“You’re too sensitive!” She said, slamming the door as she left.
Well, you’re an IN-sensitive a**hole, I thought to myself, not having the nerve to actually say it out loud.
Welcome to the world of being highly sensitive in a world that still lacks in understanding.
Within the past few years I’ve come to the awareness that I’m a highly sensitive person (HSP). No. This does not mean I’m psychic (though I’m working on that). A person who is highly sensitive has a significantly fine-tuned nervous system—an energetic over-achiever, I suppose.
