    I hate that I get attached to people

    so easily! I made friends with a guy here on EP and we got on amazingly. We flirted often and talked about any and everything. He lives in the US and I live in the UK. Once he found out that I was starting to date someone where I live, he cut me off and left EP. I now miss him a...

    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.

    Sometimes I feel like I feel too much emotion,

    and I can't handle it. I've recently found a really good group of people who are proving to me that not every person in the world is gonna fail me. But I still feel these overwhelming waves of emotions and I don't know what to do with them. Is there such a thing as being too...

    I am the person that you can come pour your

    heart out to at 3 o'clock in the morning and I'd be more than happy to help! But, I am very sensitive. I catch others feelings of happiness, depression, anger, loneliness, etc. very easily. I have to learn to control the feelings that aren't mine!

    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

    When my husband & I goes out to eat,

    we barely talk to each other. I mean, I get that he's the silent type, but i am his wife. Even in the car, I'd rather turn on the radio than dealing with his silence. Everytime i ask him why he is so silent. He would always tell me that he got lots on his mind. Every. Damn. Time...

    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 believe that when you suppress an emotion it

    gets locked in your body until it's healed. And when you are finally able to come to terms with the situation, opening up to somebody for example telling your secret. you will feel the unfelt emotions and hurt again giving you a second chance to feel your way through the pain...
