Emotional sensitivity is healthy, but at a certain point sensitivity can end up being detrimental. Manage your strong feelings so they are your allies, rather than enemies. Over-sensitivity may lead you to assume slights that you imagined, or are not intentional. Misinterpreting constructive, everyday interactions can limit your ability to lead a happy, healthy life. Balance your sensitivity with common sense, confidence and resilience so that you do not over-react to life's everyday events.
