The world is filled with all types of people. You have the emotionally strong types and the financially reliable types. You have the overly-smart yet carless types and reserved yet utterly-sympathetic types. And then there are those who have a very strong personality yet are very sensitive as well. Such people are generous at heart, mindful towards others and have a great sense of philanthropy for everyone.

They will be there to pick you up when you fall down. Their words will not feel like empty promises or sugar-coated lies, but sincere declarations of their love and respect for the ones in need of it. These kinds of people are considered a ‘strong’ personality due to their resilient nature: place any kind of obstacle before them and they will not only face it but overcome it bravely. Give them a tough time and they will not give up. So basically, they are the type of personalities who do not break easy.

It does not matter how the world and society, in general, treats such strong personalities. Part of the reason these people are so is because they form this accurate and idealistic perception of justice and humility and then act on it. Not much you throw their way will make them go astray from their ideals… unless highly necessary. If they follow certain religious beliefs, they will do so till the end. If they develop some new perceptions about life, they will stick to them come what may.

Nothing more, nothing less. Being of a strong yet sensitive persona does not imply something negative. It just means that even the slightest things can tick these kinds of personalities off. However, having a resiliency to their character, they will find ways and strategies to overcome those weaknesses and find solid ground again.

Nothing and no one is perfect. The same faces that see the light of the day are meant to walk in the dark of the night. In the same pretext, even strong personalities have some cracks in their armor. It does not make them any less amazing though.

A person who exhibits a resilient personality also possesses some weak points in them, side by side. Alongside being of a sound mind and soul, they still have sensitivities in their personality which, if turned into greater vulnerabilities, can destroy them.

Do you think you have a strong personality? If so then keep on reading and find out some basic signs you might have which show that you have a strong yet sensitive personality.

The point is, no matter the situation you have, it can be too overwhelming for you. One way to put it is to describe it as the weight of the whole world crashing down on you. You feel it all, down to the marrow of your bones and the core of your heart. - Continue reading on the next page
