Sensitive

I get called "sensitive" all the time, and it's never meant as compliment. That combined with the zodiac sign of Cancer the Crab (emotional by nature) I seem to get the double whammy of stereotypes.  But have you ever thought that maybe some people are just too brash? Maybe it's not me at all. Maybe it's them.

Ok, maybe there's some stock to it all, zodiacs and personality, but not as much as some people want to add to it. When I hear, "You're too sensitive!", the only thought in my head, though hardly ever stated is, "Maybe you're just an offensive a-hole!". With all the bad raps us sensitive people seem to get, I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon the quote below. Here's to all my sensitive peeps! 


“Sensitive people are the most genuine and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they will end the friendship. They live with guilt and constant pain over unresolved situations and misunderstandings. They are tortured souls that are not able to live with hatred or being hated. This type of person needs the most love anyone can give them because their soul has been constantly bruised by others. However, despite the tragedy of what they have to go through in life, they remain the most compassionate people worth knowing and the ones that often become activists for the broken-hearted, forgotten and the misunderstood. They are angels with broken wings that only fly when loved.” ― Shannon L. Alder

  1. I'm also a super sensie! And being told you're "too sensitive" is really rude and invalidating. The people that say that sort of thing are probably just not very in touch with their own feelings.
