“Sensitive people should be treasured. They love deeply and think deeply about life. They are loyal, honest, and 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.” – Anonymous
Sensitive people process information a little differently, and this is where it makes all the difference. They focus on each detail and sometimes tend to overthink about it. The pain and agony that they go through almost every day of their lives are because they feel and care too much. Either about what others might feel or say or regarding their own judgments about self. They usually keep to themselves, but there should be no shame in expressing your own feelings.
It is because of their deep feelings and thinkings, their health is affected. They are hurt easily and they tend to eat and sleep too much or too little when they are hurt this affects their health in the long term. Emotional sensitivity is good but too much of everything is bad.
Being soft-hearted and feeling intensely is not a symptom of being weak, it means that you are more alive than anyone with more feelings and compassion.
