    I sit in the same room

    as you all and I'm invisible. I speak and you speak over me, my voice never to be heard. I'm scolded for never being home, for working so much, being a invisible parent. I sit and listen and wished I was invisible. One day I will sit in the same room, be seen and my voice will...

    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...

    I'm Hypersensitive

    This means I can feel more than most people feel. I am sensitive to everything, noise, violence, lack of empathy, lack of love of people around us, in our society... I am sensitive in places where there are bad energy, negative atmosphere. I used to have a hard time with my...

    I don't know why, just someone can

    so much as SOUND a little annoyed with me and I'll feel really bad about it. It doesn't even have to be my fault if someone gets mad at me, someone can just be short tempered from having a bad day, have a mental disorder, or just be plain stupid, and I'll be frightened and then...

    I can feel when someone is unhappy.

    . sometimes I choose to not address it because a person has the right to feel whatever they want to feel. But it's a sad thought that.. they are unhappy by themselves. We humans are already alone.. and being alone physically is enough, imagine how much more pain there is, when...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    My friend once tried playing a trick on me by

    pretending to be upset with me when I snuck a picture of her whenever she wasn't looking. Our group of friends do this all the time so I was shocked when she started sounding angry with me over GroupMe. I started crying because I though she was genuine and didn't want to be my...

    “Sensitive people are the most genuine

    and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they become the worse type of person. Unfortunately, they end up hurting themselves in...

    My heart aches for people.

    When I love, I love strong. That's why when I am in a relationship I yearn for a deep connection. When I am with you, your family becomes mine. Your worries become mine. Your heart literally becomes attached to mine. When you don't get that in return, it hurts. My last...

    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 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 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...

    the actions or words u think might nt hurt actually turn out to be d most painful. I always try my best to do good to people cos I know how I feel when I'm being neglected. I jus feel every1 has a sensitive spot so the best way to relate wid dem is to jus nt poke dat spot.
