“Vulnerability is a strength.” What? Did I get that right? “Weakness –a strength!? The first time I heard this, I understood nothing. What did they mean? “Sensitivity is a strength.” Was that any better?
Well. Sensitivity – sensing the moods of others, being influenced by what others want, be concerned about not troding on people’s toes … Is that good? Isn’t that a risk of losing track of one’s own feelings and visions?
But if the ability to feel how others feel makes it easier to understand others and their strengths, weaknesses and talents?! Then it will be easier to work with them – build on dreams together!
From that perspective: How would humanity do without sensitivity?
Research shows that animals also have individuals with greater sensitivity than the others. For example, antelopes with this ability realises when the lion approaches and warns flock in time. These individual’s sensitive – strong – radar helps herd to survive. They become leader of their flocks. They have a large part of the animals’ development as a species.
Sensitivity is a strength, an asset, a talent for leadership!
