves. They evolve towards these high standards momentarily. This constant drive to keep bettering oneself paves the way for arrival of satisfaction, joy from the accomplishment of the new and a elevated respect for self and one’s life.
Sensitivity even holds importance in relationships. We are aware of people’s feeling and so are they,about our nature,behavior. Our sensitive nature,thinking will give them a sense of dependablitly of our communication skills,interpersonal skills and fosters one’s emotional intelligence which is of great importance for career and achieving our goals
We are worried about deadlines of doing our work properly and are often caught by dogma which is action decision based on people’s thinking _what people will think. If we are little careful,conscious and blend this sensitivity with natural awareness,passion for work; nothing can stop us from achieving our goals-bottom Line you must be sensitive
Insensitive people often lack the energy,the self criticism and sensitiveness. Although they do not suppress the radiations,they shun it,avoid it which deviates them from their goals. The present day youth,not only youth but everyone today is self-centric and becoming insensitive resulting in failures to attain the satisfaction and their goals; and this frustration often leads to flourishing of criminal mindset and Sucidal tendencies.
It is sensitivity,not ruthlessness,that helps us reach our goals. And it’s authenticity ,not the suppression of true self,that drives us to our dreams.
Sensitivity is intuition,sensitivity is compassion,sensitivity is love,sensitivity is real strength,calmness,endurance,silence,non reactiveness, confidence ,faith__and a smile 😊
