    I cry easily to touching stories.

    I accept negative criticism but deep inside I am crying so loud. I hate being labelled and misjudge that I'd rather be alone than be with a crowd. I sometimes think that even my own friends doesn't get my true emotion or who I really am.

    so hard. I'm sick of the uncontrollable feelings I have.

    I have always been very sensitive.

    Some people ask me why are you so sensitive? I am like well because I just am. I have a big heart and try my hardest to be nice to everyone. So why do some people have to be so hurtful and mean? I cant understand that?

    7 years ago, the only thing

    that I always wanted is to be free and enjoy the physical intimacy with women, I had my share but I did the right thing when one of them got pregnant, she became my wife. The relationship between myself and my wife isn't that great as I lost the physical attraction to her...

    Once upon a time I used to have low self esteem

    and low self confidence. It's not that I'm now high on these things but I went through a process in my mid to late twenties that transformed and liberated me of a curse that I used to believe I'd never escape. I am also a sensitive person, which used to be hypersensitivity. Last...

    Yes, I'm very sensitive.

    And I annoy people because of this. I tend to take things as a personal attack, even if it is not meant as one. I was bullied throughout middle school and part of high school, so I tend to assume people are trying to insult me. I feel ignored and left out very easily, which I...

    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.

    I'm 69 years old and have an emotional side I

    don't mind sharing. Sometimes I think some see sensitivity as a weakness, but I feel its an emotional release to things being kept inside.

    I don't know how to express what's in my head,

    because only I understand myself. I cry over everything because after all I've been through I still believe in any and everything and that's the worse part. Crying relieves my pain.

    no lie. My feelings get easily hurt and I don't understand how some people can be so mean and rude. Once, I was hanging out with some friends and someone mentioned how chubby I looked in my dress. I cried. I know, they only said that I was chubby but it still hurt my feelings...

    Hello, today is my 18th birthday.

    I have "friends", but I wouldn't call them close since none of them actually remembered. I went to school as usual and pretended it wasn't happening and for a while I actually forgot it was. My orchestra teacher had asked me a few weeks ago if I could go to a gig, but I said I...

    This is such a curse

    when my mom is around. Earlier today she made me drive to some fast food place to get the food. She ordered it ahead of time so I had to go to a certain one. I accidentally drove right past it and went to another one way ahead. I called my mom since they didn't have the order...

    All it took was a little apathy to make me feel

    badly about myself. I'm disappointed that I've allowed it to get to me. It's not as though I'm not used to getting it from people, so why should this be any different? I'm confused by the way I feel, and I've spent a great deal of time trying to analyze it this evening.

    Money, and a big house,

    and nice clothes and a nice car, and an "education" guarantees nothing. Don't ever think a person has it all together becAuse they're "pretty" or rich or wear nice things. Cause you never know what they're battling inside.

    Sensitive people are the most genuine

    Rejection doesn't mean you aren't good enough;

    it means the other person failed to notice what you have to offer.
