I have been here for the best part of a year yet I'm still rated as a ' New' member. I mostly read and don't post a lot, so if that status is based on the number of posts it is misleading. I feel there should be a status between New and Junior unless I have missed something. Thanks 😊

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
