Just wondering if anyone else on here is like me in the fact that they react badly to harsh words or sometimes even just blunt words and even when someone is not being mean you still react sensitively? Because I have that issue, actually I've always had this issue - I guess I was born with it, I take everything either seriously or react way too sensitively towards it.

I've been told numerous times that I'm too hypersensitive and to stop and change this, but I can't stop as it's something that's a part of me. 

I've heard that its a starseed thing - especially from those from higher realms but I just wanted to clarify to make sure.

Yes, let everything and everyone be your teacher :-)

Thank you back  & Namaste

I am good enough as I am, in any clothes, just as I am. Because Iam :)

*smiles*...Musuhi, i am honored to be a soul sister to your mother

and perhaps to have made a difference to your day.

love, addy

"To live well is the best revenge" - what an amazing coincidence - my mum says it to me all the time, when I come to her and we talk about me feeling a thirst for revenge - it always calms me down. My dear father taught me that too. So cool you reminded me that. My mum is also in her sixties and also been through a lot - I must tell her I've met you, she'll be happy to be aware of her next soul sibling :)

Thank you, Adeomus, I feel much lighter now.

Hypersensitivity is being an Empath and I believe all Starseed are Emapthic. I admit I am the same way. I'll take things out of context or otherwise. Even when someone says they're only joking, I didnt take it that way and feel hurt even if it was a joke.
Embrace and love who you are! Blessings!

The problem is you know or felt what they were saying was not meant as a joke in their head. Myself it took a long time to accept the fact that when what a person is thinking doesn't match their words meant they were lying. There are other clear signs as well.

I had to learn to ignore what a person said to me if it had no bearing on my personal safety. In relationships.. well it became a bitch. People even on this site in general fail to catch on that you are lying to someone who knows you are lying. Just being polite not calling you out on it. :-)

Amusing in a way that people even here on this website fail to change their ways with all the sensitives around.

Cheers and Love & Light


To be sensitive to words said by someone, even if they didn't sounded offensive... it's the ransom for being empath. We can sense the intents behind the words. However, we can also be fooled by that "gift", so we have to remain cautious and to not jump at people's throats too quickly. Most empaths that i met forgive easily and try to see the best in everyone... so we tend to be confuse between our good will and the things we often sensing. So to learn how to shield ourselves is more than a necessity to avoid being perceived as bipolar crackpots freaks who gets offended for no reasons. With our natural ease to see the best in anyone (and give second, third, fourth chances) and because we can sense people's distress, we tend to attract toxic people. As empathy could be see as a gift, it can easily be feel as a malediction.



One thing that helped me was to stop caring if people said harsh things to me,i thought to my self,there the ones with the problem, not me,i don't need to take on there shit,what goes on in there mind is there problem,and if they feel the need to be harsh or hurtful,so what,that's there life,i have no control over what they think or do,you don't actually have to let it in and affect you,before it gets to that point,stop it,dont take it in,you actully have the choice lol and think,just because they said it,its true,i bet most of these people are running in a unconscious program,because if they were present,and mindfuly aware,they wouldn't be doing so much of that behaviour
Dont walk around open in your heart ,guard it,and choose what u let in.☺

I think this is what Asar said - shielding. It is needed, especially when you work with people. I always try to give my best, I fail sometimes - lack of shielding I suppose. But children teach me a lot, also about how to remain pure while interracting with others - still lots to learn :)

Btw I see you are a carer too, greetings :)

Oh thank you very much,nice to make acquaintance,thanks for the welcome, its great to be with some open people and chat.☺


Yes, I absolutely feel this. For example, if someone says something with a negative tone, or they sound frustrated, sometimes it can make me burst into tears and I will feel bad for a few days. The wrong look, the wrong tone of voice, the wrong word, can make me so sad. Even simple things that people didn't mean to hurt me can make me so sad.

I often feel I need to get a thicker skin. But then I think, Why do I need a thicker skin? Shouldn't people be nicer so I don't need a thick skin? But then, I think, I don't know how I will survive in this world without a thick skin.

I think I'm trying to find a balance between my sensitivity and learning how to live with confidence.
