    I think I'm way too sensitive

    but I can't help it. Even if I logically know in my head that I shouldn't feel so strongly I still feel like I'm dying inside if someone says something hurtful to me. It makes me just want to withdraw from people altogether.

    I'm a 20 year old guy,

    so being sensitive isn't exactly cool, but yea. I love animals so much, and I hate when my friends treat girls like ****

    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

    Why am I feeling that we're drifting off/apart?

    It feels like someone is losing interest. I'm not sure who. It's not like before...I'm not sure what it is. Is it just me or is this the start of my fear? This friendship is supposed to be forever or are we fools to believe in such a thing. My fear of just losing someone so dear...

    I hate the fact that I forgive people to easily.

    .. I hate the fact that I give people way to many chances than I should only for them to do the same thing that I forgave them for for the 100th time... Why do people constantly mess up && constantly want you to forgive them???

    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...

    This is dumb. I had a sub in my spanish class

    all week, and yesterday I asked to "go to the nurse" because this kid plugged his music into some speakers. Every time I'm in a room with loud music, especially with a loud bass, I get SUPER anxious and scared because it never ends well for me thanks to my heart. (Sometime it...

    Super sensitive, that's me!

    but right now I just don't feel a thing. Nothing.. I feel nothing. Emptiness. I know I should feel right now but it seems like it's all gone. Should I be afraid? I don't know what's happening. Just like I said before, maybe, it's the calm before the storm. I should be terrified...

    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.

    Like any other person somethings might end up

    hurting my feelings, and in many cases you might never know it did because I don't like to let my guards down and it's all matter of pride that I absolutely reject allowing any person to feel like they have hurted me in someway or another.

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

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

    Great. He texted me saying he was pretty drunk

    but that I should come round. I said I needed about 15 minutes, but I guess in reality it took more like 25-35 minutes. He messaged me maybe 10-15 minutes before I got there, but when I got there, he didn't answer my texts. So I stood outside for 10+ minutes, waiting for him to...

    Have you ever had so much happen

    and as a sensitive person you just go numb to deal with it all? It's easier to get through it that way. It doesn't feel like such a big deal. It keeps coming at me in waves I can't understand. I feel nothing, I feel hope, I feel despair, I feel excited, I feel worthless, and on...

    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 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...

    People take your kindness

    for weakness. If you are a happy and nice person, people will treat you like an airhead. Just because I don't walk around with a chip on my shoulder, doesn't mean that I'm any less aware of the world than you are.

    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...

    I believe I am a very empathetic person.

    for it. I look weak and vulnerable because of it and I'm made fun of because of it. On other accounts, I'm told that it's okay, that I just feel a bit deeper than others. Maybe I do, I don't know :/
