I Am a Sensitive Person

It pains me to see people in pain and I just can't help feeling for them when they go through hard times.
I am a giver and like to help others though have a hard time with people judging me and miss interpret the gift as a bribe (for what, I don't know), thinking I have a "bad" motive for giving. The absolutely breaks my heart. I give for two reasons: because I want to help others and because giving and doing for others gives me such a joy I would never know without it.

I struggle with this as well. I came to a point where I don't understand and can't make others understand that I do want to help. It's not personal though we may think it is at times. We really don't know what others are going through in their lives. The internet is not really the best for helping others or being helped. This is the best site I've found so far though where there are many who care enough but there's always going to be those who don't trust for whatever reasons.

I get A similar feeling as you do. Sometimes giving others time is a precious gift.

@Muldoon Thanks but it is just who and what I am. I heard Jed Clampet (The Beverly Hillbillies" say, "The greatest joy of living is the joy that comes from giving." Many times I have tears of joy in my eyes when I help others.
Our church us VERY small and our pastor emeritus stepped down to be a part of a Bible College staff in the Bahamas. There isn't one on any of the islands so had and several of his cohorts go about 4 X a year to hold all day classes for one to two weeks at a time.
His financial need touched my heart so that I am privileged to be a part of that opportunity. He is my best friend and he is like the older brother I never had! 😄😂

I am the same way. And it's also why I don't talk about myself much even though I'm very comfortable with who I am
Or let put it this way to the one who mis-judges you: "Okay, if you think I have a selfish motive, I am. I derive happiness from helping others. And such selfishness is common for both you and me. Your selfish motive is to keep everything to yourself, and not to give and share; and mine is to hand everything over to others, and not to leave things for myself. Is it well understood then?" I hope those self-appointed critics would be happy.
People don't understand or don't want to believe that there are people like yourself. Most people who give want something in return but you've already gotten your reward the moment you gave. You're unique. Kudos to you sir.
