    I wish that things didn't get to me.

    I tend to feel rejected and abandoned by some of the many "friends" that never called back, never wrote me to check how I was doing. I don't know what to do because I can't please everyone at the same time, and it tears me down inside to realize people only want me as long as...

    As A Reincarnationist, I Believe That High Sensitivity Is Needed For Spiritual Growth

    I'm a true HSP.  It's hard to live in a world that is generally color-blind (black and white) but to instead experience brilliant shades of color and texture and depth everywhere.  Of course I have been told the same things, "You think too much"; "You always make a...

    I feel from afar. I can sense the emotion

    as you draw the lines.you don't need to tell me each word. I can hear your intention through the quiet whispers of the wind. I understood before you had spoken any. But I cannot deny the gnawing pain. I knew I was losing you. I grieved for the love that I had lost which I though...

    I guess I am a sensitive person.

    I share my feelings and I don't try to hide it. I don't always speak what's on my mind if I know those words are going to hurt someone. Therefore, in return, I don't like to be criticized and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's all how you phrase it. Like if my...

    I have always worn my heart on my sleeve.

    It doesn't take much to bruise my feelings, but I do my best to never let someone know. A smile, a joke and assuming care of another's emotions are my sword and shield. If I let you in, please know I take comfort in caring for you.

    Actually I enjoy putting losers in their place.

    I can deal with a lot of bullshit and rude remarks without giving a damn. However, when it (unexpectedly) comes from a person I love and care about, I find myself helplessly fragile.

    I'm too sensitive. When someone says something

    a bit nasty to me I don't react to it, I usually brush it off and then think about what that person said to me later. Only then do I get angry and upset. I don't know why it takes me so long to process things but it does.

    Sometimes I think I can be over sensitive,

    the littlest things can set me off, and make me cry. Other times I just don't care. I wonder if i'll ever find someone who could actually handle my wild female mood swings. Haha๐Ÿ’›

    I wish I wasn't so sensitive.

    I admit that I tend to get easily hurt or offended by people and wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm also a very emotional person. On the outside, I'm physically strong, but in the inside, I'm very tender and fragile. So, please be gentle and handle me with care. :)

    It's a gift and a curse.

    Maybe too sensitive at times.

    I'm a very sensitive person.

    I don't tell many people this but I'm a cryer. I cry when I'm angry, frustrated or sad. It just happens. I'm also a very empathic person. I worry about others and their pain upsets me as much as my own.
