If you're a sensitive person, then you probably don't have enemies. People like you because you care, respect their feelings and lifestyle and listen to them when they speak. You probably have no probably getting girls unless you're just weird in some other ways or just sentitive to the point that you cry a lot . Now, I'm not talking about being so sensitive that you cry like a baby or get really unreasonable, but to the point that you think about how other feels and you're in tune with your own feelings. Like if someone screw up their job, you don't go yell at them but instead make an effort to help them correct the problem in a nice/kind way. But on the flip side, most people aren't like you so they might say things or do things that hurt you. Story of my life. I get bothered by critcisms from my parents and family all my life, and from friends and coworkers occasionally. I don't forget things. That's the problem. I don't let go easily. So being a sensitive person, you go through and try to explain away why they did what they did. That method never works. Sometime, I wish I would just let go of things and be an insentive person so I'll be happier. Another problem: because you're trying so hard to respect people and be a gentleman, when you do get bottled up inside and your are fed it, you blow up. Boy do I blow up! It's like a Jekyll and Hyde for me. Now I'm not the type that don't argue and let people push me around, it's just I try very hard to have manners and treat people like how I would like to be treated. This never work. Has anyone ever accomplish overcoming their sensitivity? I try so hard to let arguments go, past hurt feelings to go away, and don't let minor words and things to bother me, but I just can't do it. Books don't help because the more you read, the more sensitive you become. Yes it's true. The more you understand feelings, the more you respect other people's feelings and create an even greater gap between yourself and others. It works wonderful for girls all my life but boy do I get hurt a lot. I guess starting this thread is wrong too sense I'm again disecting feelings. What's your thoughts?
