Why Am I So Sensitive?

 
 

Dear GoodTherapy.org,

I think I’m more sensitive than most people. I get offended or my feelings get hurt really easily. Even things that don’t directly affect me … well, affect me.

I’m as sensitive as I know how to be, if that makes sense. Is there a way to learn how to be less sensitive? If something makes me feel angrysadanxiousguiltyshamefulfearful, or jealous, is there anything I can do about it? I worry that something is wrong with me because I can’t stop myself from feeling these things.

 

My boyfriend has told me over and over I need to stop being so sensitive and I need therapy. He’s not the only one who has said I’m too sensitive. It upsets me (probably because I’m so sensitive). I can’t win. Why am I so sensitive? —Easily Hurt
