I Am a Sensitive Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 76,644 People

    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.

    Am I the only one who questions their parents

    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...

    I try to be sensitive to my friends.

    I listen to my girl friends talk about their relationship drama, and I like being there for my guy friends too. If we all paid attention to each others needs just a little more, we would all be much happier!

    I met someone on here 8 weeks ago.

    We instantly hit it off. We messaged all day, everyday. We exchanged phone numbers, pictures, videos, deep conversation, a million "I love you". She's been silent now for 30 hours and we've never gone longer than a couple hours before. How can someone that loves you, just not...

    I'm not sure if sensitive would be the right

    word for this but I probably blush the most out of any person on the earth and I tear up over trivial things. I hate that I do it but I can't control it.

    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

    Sometimes it feels like I'm a total ****-up and then people get annoyed with me and I feel even worse. I try not to **** up, I really do, but it sometimes feels like I'm just in the way or being clumsy. When somebody 'has a go' at me for making a mistake it fills me with so...

    I regularly get this compliment.

    Why? I actually do not think that I am worth that complment. My question is why am I kind to other people. The normal reaction is to get something out of that. Ok let me just explain. I recently help a young lady to get through a very difficult time. She about 32 years younger...

    yes I'm over sensitive.

    I cry when **** upsets me, I rage when things make me angry I Love to intensely. I think being sensitive makes us vulnerable to people who lack empathy.

    My eyes swell with tears

    if an adult gets onto me. If someone says something rude to me it ruins my day. I let people get to me more than I should. I cry at the stupidest things. My face turns red. I hate being sensitive.
