9. They Will Know How You Feel, Even Before You Do
Sensitive people are highly in tune with their own emotions, and it makes them experts at reading emotions in others. Even if you’re just slightly disgruntled at the idiot driver in front of you on the drive to work, the sensitive person could be able to sense it off you and will do their utmost to make you feel better.

One of the great downfalls of a sensitive person is the fact that there is almost always a drama, but this isn’t always a bad thing. Life is never boring with the sensitive person and you will never live the same day twice.
So it’s time to stop labelling the sensitive person as a negative. They are probably one of the best friends you could ever have, and if you just embrace them for exactly who they are they will definitely reciprocate.
