Often we come across parcels and show pieces in showrooms with a tag of, Handle with care. At once our hands start handling those things very cautiously. The sole reason being, ‘Who will bear the cost of its damage? Better stay away.’
My dear friends, sensitive people are same like those things with an invisible tag of, Handle with care. They are this way either since childhood or circumstances force them to become so. The most common traits of sensitive people are, overthinking, assuming, taking things deep to heart, avoiding people, and most important, crying.
Being a sensitive person myself, I have heard statements like, “Stop crying, grow up.” “Why are you crying?” “Please stop crying, its not good for health.” “Be strong.”
Now, how is crying related to growing up? Tears flow when the heart is full, of children as well as adults. The reason of heart being full can be either sorrow or joy. But falling of tears is an involuntary act, which is just an expression of emotions. So let us not tell to grow up, to anyone who is crying hereafter.
“Why are you crying?”
Can sound offensive if asked by a wrong person, or at a wrong time. In our busy lives, we seldom care to go into details of a matter. And if you are not honestly concerned about the person, please do not ask this question. Trust me, if asked by someone who genuinely cares for you, also might hurt an emotional person deep down. Because people who have spent years with him/ her are definitely expected to know the soft, tender heart of the same. Try to figure out the reason from your end first. And only if you cannot, ask. But with a good intention. If you cannot, then leave the person alone.
When people say to stop crying as its not good for health, try to go in the depths of the reason. The person might not have any option but to cry. Sometimes when words fail to communicate the emotions, tears come to aid. Only the ones close to the person will be able to make out the cause of these salty flowing rivers.
The fuuniest statement
of all is when they say be strong. Physical trength has nothing to do with sensitivity. A sensitive person might handle physical tasks more efforlessly when needed. Also if the advicers cannot be emotional, they should not expect the other way round. Displaying emotions is a trait of in fact, strong people. To show what you are feeling, takes lot of courage and will power, along with a crystal clear heart. Do not take emotional people for granted, for sure. Because if not backed by anyone else, such people have God. They are fondly called as God’s children.
A person who has faced trauma
needs extra care and affection by their loved ones. Because they might be attacked anyways, verbally, personally, through texts or even gestures. People just comment, give advices, opinions, but rarely help. If you cannot do the last act, just leave these people alone. Words get etched on a soft heart and stay there forever. They wake up, live, and, sleep with those words thereafter. So be very careful while dealing with emotional people. They actually come with two tags – Handle with care or Stay away.
Go for the second option if you cannot do the first.
