News Flash: If you have a girl, you have a sensitive girl.
This sensitivity obviously has so many benefits.
But remember that our greatest strengths are also our greatest weaknesses.
This knack for intimacy and relationship, that makes her the woman she is, also opens her up to hurt from those same bonds.
Protect her heart.
And let’s have mountains of empathy for the women in our lives who have been harmed like this.
It is my conclusion, based on these and other more rigorous studies, that the sensitivity of which I have written has a downside: adolescent girls and women are more easily wounded than males, and many of them experience a lifelong sense of inadequacy. The pain that results from being ridiculed, bullied, or left out as a child or teen—as well as from wounds originating within dysfunctional families—is remembered painfully thereafter.
