Dating a highly sensitive person – 20 things you can’t ignore Some people are under the misconception that “highly sensitive” means weak. These people face a barrage of stimuli daily that others simply do not.
If your love is doing the latter, explain that perhaps he or she is letting that mind go amuck, and to take a deep breathe and think about the situation later. Well, your lover is already pondering about fifty million reasons for you saying it.
However, when it comes to travel time, tell your over-thinker to sit and relax a bit before predicting issues with the itinerary. Your over-thinker may need extra recoup time if you two argue or words are exchanged.
It's draining to spend so much energy deciphering every single thing, so give your partner time to him or herself to relax.
And besides, you might even be the beneficiary of said "outlet." Enjoy it and support it, as long as it doesn't hurt the person or your relationship.
You can love an over-thinker until you're blue in the face but remember: this won't change him or her.
