Are you fragile? If so, what measures do you take do protect yourself?

Do you think some things you do might be subconscious?

I don’t consider myself as fragile ,  but lately I do draw back from people to protect myself . It helps because when fragile I don’t feel I can fight for myself . Do you mean that with the question?

@carmen I'm not sure what your mean in regards to the question. I was reading something that asserted fragile people take a certain action as a defense. It was interesting!  So I was wondering what action people who consider themselves to be fragile, take to be safe? Assuming they take action they're aware of!

Also, assuming a person considers themselves, "fragile". I don't even know that anyone does. But the whole idea was curious enough for me to post this. Smile

I got the Capricorn pre-emptive rejection thing. It was sub-conscious when I was younger.

@jana So you're sensitive to rejection, specifically?

This was another thing I wondered.  Are "fragile" and "sensitive" interchangeable. I don't think they are but I understand words mean different things to different people... which is unfortunate but another topic, I suppose.

In terms of a person, by my definition, a fragile person might be shattered where a sensitive person, simply feels.

@elsa

that's a good point. By that definition, I would say no I'm not fragile. Rejection wouldn't shatter me.

@jana Yeah, that's what I would guess of you. Avoid it if possible but if it happens, take your knocks.

Capricorn!

My mom (Cap moon) has this. Even as her offspring, I have to repeat my interest in her 10x before she will consider I'm not just "doing it to be nice."

You are right, @Elsa. I am sensitive, but the very opposite of fragile. I am indestructible, physically and emotionally. I think fragile people (my sister is one) avoid situations that have a potential to hurt them, no matter how pleasing.

I was always told that I was growing up. My sister still says that about me. I think I cried a lot growing up.

But after living some life I’ve discovered that I’m an incredibly tough person- I just have a lot of feelings (hsp) and a sensitive system.

I think actually embracing that emotional fragility has helped as well as the willingness to embrace change. Kind of how flexible buildings are less prone to get destroyed in an earthquake.

I am the least fragile person I know.
