Don’t Make Me Cry

Don’t Make Me Cry

I’ll admit it. I am a sensitive person. If someone criticizes me, I tend to take it personally. If someone comments on something that I do, I react. It’s in me. I think the only place I’ve built up a tolerance for sensitivity is in my writing. I think it was because in all my writing classes we had critiques so one had to build up the open-mindedness to hear and accept what others were saying. I just don’t feel or act the same way when it comes to something else. I can’t stand someone correcting me when I feel there’s no need. I get intimidated at times to even respond because it feels like I’m being attacked. I wish sometimes I wasn’t so sensitive to words being directed at me but I am. I feel hurt and even scared at times. It’s even caused me to rethink some decisions, which later have been regretted. I’ve heard always go with your first instinct but sometimes I feel like my first instincts suck.
