“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

    some of us “sensitive people” are too damn compassionate and will give you too many chances before we finally kick you to the curb…but yeah, once we do…it is so over…and the users are so surprised that their free ride is over…they thought it would just go on forever…

      I agree with you 100% Delores. We do tend to give insensitive people too many changes, and when we finally do call them out on their bad behavior, they don’t seem to like it because they didn’t expect us to be assertive. Like you said they are so surprised that their free ride is over, and will not go on forever liked they assumed it would…

    I also agree with you Deloris. Yes us sensitive people are very compassionate. I hate it when people take it for a weakness. But once I kick you to the curb I am finished with you. To bad people don’t realize a true friend when they have one. Awesome post Bridgett. Thanks also to Shannon. Your forever friend Tustles Lake KTF

    thanks to all of you. I totally agree. it was a very long way to learn it’s a gift and not weakness. I love the comment ” earth bound angels” – thanks.

    I totally agree with Dolores;
    I’ve been in that same situation many times. However I made it my last over & over allowing takers to use me! They will do it until they find a better source of supple!! Simple; they think that they are worthy. When we no longer have something they need they discard. They are called “Narcissists” No more of them in my life:)

    sensitive we are to even go beyond our capacity to save someone,when most of the time betrayed to our most trusted,still we don’t stop because we hope,looking at the good side.—but once we ‘decide’,it’s finally over.

    I am this description!! My mother who I think hates me tried to put me down saying “She is too sensitive”!!
    My sister said “no way!! Look at all she’s been through!!”.. I was raised by a cactus
    Who over drank and ranted and raved !
    I am sensitive and I love me!! Thanks for that lovely post!

    I agree 100%! (Hurt us and you loose the priviledge of having us in your life). Janet is right on.

    Some of us are also Empaths…look it up, you may identify. I feel vibes so strongly it is hard to be in public places at times. But even I was fooled by a true Narcissist…beware! Love is indeed blind…but I will not fall into that trap again!

      Dolores…….exact same situation here!!.10yrs loving a narcissist,”obviously” i was oblivious to this.Once a social,bubbly,female… an empty lost soul.
      In order for these ppl to thrive in life,they befriend a strong loving individual.Once under their “spell” all your emotions&strengths will be abused to boost their egotistical selves!!.VERY good actors….beware all.PEACE!!

    Very true .

    I don’t see sensitivity as a weakness, either. It’s who I am, and I’d rather have this quality than insensitivity. I don’t tolerate those who think they have the authority to put a limit on someone else’s feelings (i.e., saying you’re “too” sensitive.) It’s none of their business, and doesn’t affect them. If I weren’t sensitive, I wouldn’t thrive in my vocations as someone who works with the disabled population (or at the very least, those who have socio-emotional and academic issues with speech and language skills), and as a musician, my sensitivity is a very valuable tool!! Those who are referring to being taken advantage of, in many cases, yes, we do attract the sociopaths. But once our sensitive intuitions kick in and something clicks, we become that much more empowered!

    I found myself in it 🙂 But I think a sensitive person looks soft outside but also strong enough inside 🙂

    Thanks Dolores for adding that “we” sensitives are also Empaths. I didn’t rely on that ability & wound up be sucked dry by a user until I finally said enough but now I embrace my sensitive nature as an empath and actively uss it all the time to help guide me. Thank you all for your beautiful responses. This post was wonderful to wake up to.

  24. Dolores September 13, 2014 Reply

    Thank you Shonkista …yes, it’s good to embrace this gift we’ve been given…painful as it can be. And Amy, you are so spot on… sensitivity is not a weakness as some who misunderstand us try to claim. How many times I have heard, “why are you so sensitive?” or,”Don’t be so sensitive!” .. accompanied by the sour look of disapproval…they have no idea and no right to say this.. we can use our empathy in these moments to realize that they just don’t get it, and they never will.

    I’ve heard somewhere that if someone asks you, “Why are you so sensitive”? then you should reply back to them, “Why are you so insensitive to other peoples feelings”?

  27. Dolores September 17, 2014 Reply

    Virginia…there are so many times I wish I would have said that! I just never thought of it. I will next time, thank you.

    My friend sent this to me. She is very very sensitive. I trip being there for her,but no matter what I say or do it turns into a fight. Maybe someone can enlighten me. She feels I’m insensitive to her when in reality, my other friends feels I’m a very good friend and very sensitive to others. She says I act like a child if my feelings get hurt, but when I say something or not say something or not let her help me she acts like a 2 year old. What do I do. Please help!!!!!!

    I agree with the feelings and sentiments of sensitive people. They are very shy and introvert, they never dare to come in the forefront,they are very sincere,, worth someone’s friendship..Anyone can trust them they nevet break the trust shown by some body. They have faith in God.

    In my old age, I came upon your words. I now understand what I’m all about, and I cherish what led me to find “sensitive people.”
