Are You too Sensitive?
Do you tear up while watching the news? Do you take things too personally? Are you overwhelmed when someone shares their struggles with you?
Sensitivity is the ability to perceive or feel things easily. It can be a positive trait, as it allows us to be more empathetic and compassionate with others. However, too much sensitivity can also be a problem.
Here are some of the signs of an oversensitive person:
- Extremely emotional
- Very compassionate and generous
- Easily offended by criticism
- Feel isolated and different from everyone
- Intuitive and sensitive to external stimuli
- Tend to overthink and worry
- Often feel tired and overwhelmed
Highly sensitive people are more affected by certain stimuli, such as tension, violence, and conflict. This can lead them to avoid situations that make them feel uncomfortable. They may also be more attuned to beauty and emotionality, and they may feel deeply moved by the beauty they see around them.
Here are some tips on how to manage sensitivity:
- Identify your triggers
- Set boundaries
- Take breaks
- Talk to someone
- Practice mindfulness
- Get enough sleep
- Eat a healthy diet
- Exercise regularly.
