    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    One thing I really hate about myself is

    that the slightest comment made about me by others has such a profound affect on me. I wish I could brush things off instead of letting people make me feel like everything is my fault.

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

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

    My beloved pet rabbit butters passed away.

    He was part Flemish giant so he was a big bunny of about 10 pounds. He somehow managed to get internal bleeding. His vet suspects he injured himself jumping up on a ledge inside his cage. So sad. He was my little buddy. I held him as she put him to sleep. He was totally limp...

    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.

    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 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...

    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...
