Sensitive people are often considered dramatic or attention-seekers. While it might ring true with some, I believe that there’s certain prejudice attached with this word. Being sensitive isn’t a bad thing. Period.
When someone feels deeply about something and sheds tears, then he/she is being a cry-baby. If something unfortunate has happened but he/she isn’t showing signs of depression or hysteria, then it is insensitive on their part.
How can anyone decide what is or isn’t the right way to feel or express? Just like everyone’s fingerprints are different, so are the wirings of their brain and heart. They do what they do because it seems right to them.
I’m emotional and overthink or overreact at times, but that is who I am. Unless someone can enter my mind and see what torment I go through for seemingly unimportant issues, I should be spared from any sermon.
For people who know me I’m a damaged incorrigible emotional wreak, but a dependable person nevertheless. Those who don’t know me, well, why bother about them? My life and my challenges are my concern and I’m capable of handling them well.
