“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

    An excellent book to read to help understand yourself better is “The Highly Sensitive Person” by Elaine N. Aron. A friend recommended it when she interviewed me for an assignment toward her degree in Social Work/Psychology. It helped tremendously.

    My husband does not tell me he loves or misses me and said that if he didn’t then I would not be with him and that I should feel it through his actions and words but I don’t. If anything I feel distant and not loved respected or cared for

    Anything that will destroy our friendship I quit it .It seems I always love ❤ protecting my friends and relationship

    This is me. I will be your best friend, a friend you can trust. But, if you hurt me, and I cannot trust you, I will not be your friend. I give a lot of myself and hope to get back in return. Just a “thinking of you, once in awhile” will do.

    Shannon,, you have described me beautifully, l am that man lve lived through Hurt- deceitfulness -lies- betrayal- destruction -hate – given by the one that l lavished love & care & faithfulness on for twenty four years l am now in the gutter and the hatefulness keeps coming I struggle through each day …l will soldier on in the hope that things will improve.. isnt it funny that when you are down , nobody wants to know you ??.. Eddie
