#HighlySensitivePeople: What are questions that you shouldn’t ask yourself? (Part1)

There are no strict rules about what questions highly sensitive people and introverts shouldn’t ask themselves, it can be helpful to avoid negative or self-critical thinking patterns. Here are a few examples of questions that may not be helpful:

  1. Why am I so weak or sensitive? This question reinforces negative beliefs about sensitivity and can be self-critical. Instead, try asking yourself questions that focus on your strengths and positive qualities.
  2. Why can’t I handle this like everyone else? This question may lead to comparison and self-doubt. Instead, focus on what works best for you and what you need to feel comfortable and supported.
  3. Why do I always get so emotional? This question may reinforce negative stereotypes about sensitivity and can be self-critical. Instead, try reframing your emotions as valuable signals that provide insight into your inner experiences and needs.
  4. Why can’t I just toughen up? This question may reinforce the belief that sensitivity is a weakness or flaw. Instead, focus on developing skills and strategies to manage your sensitivity effectively and thrive in your unique way.
  5. Why do people always hurt me? This question may reinforce a victim mentality and can be disempowering. Instead, focus on taking ownership of your experiences and developing healthy relationships and boundaries that support your well-being.
