    Besides years of bullying,

    my sensitivity also stems from a traumatic event that happened to my family. I was 4-years-old at the time, almost 5. My dad was a maintenance man at a motel. It was October, and he was working extra hours to get some extra money for my birthday next month. While working in a...

    It really annoys me..

    The fact that I'm a guy with a sensitive heart annoys me so much. Tbh I wish I could be mean and rude to people, I wouldn't suffer all the time.. I just wish I didn't care so much about everything

    I am a sensitive person.

    I have the gift of empathy, which is a big part of my personality. My therapist doesn't call it being "sensitive", she calls it having a higher level of emotional intelligence. I think there's some truth there. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, I tend to love very...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Being bullied in school every day

    for so many years caused me to hate myself and hate life. As I grew older, I learned to accept myself for who I am, but the damage from years of bullying is still there. I try to be strong, but sometimes life gets to be too much for me, but I try to hold it all in for the sake...

    so easily. Someone said something to me today, and it hurt like a slap to the face. I feel myself spiraling downwards once more and I'm crying. I wish I wasn't this way where you can hurt me so badly with a few words. I hate it. I'm too easy to hurt and it makes me want to cry...

    It doesn't matter even

    if I wanted it to be the contrary, wishing won't make a difference. It's not something bad nor I think, is it good. It has its moments. Though, in my opinion, being sensitive is closely related to being irrational, which really bothers me, cause I feel as though I am most of...

    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.

    You can't just understand others easily.

    When you think you did, they sometimes do something confusing and most of the time, hurtful. Hurtful, if you're a sensitive, complicated person. And it makes it all the more easy to cry.

    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. :)
