    I honestly hate being

    so highly sensitive, because its so freaking easy for people to say "DONT worry about it" OR "DONT let it get to you" that alone makes it get to me more, and ****** me off when people say that, easier said than done. everything people say gets to me & eats at me. As im getting...

    I am a very emotional person

    and I think of that as a bad thing and as a weakness, but I rationally know that it is not. Today I cried a few times with nothing remarkable to explain why. My triggers came in pairs yesterday almost with a shared need to drag me to what I had ignored. I wonder briefly if I...

    People have no idea how much pain I can be in.

    Some days I just want to stay in bed and cry, but I don't. I go out to live my life with my head held high and smile on my face. I pretend like the constant insults and punches, and threats don't bother me. I hold everything in, and sometimes I have to pile up more by helping...

    i cant take much criticism

    and I also take some things way to personally. when one thing goes wrong, I magnify every other bad thing.

    The littlest insult will make me cry.

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

    I’m so sad today because I try

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

    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...

    way that I do. If what I say is bringing up the past you never put it in your past. I just say nothing because it doesn't matter if I speak or not. my caring is never in front of what I say to you just where you go that you avoid so much. deal with you fu#?__ past so I can be...

    One thing I really hate about myself is

    that the slightest comment made about me by others has such a profound affect on me. I wish I could brush things off instead of letting people make me feel like everything is my fault.

    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.

    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...

    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?"

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    More so than most men.
