Why I'm happy in being a sensitive person

August 17, 2016


After looking at my life and my own personality, I have come to the conclusion that I must be quite a sensitive person. I mean, you could joke about something with me, and I’d most likely think you were telling the truth. Yeah I know, I’m sorry.

I recently read a very eye opening post on why being sensitive may be a good thing. I always wished I wasn’t such a sensitive person, and that it was such an utterly bad trait to have. Sigh, how I wished I was more thick skinned. But I have recently come to the realisation that there can be some good that comes out of being sensitive. Yes, I totally just basically said that I’m happy in being a sensitive person.

I read that sensitive people tend to understand people more. This is because when they get hurt, they know how much it can hurt. They don’t like seeing others in that kind of position because they understand. I feel like this explains me to a T. I tend to put myself in the position of the person who’s hurting and will do anything to make them happy again. Whether that’s dropping everything at 11 at night, or travelling 2 hours to help a friend in need. I thrive off being there for others because I know how it feels to be so alone.

I mean, you can bet that I’d whisk you away on a day trip to the zoo, or to the beach just to make sure you’re okay again. I’m cute like that you see, wink wink.

The same post I read also highlighted the point that highly sensitive people love to go on adventures and are more in tune with nature and the world around them. Considering I always have the need to explore new places, go on adventures, and totally obsess over the sky; this has opened my eyes to the most down to earth facors that can come out of being sensitive. If you want to make me happy, literally take me on an adventure… even if it’s in your back garden to look at the sky. I’d probably love you forever for that, there and then.

Sensitive people are more likely to also have racing minds, with 5,000 thoughts roaming around their head at once. Considering I created this blog to help put all these erratic thoughts into words, I think it’s safe to say that getting deep and opening my eyes to the real world around me may be a good thing.

And finally I’m such an unbelievably ‘needy’ person and I totally hate that. I get very insecure sometimes, okay. Just reassure me that you don’t hate me and you actually mean what you say, and I’ll be all good. I cannot be lied to. That’s the thing about sensitive people, the truth hurts them more than the average person; but they’ll take it better than constant lies.

For some, being sensitive may be a bad trait to have, but for me it’s a blessing in disguise. By being sensitive and having a deeper understanding of things, I am able to continuously remind people how much they mean to me because I understand how it feels. I always give people the benefit of the doubt, because I put myself in their shoes. Maybe that’s what makes me open to getting hurt again, however.

I may be a sensitive person, and it may get on your last nerve. But I’d rather be sensitive and have my eyes so open to the world and people around me than the alternative. I’m happy living my ‘lil sensitive life.

Do you class yourself as quite a sensitive person? Or if not, do you know anyone who is quite sensitive? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment box below!

Love and happiness always,

  1. Aww this is such a great post Becca, thank you for writing it! I’d say I’m quite sensitive at times & this post has definitely opened my eyes as to why that can be a good thing; you don’t want to hurt people the way that you’ve been hurt before because you know how it feels. Lovely read, thanks for sharing xx

  2. I definitely see myself as a sensitive person as well and I think what I can relate most to out of the things you’ve mentioned is being understanding towards others ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also the same when it comes to needing reassurance that people actually like me sometimes.

    I’ve been loving your blog so much lately and I really enjoy reading your posts/thoughts. Just wanted to let you know that x

  3. Love this post and opened up a few things to me such as being more adventurous etc. I think I fall half into the sensitive person part as I care so much for others and making sure they are ok but not a lot gets to me either

  4. Sometimes it can suck feeling like you’re needy, but if you’re adventurous and an understanding person it’s probably worth it! It’s better to care too much over things rather than not at all

  5. Defiantly can relate the amount of times I’ve been called sensitive, but I always think we understand people’s pain and we never want to see that. Great post Hun always feel like I can relate you.

  6. I absolutely adore everything that you post, especially things to do with self love etc. I’m a really sensitive person, but you’ve made me realise that it isn’t a bad thing… Xx

  7. Love this post! I also think I’m a sensitive person, I think it has all of the benefits you describe with a few pitfalls such as really taking negative things to heart and also worrying about how I come across! But as you say overall I think it allows us a higher level of emotional intelligence. Jessica Ann xxx

  8. This post has made me SO happy – because I’m a sensitive person too! I always thought it was a negative trait (I cry at literally EVERYTHING) but I should just appreciate that’s how I am. And you’re right – a sensitive person is a very empathetic person – and that’s a GOOD thing!

  9. Thank you so much for this post! My sensitive nature is something I’ve struggled with forever! This past year I’ve grown to love that part of me and really understand that I wouldn’t be the person I am today without it. โค๏ธ

  10. I love this. Only recently have I really noticed how much I feel everything so deeply- I’m sensitive and I’m proud because feeling everything so much in life is points in time that really make us ‘alive’ this may sound crazy but I would rather cry, scream, laugh, smile etc etc in every occasion than pass moments by without so much as an emotion effecting me! I would love to do a post similar to this and include reflections on how people respond differently and why that’s ok! This has inspired me to tell my story!
    Lots of virtual love x

  11. Sometimes being a bit more sensitive than others can be a good thing! Some may say needy but others may say a great friend that is always there for you! I know a couple of people that could do with being a bit more sensitive x

  12. I love posts about self-acceptance. I’m happy you are learning to accept your sensitivity, I too am quite sensitive so now I will try to learn to accept that part of me more. Thank you for this post! โค๏ธ

  13. After reading this I think I’ve now come to the same conclusion that I am definitely a sensitive person! Especially the adventures and being in touch with nature and wanting to help other people because you know how it feels to be alone. This is such a wonderful insight into your personality, you’re obviously an amazing person to be around. I look forward to reading more of your posts <3 xo

  14. Oh my gosh, I’m exactly the same! The tiniest thing can happen to someone else (e.g. someone says a joke to them) and I imaging them being really upset and embarrassed and I guess that’s a good thing because it means I’m more caring towards people!

  15. Great post. I’m very sensitive and sometimes find it hard to see the positive side of it. You’ve reopened my eyes. x

  16. This is the perfect post for a sensitive person like myself to read. You’ve explained each and every reason why it’s good to be a sensitive person in that you’ll understand, comfort, and support people. I love that you mention about going on adventures and appreciating nature more because I tend to do that too. Just today, I sat outside in the garden and appreciated the light breeze of the air fly past the grass and bushes. Thank you for sharing this post. It always nice to meet other sensitive people. ๐Ÿ’•

  17. I get told so much that I’m an overly sensitive person so this was such a wonderful post to read! It made me feel proud to be me, thank you xo
