Are you sensitive? Do you take things personally?

  • Not usually. I teach school, so I have learned to let certain things just roll off. However, there are times that I just can't let it go. Then, I have to go and talk to some one so I can get over it. I'm not one to let things fester.

  • Yes. It is the mean or negative comments that hurt the most.

  • yes, i do! ever since i was young i hate being criticized, even if it is 'constructive'. i could never be a chef because i would be so pissed off if someone didn't like my cooking. i could never do any kind of job where the success was dependent on someone's opinion of me. it would be great if they tell me i did good, but if they had any kind of problem i would be a wreck lol

  • I try not to be. It really depends on the situation. I can take a lot b4 it gets personal. However, when I have pms I am very sensitive.

  • I used to be. I think that in becoming an adult I've grown a lot less sensitive about things. I over heard co workers making fun of me through our office wall the other day and it really rolled right off my back. I was actually surprised by how unhurt I was by it. I used to take everything to heart, now I just don't have the time or energy to waste on it. I just want to get my job done, go home and snuggle with my son. If people like me, that's great, if they don't I really can't find the energy to care.

  • I used to be sensitive. Now I try to take most things as constructive critisism. Sometimes though, crazies say some downright mean and nasty things, and sometimes that gets to me.
    Here on cafemom, I'm not too sensitive.
