Two Sides of Sensitive


A few days ago I had such a special experience that it has had me thinking ever since.  A great word that could used to describe me is "sensitive."  It applies in a few different meanings.

Hace unos días tuve una experiencia tan especial que ha tenido yo pensaba desde entonces. Una gran palabra que podría utilizar para describirme es «sensible». Se aplica en algunos significados diferentes.


I get hurt pretty easily; the wrong words, words the wrong way, mysterious silences or absences.  All of these cause my self esteem issues to flair up.  And it is almost never that anyone but me sees these hurts as I have learned from and early age to keep them to myself, to stay silent.  I am working to overcome that, but it is very difficult.

Me hieren muy fácilmente; las palabras equivocadas, palabras al revés, misteriosos silencios o ausencias. Todos estos causan mis problemas de autoestima a flair para arriba. Y casi nunca es que cualquiera pero mí ve estas heridas como he aprendido desde edad temprana para mantenerlos a mí mismo, para permanecer en silencio y. Estoy trabajando para superar eso, pero es muy difícil.


The other side of being sensitive, the brighter one, is that I am quite empathetic when it comes to the feelings of others.  And I long for and thrive in opportunities to share happiness or help ease the pain of others.  To have chances like this brings me such joy and such a thing took place on Tuesday.

Al otro lado de ser sensible, el más brillante, es que yo soy muy empática cuando se trata de los sentimientos de los demás. Anhelan y prosperar en oportunidades para compartir la felicidad o ayudar a aliviar el dolor de los demás. Para tener oportunidades como ésta me trae tanta alegría y tal cosa llevó a cabo el martes.


One of the bloggers had posted a very sad, touching little essay about someone having hurt her feelings by accusing her of not caring about her blog followers.  The reason this anonymous individual gave was because the blogger never responded to comments posted to her blog.  

Uno de los bloggers había publicado un ensayo pequeño muy triste y conmovedor sobre alguien que herir sus sentimientos por acusándola de no preocuparse por sus seguidores del blog. Este individuo anónimo dio la razón fue porque el bloguero nunca respondió a los comentarios escritos en su blog.



Anyone who visits her blog normally knows she is a very busy college student who has a real heart and flair for fashion she likes to share in her free time, which is minimal.  I have commented a few times (partly because she is a fan of tights and partly due to her sweet, open style of writing which is charming.)  There was never any response and I was fine with that.  A comment from me to her or any of you is meant to encourage, to brighten, to express my admiration for you.  I feel so grateful to you for your photos, your art, your writing, your being you and I just want to share it.  And I will never once expect anything in return for that sharing.

Cualquier persona que visita su blog normalmente sabe que ella es un estudiante universitario muy ocupado que tiene un corazón verdadero y estilo de moda que le gusta compartir su tiempo libre, que es mínima. He comentado varias veces (en parte porque es fanática de las mallas y en parte debido a su estilo de escritura que es encantadora dulce, abierto). Nunca ha habido ninguna respuesta y estaba bien con eso. Un comentario de mí a ella o a alguno de ustedes está destinado para alentar, para alegrar, para expresar mi admiración por ti. Me siento muy agradecida por tus fotos, tu arte, tu forma de escribir, tu eres tú y quiero compartirlo. Y nunca espero nada a cambio de que compartir.


So, I shared the above with her in a smaller version in hopes it would, even if just a tiny bit, help her.  And such a wonderful surprise I had the next day as she had tweeted me a message that totally touched my heart.  To know that I was able to encourage her means the world to me.  I always trust that my comments do that for people, but to have it confirmed was like a sunbeam warming me on a cold morning.

Así, compartía la anterior con ella en una versión más pequeña con la esperanza de que sí, incluso si sólo un poquito, ayudarla. Y una maravillosa sorpresa tuve al día siguiente como ella me había twitteó un mensaje totalmente tocó mi corazón. Saber que yo era capaz de alentar su significa mucho para mí. Yo siempre confío en que mis comentarios hacer por la gente, pero para que lo confirmó como un rayo de sol que me calienta en una mañana fría.


As much as it makes me nervous to reach out and be myself even in such a safe place as this, an experience like that and the comments you wonderful people share with me really help keep me brave.  So thank you for that SO much.  Hope you enjoyed the early Christmas pictures :)  Long, sweet hugs for each of you and lots of love!

Tanto como me pone nervioso al llegar y ser yo mismo incluso en un lugar tan seguro como éste, una experiencia así y los comentarios de que gente maravillosa comparte conmigo realmente ayudar a mantenerme valiente. Gracias por tanto. Espero que hayan disfrutado las fotos Navidad tempranas :) Durante mucho tiempo, dulce abrazo para ti y mucho amor!

I think it is really sweet of you to write the encouraging comment to that blogger. DO I know her by any chance? I personally don't think a blogger is obliged to reply to anyone though a reply always makes followers and readers feel welcome. Was that anonymous comment mean or that person who comment just miffed or hurt that replies are well not replied?

Why am I not surprised that people comment on this post merely looking at te pictures without reading? It is this kind of people who put me off. Oops... Bitchy self emerges. Anyway, it would

I don't think the blogger is obliged to answer everybody (especially when they leave comments such as "hey come visit my blog, my facebook, my everything", but when there are specifics questions it's nice to have answers or any intervention to know that she's at least reading the comments. That's how I feel. Some people leave you random comments and with some others you can bound. To me it is the goal of blogging, it's all the beauty of it.

I am not sure if the comment was an anon or a real person. She is a pretty big deal in the fashion blogging world and has been featured on but never visited here. I think it was a case of hurt feelings.

ooh, bad you :) I understand your frustration but I so enjoy having people visit and comment whatever they want to take away from it I think is wonderful. But yep, I get it for sure :)

I just finished a blog discussing my main goal here and it certainly requires me to interact through comments but I also do not get 100 of them like a certain French beauty who shall remain nameless :) Maybe you could hire an assistant to answer them. Really though, I love getting responses to my comments, lets me know it is OK to write them more often on that blog, but I do not think of it as required at all. Merci beaucoup for the visit, sweetie xx

LOL dunno who you're talking about. xD
All I'm saying is that it is stull nice to have an answer sometimes, not all the time but it seems pretty natural to me that the blogger answers from time to time to the readers... Cause what's a blog without readers ?

Oh I agree. When I know a blogger responds to my comments (or if they visit here) I will check out everything they post. If not. I just look when it seems interesting. Like if I see tights ;)

:) If it is not someone I am interacting with regularly (like they leave comments here or answer my comments there or on IG) and I see jeans, or cords, or maxi skirts, or dungarees I mostly just keep on going to the next one unless something in the title or description catches my eye. So, in your case, whenever I see you post, whatever it is, you can count on me to share something with you, tights or not :)P

I think I typed the above when I was sleepy. My comment didn't make grammatical and syntax sense and gosh... my sentence was half complete and I didn't know what I was going to type.

It would be so lovely to hear from you. I promise to respond either here or on your blog.
