Thank you so much for writing this. If there was one thing I needed today was this: a reminder not to let other people's actions affect me.
I'm a hypersensitive person. The world feels so angry and overwhelming that I struggle with keeping it together.
Some days I feel like a ballon, and every microaggression is like someone blowing me. I feel like I'm about to explode.
I know I shouldn't take strangers rude behaviors personally, but it's hard. I've let them ruin my day many times.
I have my garbage too, the difference is that I try my hardest not to dump it on others.
Like you say, I should not let anyone dump their trash on me and I'll be happier.
