    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...

    I work at a place that involves watching others

    pass away. today was a bad day, but it was also busy and I'm not sure if death affects me too deeply, or if I'm becoming callous and it doesn't strike deep enough. I wonder if I'm becoming selfish, or if I've always been selfish. with each passing person, I only think more...

    I work as a tutor for K-5 on reading,

    writing and math.. and today a student of mine approached me with this particular story book. We read and we reached this page.. it was when I realized how sad life is when only a book is the only one who can reassure that you are safe.. and protected.

    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...

    I wish there was a switch you can just turn off

    emotions and live care free. I want to feel nothing.

    Some people view me as emotionless

    and cold, because I do my best not to burden people with my problems. But...I AM sensitive to things. Really. Just get to know me.

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

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