6 Tips On How To Behave Around A Very Sensitive Person
We all know sensitive people. You can’t escape them, and that’s not a bad thing. Sensitive people teach us compassion, empathy, and kindness.
Below are six tips on how to behave around someone who’s sensitive. Hopefully you’re able to take these recommendations and utilize them in your everyday life! If not, at least you know them for the future.
#6. Nobody wants to be disturbed while they’re working – they just don’t. You get in a zone, you’re super productive, and you don’t want to stop. You’re on a roll!
Now imagine magnifying that feeling by ten, and that’s how sensitive people are. They don’t want to be disturbed, so just leave them be. No matter how funny the joke is, they don’t want to hear it while they’re concentrated.
#5. Pressure will never work. I don’t care how many times you say please or how many times you try; you will not get there. So stop pressuring your sensitive friends.
Whether you’re pressuring them to talk or do something, it doesn’t matter. It’s not happening, and I highly recommend you give up while you’re ahead. Otherwise, it will backfire into a gnarly fight.
#4. Help them be comfortable, too. Have you ever been to a party where you don’t know someone? When someone finally comes to talk to you, it’s such a relief.
That’s how sensitive people feel. When you make them feel comfortable, they appreciate it more than you know. They’ll love you for it, and want to spend more time with you, too. So help make your friends comfortable!
#3. Stay clean. For the love of all things good and holy, please stay clean. This is a big part of being a sensitive person.
In fact, a lot of sensitive people have O.C.D. Whether they’re sensitive because of their O.C.D or their O.C.D makes them sensitive, it doesn’t matter. Stay clean, and they’ll love you for it.
#2. Encourage, promote and help them be creative! Sensitive people tend to have a lot of pent up emotions and energy – and what better way to release it than in some form of art? It helps channel all that energy into something positive.
Again, don’t force them to be creative. Don’t sign them up for an art class without their permission, or do something else that’s way too much. Let them decide what sounds fun to them, and try it with them!
#1. Finally, be real with them. You should be real with people in general, but if there’s one kind of person to definitely be real with, it’s sensitive people. It will pay off in the long run. They’re overthinkers, and being honest and truthful will help you progress in your relationship. Plus, it’s great for everyone to have a friend they’re always honest with. Sensitive people can make amazing friends, so why not learn how to befriend them?
