I Am a Sensitive Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 84,345 People

    Just like a lot of you,

    I am a very sensitive person myself. I think some advice that I can give to you all is to research more about being a sensitive person and ways to combat it. Not sure if a lot of you have heard about what an Empath is but I think it would relate to a lot of you all. Once you...

    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 take everything personally

    and confrontation makes me very upset. I sometimes start crying when I lose arguments and I hate being judged for my appearance

    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.

    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...

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

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

    I am not the most talkative person

    when you first meet. I'm usually waiting for someone to talk to me; and even then I can be a bit standoffish. It is not on purpose. It hurts me when people think I am not friendly, nor approachable. I promise I'm nice. I just have to learn how to come out of my own shell....

    it's more of a mix of overthinking,

    Too much for my own good it seems.

    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

    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...

    Yeah... Not good. I try to hide it, but it's kind of obvious when I've been upset. There are two kinds of people-- The ones who apologize and say they never meant it, trying to make you feel better and planning to never do it again... And the ones that are able to manipulate you...
