    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...

    Had a bad work experience today.

    I will never understand why people have to be rude to one and other. I just do not appreciate people not treating me with an equal respect. I guess nice people do get the short stick sadly.

    I had a dream about my husband last night

    and it was great then I woke up to him rubbing my arm. It's those gentle touches that I miss.

    This is one of the reasons

    that I usually have problems with society. Apart from the fact that I have Autism, I am also a very sensitive person. I find that I shake when I am in the presence if a person, or people, who hate me or don't like me. I can tend to sometimes take to heart what people say about...

    The tiniest little comment can send me

    spiralling off into a deep pit of despair. I can't handle criticism at all and insults dig right under my skin. Of course, I don't let that show. I laugh it off or punch the person or insult them back or whatever. I prove that I can stay unbothered by it all. But when I go home...

    I may not always show it.

    When I am with people I feel fine but when I'm alone I'm flooded with my feelings and only cry when alone.

    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...

    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

    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...

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

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

    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...

    The littlest insult will make me cry.

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

    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.

    I was always way too sensitive.

    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...

    Love is difficult. My friend likes a boy

    who is 6 years younger than her. He does not know she likes him. He won't know forever. When she pretended as drunk, he hold her. She wanted to kiss him. But she was afraid they might not be friend, she did not do that.

    Can anybody relate? I'm one of those kinds of

    I sometimes get set off by the tiniest of

    Some people who say they are sensitive are only

    sensitive to what happen to them...and not sensitive to what they do to others!! If a person is sensitive, I believe it is positive only when it is being sensitive to the feelings of others too...else it is more like being a 'cry baby'.
