So Sensitive That I Think Something Is Wrong With Me...

I have never met a person more sensitive then myself. I cry over ridiculous things and if I don't cry, I feel really upset, touched or overcome by emotion that it is hard for me to stay in control and be logical.
I am very in touch with other people and believe I have a great sense of intuition.
I work with children and it can be very moving..Like when a child comes in unsettled but then after a period of visits, they come in happy and end up having a great time. Or the times when they say *I love you*, the huge hugs and kisses and when they achieve something. It really moves me, sometimes even to tears.
I also get upset at other peoples pain. Like a co worker whom I am fairly close to and her mum died. I saw her sitting at a table at work and she looked so sad that it made me want to cry. Then I went over and just cuddled her and it made me want to cry again.
I get upset when people criticize or reject me and always take it personally. I am very hard on myself and take on a lot of blame even if it isn't always deserved.
The easiest way to destroy me is to tell me that I have hurt you.
I worry all the time about other people and would be mortified if I hurt someone, it is something that really worries me.
In a way my sensitivity is a good thing as it means I have a great capacity to love and I feel the nice emotions in life really strongly. However it isn't always a good thing as I get upset SO easily and it ends up making me feel really down. I also think that people can exploit sensitivity so I try and hide it from people. I think that some see sensitive people as weak and that's not true.It just means we feel things a lot more strongly then others.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I don't watch the news often because it makes me cry. Other people I know seem to think its a bit over the top, but its so SAD alot of the time. I've cried because of things I've seen in the paper too. <br />

It is ok to be sensitive, its just part of who we are!
