Sensitive people should be treasured. They love deeply & think deeply about life. They are loyal, honest & true. The simple things sometimes mean the most to them. They don't need to change or harden. Their purity makes them who they are.
You don't learn valuable life skills from avoiding life but rather showing up for life everyday ready to take life on with all its challenges and vital life lessons. That's what makes a warrior with the battle scars to prove it.
