I Am a Sensitive Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 90,915 People

    It's just how I am. Like I can take an insult

    and an opinion easily, but when it's from someone I care about, it hurts badly... I guess it's because I'm not use to be shot down by someone I'm close to.

    I know I'm only 15, but I feel like I

    understand things better than some older people lol. When someone says "someone's getting raped" as a joke when someone yells in the hallway or talk about how gay something is, I feel the need to say something back, which is kinda hard considering I'm not exactly intimidating. I...

    I’m so sad today because I try

    I hate the fact that i feel like an outcast in

    my own house. I hate that no matter what i do, it isnt good enough. I am so sick and tired of being used and stabbed in the back. I deserve happiness.

    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...

    I'm 69 years old and have an emotional side I

    don't mind sharing. Sometimes I think some see sensitivity as a weakness, but I feel its an emotional release to things being kept inside.

    I've been bullied for 11 years now

    and the 11th year has been the hardest on me. One more year and then I will never see them or be bullied by them ever again.

    I wear my heart on my sleeve,

    I seem to get hurt more than I deserve. I'm slowly losing faith in humanity. what happened to treating people with kindness?

    I have always been very sensitive.

    Some people ask me why are you so sensitive? I am like well because I just am. I have a big heart and try my hardest to be nice to everyone. So why do some people have to be so hurtful and mean? I cant understand that?

    The more scars in life you get,

    the more sensitive you become, I guess.

    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...

    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...

    I had no idea where to write this,

    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...

    Anyone else pick up on emotions

    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.

    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 fall apart every night,

    just an overwhelming sense of sadness sweeps over me and I start to recall every sad memory. I feel lost and tired and afraid. Things get to me too much. I wish I did not feel this much.

    I cry easily to touching stories.

    I accept negative criticism but deep inside I am crying so loud. I hate being labelled and misjudge that I'd rather be alone than be with a crowd. I sometimes think that even my own friends doesn't get my true emotion or who I really am.

    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...

    I don't know how to express what's in my head,

    because only I understand myself. I cry over everything because after all I've been through I still believe in any and everything and that's the worse part. Crying relieves my pain.

    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.
