I Am a Sensitive Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 61,263 People

    There has been a long time in my life,

    almost for the whole of it in fact, until reasonably recently, when I've pretty-much denied my emotions, by which I mean I've pretty-much ignored them. Now that I'm learning to acknowledge more how I'm *feeling* I am more aware of the fact that I actually am quite sensitive.

    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...

    All women are sensitive,

    it's a conditioned female trait, but I am hyper sensitive compared to some women. I think very deeply about everything said to me, everything done to me. Obviously, there will be detractors who will deride my experience, and they will show a lack of simple civility in doing so...

    that will always be there. I am that one friend that gives the best motivational speeches like there is no tomorrow. But it's come to my attention that I am letting days pass by me. I am that friend that gets sidelined; but I am also that one friend that pushes away my own goals...

    and the guy you hate flirting in front of you, the whole class is applauding and teasing them, and all of them knew that you have a crush on her.

    The woman who birthed me has Borderline

    Personality disorder. The abuse I suffered as a child made me feel unsafe and unwanted. Like it was all my fault she was angry all the time. These circumstances color everything I do as an adult, whether I am aware or not. It has made me hypersensitive and forever 'sorry!', even...

    People often take advantage of that.

    They think it's okay to make her believe that she's offended because shes too sensitive instead of admitting I did something wrong.

    I wish I weren't so sensitive.

    I wish I could just not care. I've been put down and told I was too sensitive so many times. It makes me feel like I am not normal or there is something really wrong with me. I feel like I can never say how I feel about anything in fear of being called sensitive. All I want is...

    Oh boy! Am I a sensitive person?

    The answer is yes. I am REALLY sensitive. My brother used to play tricks on me and he would flick me in the nose and I'd cry, haha. Whenever I cried he would say "Don't act like a little *****.". I love my brother and all, but the last time he did that was when I was 7, because...

    Every time someone says something cruel

    or derogatory to me or someone else and I comment on it, they'll tell me I'm overreacting and that they're just joking. It's gotten to the point where they openly joke about it in front of me.

    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 tend to feel rejected and abandoned by some of the many "friends" that never called back, never wrote me to check how I was doing. I don't know what to do because I can't please everyone at the same time, and it tears me down inside to realize people only want me as long as...

    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'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.
