    Rejection doesn't mean you aren't good enough;

    it means the other person failed to notice what you have to offer.

    I was always way too sensitive.

    It is very easy to make me sad and make me cry... Whenever I see a touching video on the net... for example soldiers coming home from war... when I see those reactions I always think of how much I would love to see my dad come back to me. Yesterday I watched a video where fans...

    I cry easily to touching stories.

    I accept negative criticism but deep inside I am crying so loud. I hate being labelled and misjudge that I'd rather be alone than be with a crowd. I sometimes think that even my own friends doesn't get my true emotion or who I really am.

    Hello, today is my 18th birthday.

    I have "friends", but I wouldn't call them close since none of them actually remembered. I went to school as usual and pretended it wasn't happening and for a while I actually forgot it was. My orchestra teacher had asked me a few weeks ago if I could go to a gig, but I said I...

    Am I the only one who questions their parents

    why they gave us a name such as our names? When I was 13 I threatened to sue my mom for naming me Calliope and she just laughed at me. As I turned older, I brought up the topic again. I asked her that I'll change my name legally and she said "respect your name, God has given us...

    I have always been very sensitive.

    Some people ask me why are you so sensitive? I am like well because I just am. I have a big heart and try my hardest to be nice to everyone. So why do some people have to be so hurtful and mean? I cant understand that?

    Anyone else pick up on emotions

    so easily where you can just walk into a room and know when something's wrong? Sometimes I wish I could ignore it like everyone does.

    Yes, I'm very sensitive.

    And I annoy people because of this. I tend to take things as a personal attack, even if it is not meant as one. I was bullied throughout middle school and part of high school, so I tend to assume people are trying to insult me. I feel ignored and left out very easily, which I...

    I don't know how to express what's in my head,

    because only I understand myself. I cry over everything because after all I've been through I still believe in any and everything and that's the worse part. Crying relieves my pain.

    I think I am a sensitve person

    because a person would say something with no bad intention whatsover and I would take it the other way. Maybe its because my stepdad and mum always gave indirect bad comments towards my siblings so around my friends I subconciously think they're doing the same thing as them

    All it took was a little apathy to make me feel

    badly about myself. I'm disappointed that I've allowed it to get to me. It's not as though I'm not used to getting it from people, so why should this be any different? I'm confused by the way I feel, and I've spent a great deal of time trying to analyze it this evening.

    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
