Might depend on what you happen to see.

Isn’t much of what you see dependant on *how* you see it?
Being highly sensitive has its advantages when creating. But being able to see or feel everyone’s feelings around you, there comes the pain and the noise inside other people’s heads. Personally, my mind makes enough rumblings thinking and feeling what is happening inside of myself. I’m not trying to be insensitive to want to shut it out. People are drawn to you and total stranger will tell the most intense stories. They don’t mean to invade boundaries, but whether speaking or just feeling such intense feelings. My vote is mixed. It helps with writing a poem or a story but I am introverted also and sometimes being around people too long can absorb too much of one’s energy. I know I can get drained quickly.and need time alone to re-energize or I will get weak inside. That is the side where it gets messed up with being a curse. Did that help.
Just a rhetoric question really. 🙂
And here’s a post that you may find worth reading. It relates to what you share here.
Thank you. A perfect piece for me. I read and left a comment. Also, added Danielle’s blog to my blogroll. I do believe I will be spending some time on her site. Maybe help and sharing will happen. A place with a healing feeling. Bless your generous and enlightened heart. ❤
Perhaps an instance of sensitivity being of (at least potential) value.
