How many of us have been told, "you're too sensitive?" You stand up for yourself, you speak up, defend yourself and call them out on the abuse. Their reply ? "you're too sensitive" "overreacting" "can't you take a joke?" Those comments are just the continuation of the abuse. Narcissists believe they are entitled to abuse and mistreat you. You are not too sensitive. You are likely much more healthy and aware than the abuser.
