SEND TO A FRIEND:

    It was my girlfriends birthday today.

    We were looking forward to our night out all week long, and I'd put a lot of thought into giving her a present that I knew she would love. When it came to the night, I ended up being rude and phasing out to half of the conversation going on between her and her friend. It wasn...

    Bf likes pics like this on facebook all the time

    and Ik he doesn't mean to upset me but seeing all these women that aren't anything like me that he likes looking at really makes me upset. I feel like bawling my eyes out. Doesn't he realize that these pictures make me feel worse about myself and make me even more self conscious...

    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 feel so much. I tear up at just about

    anything. I can sympathize with someone else's pain, I can understand it, but why can't i handle talking to them about it? I don't like when people open up to me because it makes me really uncomfortable. If you are telling me over text I can give you really good advice and such...

    My thoughts are ravaged by shame

    and regret for the sins I've committed and the deeds I left undone. I'm truly sorry for my trespasses, and for all the time I was standing still. And yet, for as deeply as I feel my lash as it lands for every outburst and misunderstanding and jest gone wrong, I am quite sure...

    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...

    What happens to the mind

    when no longer it knows what is false and what is right? I hear her in my mind, her happy little steps – I see me falling, I'll take her with me my dear – there's nothing here. I couldn't, I would never. I can't breathe either. I feel fine. I know the hope has run out...

    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...

    I often ferl like a crybaby.

    I often cry and can easily start to do that. When I watch an anime with a good story for example and there is a sad part, I often start to cry. I dive into the anime so much that I get overwhelmed easily. I once had some friends who left me. And m mommy and daddy died. I often...

    Yep, I try not to be

    but I just can't help it. Well I mean in social interactions I can get offended very easily, but I act like I'm not because 9 times out of 10 what that person said wasn't meaning to be offensive.

    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...

    The littlest insult will make me cry.

    They call it attention seeking but a lot of things upset me. I can't control myself.

    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...

    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.

    I don't know what is happening to me.

    . I feel like I need to care less. Caring has had some positives in my life, but the majority has only led to sadness and hurt. I am always sensitive to other's feelings but I rarely get that in return. I used to be an optimist but that is getting tougher everyday. If I care less...

    so easily where you can just walk into a room and know when something's wrong? Sometimes I wish I could ignore it like everyone does.

    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...

    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...

    It is very easy to make me sad and make me cry... Whenever I see a touching video on the net... for example soldiers coming home from war... when I see those reactions I always think of how much I would love to see my dad come back to me. Yesterday I watched a video where fans...
