Sensitive people.

“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. Being sensitive sometimes is the worst thing that can happen in your life.We are just really misunderstood and want people to not take advantage of us.

  2. It’s nice to know that there are actually people in this world like this writer Shannon L. Alder that understands people like us exist. It’s an accurate description word for word how we are and appreciate’s it. I appreciate the acknowledgement. Being sensitive is just part of a person’s genetic make up. I hate when rude people try to take advantage of my kindness and feel that I’m weak if I don’t complain yet tell me I’m too sensitive if I do. These are the same people who get bent out of shape when you’ve had enough of their madness and crumble when you put them in check. Just be kind to everyone.

  3. My goodness, it’s incredible how accurate this is! One of my favourite sayings is: “don’t mistake my kindness for weakness”, I actually have a version of this as a tattoo as well. As much as I try hard to be kind to others and wish that people were kinder to me, I have to known to finish a friendship and not look back if I have been betrayed – I have a very long memory for those who hurt me. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being sensitive, there shouldn’t be negative connotations around it. Hugs to all my fellow sensitives 🙂

  4. So great poetry….love this so much…

    Indeed, I hate myself for being so sensitive…that the moment I feel I am betrayed, I choose to give up friendship because I do not want to be hurt more.

    To keep my sanity and retain my self.esteem…..
