    Life is so fragile. Such a miracle

    for us to be here. To fall in love. To make babies. To breathe. Any minute we can lose our ability to live, to love, and to experience this beautiful thing we call life. Take it all in. Don't waste your time on the small. Open yourself up to the what's really important.

    Isn't it funny how dealing with other people's

    pain is easier than confronting your own?

    I believe I am a very empathetic person.

    I'll often catch tears falling from my eyes when reading a particularly troubling news article that resonates with me, and often I'll shed tears when watching emotional scenes in television programs and movies. It's not a weakness to cry. I find it quite empowering, almost. I...

    And I mean LITERALLY sensitive,

    physically sensitive to just about anything. Thanks to genetics, I'm sensitive to about almost everything. Eye makeup makes my eyes swell and tear up, lipstick make my lips swell up and burn, concealer as whatnot gives me hives. Lotions and perfumes make me break out, hot...

    and my own emotions. I feel every single thing more than deeply. it affects my health, my already physical pain.

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

    people that hides my emotions from everyone, for fear of being judged, to show vulnerability and generally not wanting to bother people with my feelings. It's gotten to the point were i can be completely fine, but certain triggers lead me to abandon my friend group for a few...

    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 think I'm way too sensitive

    but I can't help it. Even if I logically know in my head that I shouldn't feel so strongly I still feel like I'm dying inside if someone says something hurtful to me. It makes me just want to withdraw from people altogether.

    I think sensitivity is something everybody

    should have, because we have all seen people who show insensitivity and that isn't a good thing.

    The littlest insult will make me cry.

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

    When I was 22 I was weedy.

    I had 9 inch biceps on a 34 Inch Chest. One day I was beaten up by 12 year old boy. He kicked me in the balls and I fell to my knees and then from behind he kicked me again in the balls. I was crying with the pain and he broke my balls with his kicks. The strange part about it...

    Have you ever had so much happen

    and as a sensitive person you just go numb to deal with it all? It's easier to get through it that way. It doesn't feel like such a big deal. It keeps coming at me in waves I can't understand. I feel nothing, I feel hope, I feel despair, I feel excited, I feel worthless, and on...

    Why am I feeling that we're drifting off/apart?

    It feels like someone is losing interest. I'm not sure who. It's not like before...I'm not sure what it is. Is it just me or is this the start of my fear? This friendship is supposed to be forever or are we fools to believe in such a thing. My fear of just losing someone so dear...

    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...

    Super sensitive, that's me!

    but right now I just don't feel a thing. Nothing.. I feel nothing. Emptiness. I know I should feel right now but it seems like it's all gone. Should I be afraid? I don't know what's happening. Just like I said before, maybe, it's the calm before the storm. I should be terrified...

    People take your kindness

    for weakness. If you are a happy and nice person, people will treat you like an airhead. Just because I don't walk around with a chip on my shoulder, doesn't mean that I'm any less aware of the world than you are.

    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...

    so highly sensitive, because its so freaking easy for people to say "DONT worry about it" OR "DONT let it get to you" that alone makes it get to me more, and ****** me off when people say that, easier said than done. everything people say gets to me & eats at me. As im getting...

    “Sensitive people are the most genuine

    and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they become the worse type of person. Unfortunately, they end up hurting themselves in...

    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 hate the fact that I forgive people to easily.

    .. I hate the fact that I give people way to many chances than I should only for them to do the same thing that I forgave them for for the 100th time... Why do people constantly mess up && constantly want you to forgive them???

    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.

    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...

    Great. He texted me saying he was pretty drunk

    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...
