    It really annoys me..

    The fact that I'm a guy with a sensitive heart annoys me so much. Tbh I wish I could be mean and rude to people, I wouldn't suffer all the time.. I just wish I didn't care so much about everything

    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...

    Yesterday, at the bright age of 27,

    They say I have nothing to feel bad about

    myself. So why I got that panic attack now? That's so pathetic! I can't believe my mind is so darn irrational. How can I be so stupid, know that I'm being stupid and insist on keeping being stupid? Or maybe I have a hidden logic that I'm not aware of?

    I am grateful for my sensitivity,

    it may mean I cry in Disney movies and empathise frequently, it also means I can feel more deeply, and that's a big part of how I make sense of the world

    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'm a sensitive person; yes.

    I don't like when people raise their voices or talk down to me. Fighting back is not one of my better values. I'm also sensitive to people. I don't have many friends but the ones I have, I'm very sensitive to. I feel their emotions with them. I never take anything they say...

    I REPEAT! Being a sensitive person IS DIFFRENT
