How can I stop being overly sensitive all the time?

My friends and my boyfriend sometimes take advantage of me for being a kind person and I'm a very sensitive person. I want to be a nice person but also be able to put my foot down when they take advantage of me or say something that bothers me. They say I need to stop being so sensitive everyday too.

  • Some people are more sensitive than others anyway. It's not a bad thing. You (and they) certainly should see it as a positive quality. I'd rather know someone who cared a lot, rather than didn't care. It's a gradual process but over time you can maybe help yourself by trying to take things less to heart that don't matter, ie if something small upsets you, look at whether it's worth it and try to let it go. I find as I've got older it's easier to just invest my time and emotions in things that are worth it.

  • I wish I knew. Honestly, counseling has helped me. If anything, I have a safe place to share
