100% of people who tell you you’re too sensitive are saying it because they don’t want to be held responsible for your reaction when they mistreat you

"

My notebook has remained blank for months
thanks to the light you shower
around me. I have no use
for my pen, which lies
languorously without grief.

Nothing is better than to live
a storyless life that needs
no writing for meaning—
when I am gone, let others say
they lost a happy man,
though no one can tell how happy I was.

"
by Ha Jin, “Missed Time,”  Poetry (July 2000).

" When you’re traveling, you are what you are, right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road. "
" We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there. "
