I Am More Sensitive Than I Care to Admit

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 633 People

    I sometimes come across

    as this brittle, witty type - but the truth is I'm very tender-hearted. That's a double-edged sword. I love deeply, and for a long time - and I can be easily hurt. But because I'm this way, I try to be more careful of other people's feelings. So - I can have depths of empathy...

    "I Am More Sensitive Than I Care to Admit"

    I have always been Sensitive. I have always been subject to have my feeling hurt, and when someone does that, I am hurt, really bad. It just hurts! I hate it so much. But I guess me being as sensitive that I am, and not being able to hide it as well as others, shows that I am a...

    I Care!

    So many things hurt me but i just brush them off with an "i don't care." Inside it rips me to pieces when people don't see that i do care and I am hurting.

    This Is Kind of a Contradiction, Don't You Think?

    If I didn't care to admit it, then I wouldn't have joined this group.  Right?   So, I admit it.  I am an extremely sensitive person.

    Below The Surface

    I may laugh or seem to brush off your verbal arrows arrows but rest assured that the barbs remain embedded in the flesh for a time. I am far more sensitive than I care to admit. I admit to friends, to family - to the noble few who understand me and who get me. Why tell it at all...

    especially when friend(s)

    that I care about talk to me in a condescending or sarcastic way. I almost always will interpret anything you say and take it literally. If I say Ok or nothing at all back to you then you will know that I have been offended. I will try and give the benefit of the doubt but if...

    Often, I think I am stronger

    than I used to be. Well, I know I am. However, I still take things too personally. Even at work I tear up if I think the doctor is being snippy with me, or my patient doesn't care for my advice or feedback. I cry when I receive a message here that I find upsetting. I cry if...

    *groan*

    It's sickens me to see how easily I feel. I feel so much, it pours out of my mouth and fingertips and ears and eyes. I overflow with this longing to be held and comforted. No one should have to deal with this. Haha when I watch movies and read books sometimes I start thinking the...

    Times Change

    Growing up I was never very emotional. I didn't cry at my father's funeral and he was my hero. Now, though, I find myself too emotional. It started off with sad movies. Then it was sad movies and happy movies. Now just reading or writing sad or touching stories on EP can move me...

    I Hide It Too

    It seems that most peope are ashamed of this and hide it from people, I can relate to that. People think I'm strong and that I can deal with anything, that's why they come and lean on me alot, ut I find it hard. I am sensitive, I do like to cry and I cry a lot. My mum used to...

    I'm not hot or gorgeous.

    I don't have a perfect figure or a fly stomach. I'm far from being considered a model, but, I'm me. I eat food, I have curves, I have more fat than I should, I have scars, I have a history. Some people love me, some like me and some hate me. I have done good, and I have done...

    People Call Me a Rock..

    A friend of mine once said to me "You're like a rock!" Ive built walls, A fortress deep and mighty, That none may penetrate. I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain. Its laughter and its loving I disdain. I am a rock, I am an island.    ...

    I Wear My Heart On My Sleeve

    Whenever I feel strongly about something

    and bring up my opinion, my opinion WILL be waved off as me being sensitive. I don't even know if I am really sensitive or if some people are just disregarding me.
