    It doesnt take much to hurt me

    Being this kind of person I cry over anything

    and everything. I can't help it, it's a natural instinct for me to do. I cry over my ex when I can't have him back in my life b/c I can't simply do anything about that & it sucks.

    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 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.

    Don't call me a cry baby it's not the same.

    PTSD and anxiety plays a huge roll. No one eggs that I don't want to just embarrass myself and cry. It just happens. I can't stop it

    I get upset over little things

    and it makes me cry for a long period of time- when I try to take a deep breath, the crying stops temporarily and then comes back when I think about what made me cry in the first place. This can be embarrassing so I was wondering if others had advice? Is there any benefit to...

    I am way too sensitive.

    I cry because of the simplest things, such as music,documentaries, and other things going that are also not personal to me.

    so easily. Someone said something to me today, and it hurt like a slap to the face. I feel myself spiraling downwards once more and I'm crying. I wish I wasn't this way where you can hurt me so badly with a few words. I hate it. I'm too easy to hurt and it makes me want to cry...

    Me when I don't got this: I got this I am

    always rushing: making friends, improving my singing, trying to control my temper better... I also don't talk about what I like anymore because I'm afraid of the reactions, especially from my family. I really don't know why, but I'm trying to change this. I'm rushing that, too.

    I'm Hypersensitive

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Sometimes people can hurt me badly with things they do or say. I am always sensitive to others and try to be helpful and supportive of them. I can very quickly tell if somebody is upset or has something on their mind and am a good listener. I mayn't be able to help them but...

    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.

    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. :)
