    I can usually tolerate alot,

    however if you say something that is very personal to me, it does really hurt. I will forgive you but I will remember what you have said.

    Can anybody relate? I'm one of those kinds of

    When people turn their back on me,

    when they walk away I feel like the world is crashing. I know it can't just be me, can't just be me that feels that when people simply turn away without a word it kills them. I've started doing it myself, I'm tired of being the one who gets turned away like a stray dog from...

    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 will always forgive

    and I will do my best to forget and over time, it typically will be gone from my immediate thoughts, but your words hurt me so much. Everyone. And they affect how I see myself, even though they shouldn't.

    I really can be but am often afraid to show it

    as other may find it a weakness and try to exploit it. So I keep it buried as well as possible.

    I hate getting my heart broken

    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...

    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...

    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 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 have always been told I wear my heart on my

    sleeve. It is very hard for me to mask my emotions. However, I don't think I would ever change that about myself. I am a vulnerable person, but I don't see the point in living if you can't be true to who you are and become one with your thoughts and feelings.

    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.
