In today’s highly competitive world, self-introspection and being positive is something we don’t have time for in our lives. We are so involved in the race to give our best that we don’t take time to think. And if you happen to be a sensitive person, then of course life is not so easy for you. You can experience the world from a completely different point of view and things affect you both emotionally and psychologically in ways that they don’t affect others. Perhaps you have often thought of yourself differently from the rest and you feel like an outsider. However, there is nothing wrong with being sensitive.
If you’re looking for confirmation of that statement, you should check out Elena Herdieckerhoff’s TEDx talk, which will change your perception of sensitivity. Elena is a mentor for highly sensitive and empathetic entrepreneurs. In her TEDx talk, she said the popular cultural narrative surrounding highly sensitive people needs to be changed.
Elena acknowledged that people who are highly sensitive can prove to be a hindrance during competitive stressful situations. But she debunked the common misconception that sensitive people are weak or less courageous compared to others. Rather, she defined sensitivity as often a strength.
“I’ve come to love the fact that I connect deeply and easily with others and also that I have a strong intuition that guides me like a foolproof GPS,” she said. Elena continued to say that there is a need for an environment where people of all personalities can thrive and not just a select few. She called on large companies to let sensitive people bring their ideas to the table. Without sensitive individuals, the company, she noted, would be devoid of integrity, innovation and ultimately humanity.
“On a personal level, we can all make an impact by simply not judging the delicate difference of the sensitivities around us,” she said. She emphasized the need to have a sensitive mind to create a path to difficult times ahead and to connect with our innate sensitive gifts so that we are able to heal ourselves and planet Earth.
