being sensitive is good.
then you don't hurt others mood.

but when you are over sensitive,
you ruin your own mood.

hurting and wondering what was meant.
when all it meant was humour for others.

there's a saying "nobody can laugh at you
if you laugh first.

I agree, it is easy to be oversensitive sometimes, and you are usually worrying for nothing
