Possessing a highly sensitive nature means having remarkably receptive senses, both physical and emotional. It is having a body and heart made of glass while living in a world full of clumsy and careless people.
It’s being vulnerable in a world full of cruel, savage and insensitive individuals.
It’s being a fragile dandelion in the wind.
So, would you say that you’re a sensitive creature?
If the answer is yes, keep on reading because these are 8 things highly sensitive people should never have to deal with:
1. BOTTLING UP THEIR EMOTIONS
Their emotions are like the scariest and most powerful hurricane. It’s like a heavy rainstorm that cannot be stopped. All they can do to actually survive it is to face the force within them and endure those powerful sensations.
These human beings feel everything too deeply. They cannot suppress their real emotions and they cannot deny their feelings. The only wise thing is to give in to them and let them out.
2. BRUTAL CRITICISM
I’m not saying that every criticism is bad criticism. Constructive criticism, for example, is an essential tool for learning and developing certain skills in life.
However, when it comes to highly sensitive people, this just doesn’t apply to their reality. Every critic towards them is most likely to be perceived as an attack.
Sadly, these remarkable creatures take it much more personally than they should, so they’ll do anything to avoid criticism at any cost.
3. THE PRESSURE OF MAKING RASH AND IMPULSIVE DECISIONS
If there’s anything highly sensitive people particularly hate, then that’s making rash and impulsive decisions. People who have a vulnerable heart and a fragile soul think about everyone.
They will second guess themselves and their decisions when it comes to other people. Because hurting someone in order to please their selfish needs is just not the way life goes.
4. DISTURBING AND UNSETTLING CONTENT
These incredibly kind and compassionate people have a weak and fragile heart. One that should never be submitted to gruesome, and horrifying scenes of fake murder or torturing. Why would someone enjoy a horror film?
5. RUDE, INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR
It’s simply inexplicable and confusing how can people be so rude and disrespectful towards each other. People with highly sensitive souls will never understand the wrath of the 21st century. Because within their pure hearts, there’s nothing but real, genuine love.
6. ANNOYING SOUNDS
You may not notice your annoying habit of constantly twitching or tapping your feet, but that’s why highly sensitive people will be there to tell you and make you stop.
Repetitive, loud and annoying sounds drive these people crazy. I believe there’s something to do with their desperate need for undisrupted peace. So, please, stop it already.
7. LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE
This one is a given. People who have sensitive nature are hyper-aware to the external stimuli around them. They pick up on every emotion, every sound, every step, every breath, every smell, every noise, every movement. So, you can only imagine what happens to their brain when they are in a room full of people.
8. LACK OF SLEEP
Sleep deprivation is a serious issue that has a severe effect on their health. So, when a highly sensitive person suffers from a lack of sleep, it doesn’t only make them tired, but it also draws all their energy throughout the day.
We already know that these people are prone to fatigue and over-exhaustion just by standing in a large group of people. But, insomnia… Insomnia literally breaks their harmonious routine and takes away all of their strength.
To all of you amazing human beings who are reading this article. Take care and protect yourself. If you don’t do it, nobody will!
