Working on not being so sensitive is extremely hard. I am a blubbering mess usually even when angry when it comes to any kind of conflict. I do believe being sensitive is a good trait to have, but sometimes I can’t get my point across correctly, or I hide in a shell because of my teary eyes during any kind of conflict. Even if it’s not conflict; watching a show, seeing a cute old couple holding hands…
Up until 2 years ago, I never cried at a single thing, in a matter of fact I used to have to force myself to cry or else I was a monster. Seeing my mother unconscious on the floor, hearing she has had a heart attack, even a funeral for someone I knew.
But not now, now the tears flow like a steady river.
I’ve been trying techniques like;
- Thinking about something else
- Looking at something distracted
- Telling myself to buck up
When I become a paralegal, I need to be able to keep myself together. When I get into arguments with people close to me, I need to be able to display my true emotion and get my words out right. Crying does not mean I am sad, I am still mad at you
