    I am sensitive to other peoples problems

    specially of friends who are dear to me. To a point that I will do my best to fix them or feel just as sad about it for weeks. Even if i caused the problem and I should back off I feel sad that that person is sad because of me. Others see it as a big issue and I won't lie...

    I don't think people know how sensitive I am.

    The smallest things can hurt me/make me cry. I'm like an egg. I can be easily broken :/

    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...

    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...

    Friendships that are birthed then seem to

    disappear into a bottomless void are the most painful tp bare. It causes grwat heartfelt pain. The more it happens the greater the distress of my heart. This pain is not shared but is wrestled with in my heart in silence

    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 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

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

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

    As a sensitive person I have learned

    that Words can hurt or words can heal. We can choose to give it power or laugh at it and not let it permeate the most delicate parts of our soul. Most of what people say are about them and not you anyway. <3

    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.
