Let’s hear it for highly sensitive people.

These individuals typically feel more deeply, worry over making decisions and are averse to criticism. They’re also notorious for crying, whether they’re happy, sad, angry or excited.

Experts say the highly sensitive trait affects about 20 percent of the population. And just like any other personality trait, “highly sensitive” is merely a label that further informs how a person interacts with the world. And there’s nothing wrong with it ― in fact, experts say extra sensitivity brings a lot of great qualities to the table, such as better leadership and more empathy.

We rounded up some funny tweets that ― perhaps hyperbolically ― capture the everyday plight of what it’s like to be a super sensitive person. Take a look:
