High Sensitivity

Image text: High sensitivity is not a bad thing. It is a trait occuring in about 15-20% of the population. It is NOT a condition, a diagnosis, or a disorder.It is a trait, like brown eyes, kinky hair, or big boobs. Just like those traits, there are advantages & disadvantages to having high sensitivity, but those come from the societal and cultural values we place upon them (or don’t), rather than any kind of intrinsic natural phenomenon.

Whether or not you have a genetic trait is completely out of your control, and any value assigned to it—positive OR negative— is a product of external 👏 cultural 👏values 👏 and NOT a reflection of your worth as a human being.

This week I’m deep in writing work on my new program, The Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur. One of the things I keep coming back to is this:

How we talk about sensitivity and everything that goes along with this trait MATTERS. The language we use to describe our experiences MATTERS.

This is one of the things I’ll be delving into inside the program. Back to the writing cave…

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.
