Sometimes the strongest people can end up being the most sensitive and just because someone seems overly sensitive doesn’t mean they are not strong. We are all strong in our own ways.
Below I am going to go over some of the things that mean you are both strong and highly sensitive. Some of the strongest people I know tend to take things to heart that they shouldn’t. Just because you cannot see the sensitive side of everyone around you doesn’t mean it is non-existent.
7 Signs You Are Very Strong and Highly Sensitive:
1. You do not sugar coat things.
You do not sugar coat things. You say things that need to be said when they need to be said. While you know hurting other people’s feelings is not something you enjoy, you do like to be honest. Being as honest as possible is very important.
2. You are not willing to let your standards down at all.
You refuse to let people lower your standards. You do not hesitate to make sure your standards are enforced. You do not hold back in this manner.
3. You are willing to ask for help when you need it.
You don’t hesitate to ask for the help you need when you need it. You don’t sit back and neglect yourself when the problem can be resolved easily. While asking for help is not something a lot of people are willing to do you know that it is important sometimes. While you do not overuse the help of others, you get things done.
You don’t do hookups or meaningless relationships. You look for real connections when it comes to the world of romance. You don’t want someone that is going to leave you hanging, you want someone that is going to be there for you through all the rough spots in life.
5. You become overwhelmed but never give up.
You become overwhelmed a lot, we all do. That being said, you are able to continue on and persevere through all the shit his world throws your way. You do not let the problems of others bring you down and when something is bothering you, you address it.
You are a good listener. You are there for the people who matter in your life. When someone needs a shoulder to cry on, you are always the one they come to.
7. You are not afraid to call out those who need to be called out.
You are more than willing to call out people who need to be called out. When someone is doing something that they shouldn’t be doing you want to make sure they know the consequences they might end up facing. You are too caring to not try and warn them.
