“Your problem is that you are too sensitive.  You should not be so sensitive.”

That is a common criticism of me from my family.  They use it to dismiss  issues I raise.  It is okay for me to bring up safe surface feelings about sports, entertainment, and gossip.  Any feelings below this surface on deeper topics are verboten.

Let’s say that their criticism is valid.  Let’s say that I am too sensitive.  How do I reduce my sensitivity?  This is like telling me that I am too tall.  How do I reduce my height?  Cut my head off?   (I suppose I could cut my head off, but then I would worry about not meeting the height requirements for some rides at an amusement park.)

My family is telling me not to feel.  I understand why given their drug and alcohol use.
