    Once upon a time I used to have low self esteem

    and low self confidence. It's not that I'm now high on these things but I went through a process in my mid to late twenties that transformed and liberated me of a curse that I used to believe I'd never escape. I am also a sensitive person, which used to be hypersensitivity. Last...

    The littlest insult will make me cry.

    They call it attention seeking but a lot of things upset me. I can't control myself.

    My cat killed a pigeon.

    I buried it and cried for ages. Don't know why I got so hysterically upset about it.

    I sit in the same room

    as you all and I'm invisible. I speak and you speak over me, my voice never to be heard. I'm scolded for never being home, for working so much, being a invisible parent. I sit and listen and wished I was invisible. One day I will sit in the same room, be seen and my voice will...

    My beloved pet rabbit butters passed away.

    He was part Flemish giant so he was a big bunny of about 10 pounds. He somehow managed to get internal bleeding. His vet suspects he injured himself jumping up on a ledge inside his cage. So sad. He was my little buddy. I held him as she put him to sleep. He was totally limp...

    I'm starting to see that being over sensitive

    to almost everything can be a joy, not just a burden. I feel like I live my day to day life on a deep, passionate level because of it. Not only does my hypersensitivity help me to be empathetic and understanding towards my friends and peers, but I also experience sights, sounds...

    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...

    Hi, I'm Katie and I am a sensitive person,

    no lie. My feelings get easily hurt and I don't understand how some people can be so mean and rude. Once, I was hanging out with some friends and someone mentioned how chubby I looked in my dress. I cried. I know, they only said that I was chubby but it still hurt my feelings...

    Feels like I'm going to go broke.

    Life was not that I dreamed of when I was young. All worries are relentless and sometimes have time I almost did not get air. What if there was a pause button so I got some rest. So tired. So terribly tired and jacking of my partner are conspicuous by their absence. I will...

    Being sensitive is not the same

    as being weak. Your crying at everything and being submissive to people who use you don't necessarily make you a sensitive person. Sensitive people are beautiful. They see and feel everything deeply, and so they have an appreciation for things other people don't usually notice.

    My husband's wife passed in 2006 from a long illness. In 2008 he was on a dating website trying to meet women. He met me at a coffee shop in the mall while I was shopping for my son's birthday present. We dated a few months before having sex. We had sex at my house a few times...

    Are you ever somehow confident talking to

    someone and after you're done talking, you start overthinking??? "Do they hate me?" "Did I say something bad?" "I just embarrassed myself" "They're never gonna want to speak to me again..." "Was I mean?" "Did I rub them the wrong way?"

    I've been sensitive ever

    since my dad was kidnapped when I was almost 5. The event traumatized me. My earliest childhood memory is having a nightmare where some strange man takes my dad around a corner, and when I follow around the corner, they're gone. When I woke up, it was past midnight. I saw my dad...

    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...

    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...

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

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

    for my own good.. It's because I'm such a caring person and I can't help but take things to heart.
