So all this long life I've been one of those "over-sensitive" folks. Every comment gets to me, TV shows and books make me cry. I've been told forever I need to get a thicker skin and be less sensitive. I always just say "well, I'm paaaaaaassionate!" but you know what? I'm over it. Lots of people (including a few on this board) have told me I'm going to need to toughen up before I go to nursing school
. So, um, how do I do that, exactly? How do I get a thick skin without losing all my compassion and sensitivity? Has anyone "recovered" from hyper-emotality? Yes, I did make that word up just now.
Love to all
