I found this article.
It’s very helpful, so I wanted to share it.
I have always been sensitive, but I pretended not to be. It worked for a while. Lately, I have become even more sensitive, so I can’t pretend not to be sensitive any more. It’s just too obvious. The changes are not seen on the outside, so some people think I’m just trying to be special.
(Some people are insecure like that. I suppose they think it’s up to me to not be who I am so they could feel safe and not have their world-view challenged. I can see how living like that could be problematic for everyone involved. In any case, being sensitive is not ‘special’, as there are lots and lots of sensitive people.)
Sometimes I think I would like to be not-sensitive. I’m not sure how that would happen, though ^^;
Sometimes I think there is something wrong with people who are not-sensitive. Those thoughts are not very nice and I feel bad, but when I see friends and family do all kinds of weird stuff without being affected in the least, while I’m in tears or nauseous or just plain uncomfortable to the point where I want to run and hide… I start to wonder.
Maybe there is something wrong with all of us.
Or maybe everything is just as it should be.
(The last option makes the most sense, so I’m going to go with that.)
