I know someone who is oversensitive on every situation that is happening around. And it really makes me feel irritated because she always has something to say negative. Like now, she heard that one of our common friend invited me to be a godmother of her daughter and this sensitive person never knew anything... in short, she was not invited...here she is... saying something negative again. How about you? How do you feel on people like this?

Hello vangie, My ex was like this, no matter what i try to tell her to convince her, she finds something she can stick to. I loved her so much, but she always made me worry, despite that i always tried hard to let her feel comfortable if something happens. This negativity can be a big influence on others, it had on me. Now that we broke up, i mean she broke up with me. I don't have to worry about all that excuses and things she somehow finds that intercepts my views. I feel pity for her, how can always think everything happens for the bad ? I wished she believed in God, that would have made her comfortable i guess. But she can't because she thinks she isn't a good person and that it's a waste trying to speak to God, when that is the actual thing she needs to do. I think this is much beyond the sensitive people, too much sensitive people will always doubt everything for the bad. They find their own excuses, i don't know if anyone can ever make them feel reassured or safe.

Somehow, i guess with the case of your ex, there really is something that made her feel insecure on something that's why she always have negative feelings. So sad that they can't find security in God's hand. :(

As much as possible, i stay away from people like that. When they say something negative, i would just be silent and just don't mind her, because i might say something that can make us exchange heated words.

I can be sensitive to others needs but I can not be around negative people. I have learned in life that negativity from other way me down way too much that it tends to make me feel bad about myself. So I really try to distance from people like this. If it is family, I can be amicable I just don't try hard to be around them too much.

These people take life a bit too seriously to say the least. They tend to get offended and freak out over everything. I do really try to exercise a great deal of patience. However, it is really like you have to deal with these people while wearing kid's gloves. You have to walk around them, tip toeing carefully and not say anything that might upset it. That can wear on the patience of people. I have had to work with people like this and they cannot really take the slightest bit of advice, without thinking of it as a personal slight against them. To me, they are a never ending frustrating. That is why I really do try and avoid them when I can. It is just going to save me a lot of headaches and is going to save me a great deal of frustration. So these people who are overly sensitive are rather frustrating and it can wear on the nerves.

I guess i had put so much patience on her but I would rather be routed on different places to work than to be with her everyday because even the smallest thing, it would be a big deal for her. argh! thanks :-)

i stay away from such people. as much as i can, as much as possible, i don't want to have anything to do with them because they can only mean trouble , plus they are really irritating too. i don't think i could every feel anything positive for such negative people. i think they should just learn to shut up and hide their true feelings because no one really wants to listen to whatever it is that they have to say. LoL.

They ca be irritating, I only know one person who is like this and thankfully we are not friends, I just keep away from people like this because they make you stressed out and I really am not good at keeping my opinions to myself, I can't do what my mother always advise me "WHEN YOU'VE GOT NOTHING GOOD TO SAY, DON'T SAY ANYTHING"...

Yeah, I think that's the best thing to do...to keep away from this kind of people. To hear nothing but trash can really ruin a day. Thanks for your opinion. :-)

I think people like this should not be avoided but instead be accepted and made them understand the things that you find improper or wrong with them. They turned negative ones because it has been done to them also. And they will think that life works this way. For you Ms. Vangie, try to spend some time talking peacefully to your friend. If you'll go,who will be the remaining friend of that person?

I already rebuked her on her attitude but it seems that is already her character to be so negative and there are times also that when she found out that what she thought was wrong, she'll find a way to escape. :)

We can't predict what people attitude or their behavior just be more observant to what they show to us. Sometimes that people just need more attention.

On the case of others, yes, we must justify their actions or attitudes but when consistently, they are like that, there really is something wrong with their character. thank you :-)

I knew some people with the same personality and I usually ignore or avoid them because many times, they really aren't helping and making the situation more complicated. And they could really put you in a really bad mood if you're already not feeling well. I guess those people have inferiority complex. Giving negative comments about something or someone makes them happy because they are thinking that there are other people in this world who are less inferior than them.

In that situation(you are invited as a Godmother and she is not) I can say that it is a natural reaction to feel envious or irritated because as you've said, that person who invited you is your common friend. It is okay if your common friend doesn't want her to be one of the God mothers also, but at least she should have been invited to that occasion as well. But on the part that your friend is saying negative things, I don't agree with that, she can just keep it to herself or better yet ask your common friend if she did something wrong to deserve that treatment.

I guess she should be avoided... She is what they call a toxic person and you would not want to be associated with a toxic person otherwise you too will become toxic and people will avoid you!
