    I am a really sensitive person.

    like, I've always been able to be moved to tears very easily. I cry about stupid things, that aren't even worth crying over. I always feel something is wrong w/ me. I used to cut a few months ago, until my mom found out. I've stopped but there are times when I feel like I need...

    My eyes swell with tears

    if an adult gets onto me. If someone says something rude to me it ruins my day. I let people get to me more than I should. I cry at the stupidest things. My face turns red. I hate being sensitive.

    Can anybody relate? I'm one of those kinds of

    people that hides my emotions from everyone, for fear of being judged, to show vulnerability and generally not wanting to bother people with my feelings. It's gotten to the point were i can be completely fine, but certain triggers lead me to abandon my friend group for a few...

    A guy friend infests his Instagram with

    follwing (essentially) ***********. Correction: Half naked Aussies. It affects our time in class lectures (where I can actually see it). He's distracted. I once liked him too. A little part of you loses respect. And the friendship is not the same. Ugh.

    I wish I wasn't so sensitive.

    I admit that I tend to get easily hurt or offended by people and wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm also a very emotional person. On the outside, I'm physically strong, but in the inside, I'm very tender and fragile. So, please be gentle and handle me with care. :)

    I am grateful for my sensitivity,

    it may mean I cry in Disney movies and empathise frequently, it also means I can feel more deeply, and that's a big part of how I make sense of the world

    As A Reincarnationist, I Believe That High Sensitivity Is Needed For Spiritual Growth

    I'm a true HSP.  It's hard to live in a world that is generally color-blind (black and white) but to instead experience brilliant shades of color and texture and depth everywhere.  Of course I have been told the same things, "You think too much"; "You always make a...

    I am tired of this. People say things,

    and I act like it doesn't bother me. But it does. A lot. Every night, inside I am wondering why people do these things. Being compassionate and sensitive sucks.

    You know that thing called self-compassion.

    Well, I seem to have been born without it. I am my own bully. I berate myself for everything I do because that is how I grew up. If i didn't do something right, my mother blamed everything on me. I was never to have an excuse. I'm such a sensitive shy person, yet I am the...

    I REPEAT! Being a sensitive person IS DIFFRENT

    from being a cry baby. Sensitive mean you are aware of your surrounding. Cry baby means youre cry after every litle things! Grow up sensitive! Not grow up to cry on every litle thing. Everyone who hate me, just tell me. Im sorry

    I have problems with talking to people

    because I am worried that the other person will make fun of me or get angry with me. I get hurt easily. If any one is rude to me, then it hurts me. I do not like to offend people. I am also shy about expressing myself, even about very simple subjects.
