I am an INFJ and I totally fit that personality type. I just feel as if I have such an issue with being highly sensitive and sometimes I really dislike feeling this way. Does anyone else strugle with this? 

My best :-)

I definitely struggle from this. It is hard for me to relate to everyone around and I am highly sensitive. For years I wanted to chnage this and it didn't help I had gone through certain circumstances that made things worse...I now feel that I am more comfortable with who I am, although I am still senstive but I get over things a lot quicker...its good to know they're others around...and quite honestly I would rather be sensitive than the opposite..hope this helped...wish you all the best!!

Hi! 

   I can totally relate to this but I've accepted it. It's part of who we are as an INFJ and you shouldn't see it as a struggle or even dislike it. Embrace it so you can be happy with who you are. Being highly sensitive can be overwhelming but if it seems too much, try meditation/deep-breathing. Never neglect your emotions!

I can relate to that! I hate the fact that I can always feel what somebody is feeling. This makes me shut down or zone out a lot. I am getting better at explaining this though. Because of that people close to me understand me better.

I have this same attribute! I am highly sensitive, which has been proven to be good and not-so-good. Good, because I find it easy to relate to others and let them know that they matter. Not-so-good, because I can be offended easily and I tend to attach to people quickly, which makes all types of endings hard for me. However, I'm learning to embrace who I am and love myself for it. :) Like PJS said earlier, I'd much rather be more sensitive than less sensitive. Hope this helps!
