A Soul Constantly Bruised

Sensitive people are the most genuine and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they will end the friendship. They live with guilt and constant pain over unresolved situations and misunderstandings. They are tortured souls that are not able to live with hatred or being hated. This type of person needs the most love anyone can give them because their soul has been constantly bruised by others. However, despite the tragedy of what they have to go through in life, they remain the most compassionate people worth knowing and the ones that often become activists for the broken-hearted, forgotten and the misunderstood. They are angels with broken wings that only fly when loved. — Shannon Adler

    Truer words have never been said! This is me up one side and down the other….. And it came at the perfect time; today is my birthday and I have been been betrayed!

  2. This is very true especially for people like me and also so true for my son jason

  3. This is so beautiful and so true 🙂

  4. Finally someone who understands what it’s like to be sensitive and you worded it beautifully.

  5. This is so very true…betrayed many times and I am still very compassionate….beautifully worded

  6. Oh my….This is so me!!! I’m glad other’s understand too.

  7. I feel like you just opened my soul and read the lining! I have been told I am sensitive but I never realized how sensitive until I read this! Thanks for understanding and especially accepting the sensitive ones.

  8. I think I am a sensitive compassionate person, but when people betray and hurt me I just forgive them and continue the relationship with extra caution, until they choose to leave my life, and then I mourn the loss of the once beautiful relationship we had. But I would never choose to turn my back on someone I love and care about, no matter how much they have hurt me or how badly they have betrayed me. We all make mistakes and sometimes a person doesn’t even know they have made a mistake that so deeply wounds another that it really is wounding them, too. When we hurt another we are hurting ourselves but not everyone knows that. They still need to be forgiven and loved, though. It would kill me if someone I hurt accidentally wouldn’t forgive me, so I just won’t do that to others. Maybe that’s not truly being sensitive? I don’t know. I guess that part of this post just sat kinda wrong with me. Never turn your back on someone. Let them go, yes. But don’t walk away. lol I’m probably just not really a sensitive compassionate person like I think I am! 🙂

  9. This quote is wrong #Enough to say that it is true!? #FluidBalanceGuy

  10. This is truly just the way we are. Beautiful, very accurate.

  11. sometimes, people get hurt so badly in life that they need to loose the senstivity and get a stone heart to live happily

  12. This is totally spot on! Fits so many people!

  13. Hi

  14. I’ve seen the selfish hapoy. In a selfish world , the selfish succeed.
