    Too Serious

    I can't believe sometimes when I catch myself being so intense. And then realizing that it is really down there somewhere all along, even when it's not showing.  My focus is so strong, I'm no longer aware of the world around me. I'm sure it comes from being too serious...

    Worried

    In the past I have tried to hide my intensity – it caused someone I loved to walk away from me…someone that had professed to love me decided that it was too much – he wanted me but a slightly less intense version of me. For weeks I battled with myself &ndash...

    My Mind; The Vortex Of Wisdom And Emotions!

    "I Am Intense", what can I say the title doesn't lie.  I will blow you away.  You may think I'm exaggerating but just spend one day talking to me and you'll see.  I may make  some admirers that same day, and I may as well as push some away.  But what...

    Am I Too Much?

    My friends are laughing at me that I am just too intense in what I like. It is actually true. If I like a subject I explore it till I get tired. If I like a movie or a book - I watch it several times till I figure out all the details and get my fill. It is difficult for me to...

    Be Your Own Example Of Kindness

    When I was younger, getting bashed by people you haven't or have known for a while is tremendous feeling. It affects me to a point of wanting to confront the person impulsively. Some would advise for me to drag the basher and show my violent side and some would tell me to calm...

    Amplified.

    I'm pretty damn intense. Is there any such thing as being too passionate? It's not that I'm crazy, per se, it's just that everything I think and feel seems to be so.. amplified. And as far as my interests go, it seems like things have to be equally wild and passionate in...

    Letting Go of Intensity

    I have been told that I'm too intense often -  so I have to accept that is how some people see me. Yes the feelings are often too deep and I hang on to them part of me refusing to let go. Yet this is not as much of a problem as it used to be - as I see the intensity as...

    Intense

    I have come to realise that in past relationships I have been too intense which I believe is due to lack of confidence and insecurity.  Knowing this now means I can try to do something about it.

    I'm intense - many people who have known me on here would tell you that. So would my customers, whether I'm prattling away over some newsworthy issue or lying in bed quietly listening to my music - it's always there. That super intensity that seems to remain inches from the...
