I Am a Sensitive Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 43,582 People

    The worst thing is when people tell me I'm just

    being a drama queen. No, I'm allowed to get upset over things that annoy me without being labeled. There's a certain point where it's not a joke anymore. 😓

    I feel like I'm being ignored by my boyfriend

    and as of right now I never want to speak to him again. I know I'm being irrational but the the more I think about it the more angry I get. I rather be single for the rest if my life than deal with petty **** like this..

    I'm pretty empathetic.

    Especially when other people are stressed. I feel it too and tend to internalize it and it affects me physically, usually making me sick. I call it my stress bug.

    All it takes is just one word.

    I respect people I know or I don't know. I talk with manners and formality. But God help I can't stand those high nose J-off's who think their the center of everything. I mean, if you don't like anything about me then shut your mouth and move on. I always found that a...

    and do upset me and I'm beginning to at least try and shield myself from some of life's insensitive souls. Its not easy though and even when I try not to let anyone see the hurt in my eyes or in my voice I often fail completely. I don't watch TV any longer because I couldn't...

    My sensitivity is probably my worst

    and best quality. It's a good thing about me in that I feel compassion for others and am empathetic to what they go through, but it's also a negative because I cannot mask my emotions and internalize everything. I also am not able to stand up for myself most of the time.

    It's weird. I come from a family

    who can dish it as well as they can take it, but me? One wrong word or action is sometimes all it takes to make me crumble. I hate that. Why am I the one person in my family who's like this. Yeesh! >:(

    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'm a very sensitive person.

    I don't tell many people this but I'm a cryer. I cry when I'm angry, frustrated or sad. It just happens. I'm also a very empathic person. I worry about others and their pain upsets me as much as my own.

    I am a sensitive person.

    I have the gift of empathy, which is a big part of my personality. My therapist doesn't call it being "sensitive", she calls it having a higher level of emotional intelligence. I think there's some truth there. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, I tend to love very...

    for me, the good and the bad things... sometimes i truly hate it, i dont have a medium term, awful, I dont know how to change, I dont know if I should change, all I know is that living everything so deeply makes me think that I am a crazy person and that I do not fit anywhere

    Actually I enjoy putting losers in their place.

    I can deal with a lot of bullshit and rude remarks without giving a damn. However, when it (unexpectedly) comes from a person I love and care about, I find myself helplessly fragile.
