    Intense Personality

    When I love, I love deeply and passionately. I feel intensely about things and people. There are no half way measures. My husband says I am very black and white about things. I am moved by beauty. I cry easily. Get hurt by the slightest remark. Everything makes a profound...

    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...

    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 Doesn't Mean Psycho

    I have this thing where I feel the need to be honest. Brutally honest. Even when it sucks. Or makes me look bad. In a world where people do anything to avoid admitting they are wrong or to avoid taking responsibility for their actions, I feel very strongly that the people I...

    I Am Also Way Too Intense!

    Your experience is an answer to an inner prayer I just said! Honestly, most of the time I feel like I am so weird for how intensely I feel and express myself! Not sure most people can help. I too am in therapy -- on anti-anxiety meds. I have a legitimate reason for why I am...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Never Really Thought Twice

    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...

    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.

    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...
