🖐🏻 A bit about me - but a message to you too! Never be afraid or embarrassed about being sensitive. No matter how much or how little. _ I am a highly sensitive individual, and diagnosed with hyper-sensitivity. I’m the type of person who doesn’t just listen to your words, I listen to your use of words. I notice your tone of voice, your eye movements, your body language, your hand gestures, your subtle facial expressions. I can interpret your silence well and I can hear everything you don’t say in words. _ I can walk in to a room and notice the myriad of subtleties that lie within it. People’s moods, groups getting on well, groups not getting on well. Those feeling left out and those overly confident. I notice smells, pictures that are wonky, lights on and lights off, windows open, doors shut and if I’ve been before: new things and things that have moved. _ I notice when someone removes me from social media, or ignores my friend request, or has stopped liking my posts, or likes them more often. I notice their style of text message or email changes depending on their mood. I notice whether they say hello to me or not. _ And all of it is torture because it goes through your head all the time. Minute after minute. And I become super sensitive to whether I am liked or not when really, I just shouldn’t care! BUT I want to know WHY people don’t like me, what is wrong with me, what I’ve done wrong. _ There are some people who could hear you say a thousand words and still not understand you. And there are some people who will understand you without you even speaking a word. I am the latter. _ I’m a fixer. I like people to be happy and to make people happy. I am too hard on myself or roll over too easily if I think it’s for the best. I quite often neglect myself in that way. But equally I get far too stressed, anxious or annoyed if I feel those closest to me aren’t happy anymore, despite all my efforts. Therefore, understandable criticism is sometimes hard to hear. Because I feel like I’ve failed. _ Ultimately, there’s nothing wrong with me. My heart is in the right place and if this is you too then so is yours. Sensitive people should be cherished.
