No matter what we say, other people’s reactions towards us isn’t always warranted. They can make us feel inferior, and over critical of ourselves and as a result we may be cold and aloof.
They’re insensitive. But how someone insensitive communicates with others is how they communicate with themselves. When we have something that we deal, we’re less likely to be sensitive to other people’s wants and needs.
Society as a whole has become more critical and insensitive. It’s not that we don’t care about others, we unconsciously care about ourselves more.
Although it’s not always easy to understand why people are insensitive, one reason could be that their own opinions and needs are so significant that they fail to see other people’s needs.
A lot of how we behave comes from our own sense of self. In the early years, if we grow to look out for other people, we will become sensitive to other people’s needs.
Even if we haven’t experienced what other people experience, we can still try to understand how that person feels. It’s all about empathy. Being insensitive comes from a lack of understanding and ignorance, but there is no excuse. We must come to understand.
Insensitive people will often show no feeling or concern for others. Anyone who is insensitive will always come across as inconsiderate, uncaring and unsympathetic.
Sadly, their conduct will be the catalyst for how they conduct themselves in their relationships, as well as in their lives.
