Are you overly sensitive? I know a man that is so sensitive that he makes me look insensitive. I am very sensitive and empathetic, but this man worries all the time about what people think.
I had never seen anything like it until one day I received a call that he died. I felt terrible. No, I didn't do anything. He just dropped dead of a heart attack, and no one was surprised. I learned early on in life that you just can't please everyone.
Someone told me that half of the people you meet will like you and half will not. It's just chemistry. Given that as a possible fact, it has made me less vulnerable to criticism. My mother, however, is 90-years-old, and she is the most sensitive person I have ever met.
If I don't tell her I love a few times in every phone call, she will call me back crying. What's the deal? So now, I start a conversation with her telling her I love her just to cover myself. Wow, so are you overly sensitive?
