I once had a friend who was aware that I was supporting a friend emotionally. His advice was to leave her alone because people will take advantage of you and friends will be ungrateful to you. All this cynicism that came out of him painted a picture and made me realize I wasn’t too sensitive. Most people have been hurt and put up a wall of cynicism and spew out ideas like that. I don’t ever want to be that kind of person. 5 years ago

Often times, when I’ve needed a shoulder to cry on or an ear to kvetch into, I’m told that I shouldn’t be so sensitive. All I can say is these people were being insensitive towards me. Trying to squash my sensitive side has only added more scar tissue and warps what feelings need to be dealt with. 6 years ago
