    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...

    I feel things so deeply.

    I worry about what others think, feel or do. I know what others do is beyond my control, but I still am affected by my own inability to cut off my emotions.

    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.

    The most crappiest thing happen to me.

    There's only so much that I can handle and be fine, but half of the time I'm not. I'm not the one to share my emotions cause you can't fix what's already broken, why worth your while

    I'm such a fragile soul,

    I think that's why I relate to people easily because I don't judge them. My struggles have taught me understanding and also that we are all battling with something .

    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.

    At least when it comes to people I care about.

    I have a pretty thick emotional skin when it comes to people I don't know, or even people I don't know that well. But when it comes to the people I let into my life in a heavy and influential way, that's where I get sensitive.

    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 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...
