Highly sensitive people are typically seen as being weak or broken at some level. Sensitivity is not a weakness or a defect though. Don’t try to hide it or numb it.
Maybe instead take on a few new habits that will make you even stronger in the face of a harsh world.
1. Don’t look for someone to complete or fix you.
You shouldn’t be looking for partners or friends to complete you. You should complete yourself. And ditch the idea that you’re broken and need to be fixed. Just find ways to make yourself happy.
