    Just because I laugh off all their jokes

    and insults towards me doesn't mean I don't get hurt. I'm a sensitive person. I get hurt easily.

    Nothing ever goes right.

    Ever! I just want somebody to pull the trigger on me and put me out of my misery. I'd give all the money I have, which is nothing, too.

    I've always been sensitive.

    I'm a softie at heart and would probably give my kidney to a stranger- not cuz I don't see myself as important but cuz I'm just really sympathetic. Throughout the years, I had to toughen up/ hide my nice side/ harden my heart in order to not be taken advantage of by certain...

    Living As a Highly Sensitive Person

    I am a Highly Sensitive Person. I am a Highly Sensitive Man. By most standard conventions of society, those two statements are almost certain to get you labeled as at least “a bit strange,” but more likely as a “sissy boy,” “doormat,” or...

    The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

    I heard it was about a tree and a boy. The tree was generous. Very generous, in fact, it may have been too generous. Perhaps a better word for the tree would be altruistic? Being altruistic is giving too much of yourself to someone else and not leaving...

    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'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...

    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...

    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

    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.
