Small things make big room in your heart

You know what’s going on around you!
You are well aware of what’s happening around you and what actions you need to take that work in your favor. You are confident from within and you know your way, regardless of what people say and where they guide you.
You can actually feel the pain of others
Greater empathy is your quality, you can feel what others feel and you can understand what the needs of others are. Also, when you find someone in need, at times, you can go above and beyond to help others, even if you need to compromise with yourself.
You are an owner of deep and alive feelings
As mentioned earlier, you feel deep and you feel too much. It is the sign that your feelings are deep and alive, you notice smallest things and everything matters, and matters a lot to you and your deep feelings.
You are more likely to help others
You can go above and beyond to help needy as you can understand their pain and sufferings. You prefer helping in every possible way be it emotional or financial, you can take the burden on yourself to see a smile on the face of others.
You neglect bigger crowds
Do you find late night parties and pubs not your type places? If yes, then you are highly sensitive. Of course, so many people love to enjoy drinks, dance, and the crowd, and you prefer sitting comfortably at home watching your favorite movies and shows. Calm places are your choice and you prefer being in your comfort zone.
You take time to forget things!
When something wrong is done to you or happens around you, it stays in your mind for long, and for very long at times. Sensitive people are among those who forgive but never forget. This is where your sensitivity is defined again, feeling so much and feeling so deep.
You love “ME” time!
Quality “ME” time is what you prefer instead of being with a crowd in a party or even in social gatherings. Also, some sensitive people will find themselves smiling for no reason at all as there is a lot of things going on in their mind.
More breaks, work less
