I can say for myself that I am a very sensitive person.
Psychologists say that one in five people is an extremely sensitive person, which is an innate trait.
A sensitive person experiences certain other ‘normal’ phenomena more intensely, extremely.
More than others, they are aware of the barely perceptible because their brains process information differently and delve deeper into the things around them. They experience emotional stress very strongly. Dishonesty and injustice hurt them because they think all the people in the world are good, kind. They experience love and friendship intensely and deeply.
Often, extremely sensitive individuals protect themselves by withdrawing or attacking.
Let us not avoid all the circumstances that we fear could trigger sensitivity in us, but let us learn the necessary skills we need to cope better with these difficult circumstances.
