    Do you think being highly sensitive is a part of SM? My feelings are hurt so easily.

    I read somewhere that we tend to be more sensitive to others – which I completely relate to. My feelings get hurt, but I wouldn’t say easily. And when they are hurt, it takes a LOT for them to be really hurt. So I’m not certain. could be that my life just has changed me to take more before I’m hurt. I don’t know

    I did my fair share of crying after the acceptable age where boys are allowed to cry (around 3 yrs old, hah). I think some of us learn to be sensitive only about the things we care about, and others put up a wall around their hearts to keep anybody from hurting them. I’ve read about SM’s being more sensitive too (wikipedia?). I don’t think it’s bad to be sensitive. I guess I just put on a brave face.

    I am very sensitive but that goes into other areas as well – energetically sensitive. Psychically sensitive.

    Sensitive to other people’s thoughts and feelings. I AM sensitive to criticism when it’s done behind my back.

    But mostly, I’m just sensitive having most people near me at all. I need a bit of space, otherwise I get overwhelmed and lose my “center”. I pick up on too much information when I’m near to others for long periods of time.

    I think over the years, I’ve tempered the “hurt feelings” reaction, with understanding of where the other person is coming from. And if someone is deliberately mean to me, I just get angry and state how I feel and how what they’ve done is b.s. All my childhood I played nice and rarely got angry…. but about the time I became a mother, my feelings just came out and I was ok with that. When I’m angry, I don’t apologize, I let it out, and I’m over it just as quickly, and it helps me be a happier person overall. I don’t hold it in. I don’t internalize stuff. If I’ve got a question, I ask it.

    But I was NOT this way as a child. Took a lot of working on my self – learning to accept my own feelings (and expressing them) as being valid!

    I am only sensitive to one thing. If you want to know it, pm me! lol .

    I also searched the SM on the google and I have read about the ANXIETY DISORDER being the cause of SELECTIVE MUTISM. It said that we inherit them from our parents to which I really believe ’cause my mother also has an SM. 😉
