I’ve grown awfully tired of hearing people use the word ‘sensitive’ as an insult. It baffles me that people still use phrases like, “Oh they are far too sensitive” in a negative way because being a sensitive person is actually a good thing.
I would have been offended if someone said I was being overly sensitive when I was in school, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve realised that there are so many positive aspects to being sensitive.
Sensitive people are known for being extremely intuitive, which helps when one of your close friends is feeling down or acting differently. I worry about the people I love a lot, and if that makes me ‘overly sensitive’ then I’ll happily be that way.
