To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on August 16, 2014 in Picture Quotes

Sensitive people are often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.

    I totally connect with this, as it is my personality. Thank you for this post. This is me. To feel another`s pain, to feel deeply, to hurt deeply. Tears from the soul, for self and for others. xxxxxxxxxxxx

    I am not afraid to show my tears in front of the whole world…. But I find it of no use to wet my eyes in front of those who will show sympathy for a while and then nothing..

    For as long as I can remember I have been this kind of person. Those who know me embrace my inner child and let my tears shine. Always interesting to watch the reaction of people who just don’t understand.
