People say

that one of my biggest problems is my sensitivity. I agree it is a huge problem for me. I am very sensitive. If someone teases me, I take it to heart. If I see someone struggling, I am very sensitive to their needs, I take their problems on bord as well. I cant help it. Its just how I am. Its in my nature to care.
Does anyone else have this ongoing problem?
And I wonder is there even a solution? I cant not care about people. I could however not take the things people say to me to heart.
I do think though that most people have a similar problem. Yes there are those who are very insensitive, there are those who could care less about what people think of them or have to say to them, but deep down I feel most people are good, kind, caring people deep down.
Do you agree?

  1. I agree, I think most people are caring, sensitive people deep down, but sometimes society and the world in general makes us shield our inner feelings. It is sad that there are people out there who have no qualms about taking advantage of sensitive souls. It is so hard to tell one type of person from the other though. 🙂

  2. If you find a solution let me know. ☺ I’ve been told my whole life I am “overly sensitive”. I do get hurt very easily and I am also very sensitive to other people’s pain. I think people like us that have experienced deep pain don’t ever want other people to hurt. I think people who are classed as “overly sensitive” should be cherished. We seem to be a rare breed and we REALLY do care about others deeply. Its a good trait even if its painful for us.

  3. Be proud of your sensitivity. In this world where people are encouraged to be cut-throat and self/serving, it’s a beautiful quality that reflects your depth of feeling and compassion. I too have had people call me ‘sensitive’ as if it was a bad thing or a bad word. I used to be ashamed of it but I’m learning to embrace it.
