    I honestly hate being

    so highly sensitive, because its so freaking easy for people to say "DONT worry about it" OR "DONT let it get to you" that alone makes it get to me more, and ****** me off when people say that, easier said than done. everything people say gets to me & eats at me. As im getting...

    When I develop or have a friendship/relationship

    or what have you, I give my all. If you can't do that for me or at least attempt to.. then don't enter my life. Don't waste my time, energy and efforts.. just don't.

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

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

    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'm Hypersensitive

    This means I can feel more than most people feel. I am sensitive to everything, noise, violence, lack of empathy, lack of love of people around us, in our society... I am sensitive in places where there are bad energy, negative atmosphere. I used to have a hard time with my...

    I used to embrace being a sensitive person.

    Because it used to mean that you were genuine and caring. But now it means you are vulnerable. And you get taken advantage of and made fun of. I wish I wasn't so sensitive.

    I was always way too sensitive.

    It is very easy to make me sad and make me cry... Whenever I see a touching video on the net... for example soldiers coming home from war... when I see those reactions I always think of how much I would love to see my dad come back to me. Yesterday I watched a video where fans...

    I don't think people know how sensitive I am.

    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...

    Traces of you linger,

    Three months ago, my teacher died.

    I told my crush about my loss, and he told me he couldn't help me. We then entered a war of silence. He recently invited me to his admission to bar. I was there, and to me, his life seemed perfect. I am still a nobody.

    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...

    Being sensitive is not the same

    as being weak. Your crying at everything and being submissive to people who use you don't necessarily make you a sensitive person. Sensitive people are beautiful. They see and feel everything deeply, and so they have an appreciation for things other people don't usually notice.
