Why I am careful about who I talk to

Posted by: alisrowe, October 27, 2018

One way that I have learned to be less affected by my high emotional sensitivity and manage mood swings is to have a calmer, more steady life. Another way that I have learned to better cope with my emotional sensitivity and reduce mood swings is to take caution about who I talk to about myself and my life. Talking to the ‘wrong’ person can make me feel worse.

I have learned that it is better for me not to say much about myself until I have gained a ‘feeling’ for those around me and their ability to empathise. The problem with talking to people who are not empathetic is the way they react to the things I say. Their reactions can be extremely hurtful and cause me to have a lingering low mood.
