    People who don't really know me very well, don't see that I have a sensitive side. They just assume that I'm a ***** all the time. I think that if they knew all of the things that I've been through in my life, they would understand that I'm strong, but I also have a sensitive...

    Yes - You Can Be Both

    I have been accused of wearing my heart on my sleeve - yes, I do. When I see someone who hurts, or needs something, I will always be there. I think it is part of being human - when you see someone who is down and out - to pay it forward. KEep the positive karma...

    Not Strong, Per Se

    Naturally, I'm a pretty sensitive person, but over the years, my skin has been really thickened. I think the key thing about me is that I'm resilient; if you say something or do something that hurts me, I'll deal with it and move on. I'm not going to torture myself about the past...

    Being sensitive is a wonderful thing!

    It enables discernment. I can feel the kind of vibes I'm surrounded by. After having viewed a flat, I showed the photos to my eldest son. He said "if it's good, get it!"...And then, "No!!!..., I don't want to live without you", my youngest son exclaimed. Their father grunted...

    My Contradiction

    I am very sensitive, it's true. I worry about hurting others and about being considerate of others. And harsh words make me cry and hurt deeply. And I hate confrontations and arguments and try my best to avoid it. Yet... even through my tears and pain, if someone is pushing me...

    Being Sensitive Is Being a Whimp!!!!

    It's been puzzling to me how I could be so sensitive with my feelings, but strong enough to get through any challenges or hardships.  In my mind I could not equate one with the other.  I always thought I was weak because I could feel the hurt, pain and...

      Sensitive.   I was almost thirty, it was Christmas, and my brother said something that was harsh, for me. I confronted him on it, asked him questions, and told him how it felt to me. He said: You are too sensitive. And my mother, who raised sons not her daughter...

    When I give, I do it wholeheartedly.

    I am caring, compassionate and don't keep track of things given and received. I'm genuine and know the value of my heart. I have a strong sense of justice, which determines my deeds. When I sense that things start getting unpleasantly imbalanced, when my sincerity and...

    Tender Leaves Of Hope

    The existence of universe and this life is a combination of opposites like pain and pleasure, misery and comfort, which subsist by the virtue of each other and are invariably harmonised. Most of us regard the whole life as the one side that we conspicuously get acquainted with. A...

    Sensitive For Some Things

    I can handle a lot of stress and keep together. But in some ways I can be very sensitive. At work, when a colleague is harsh or competitive (in a bad way) or bitchy I really find it hard to handle. At the moment I was asked to mentor a whole team as they are new. I changed...

    I was taken away from my human family 14 years ago. At the age of 6 my master had killed my father and taken me to his mansion where I there found out I was not myself. I could see clear in the distance and hear a heartbeat from a mile away. I was thrown into a pit of my fellow...
