I Am Too Intense For Some People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,372 People

    Apparently, I'm too negative.

    But I'm sick of the whole 'turn that frown upside down', 'chin up', and 'just be positive' bullcrap!!! Personally, I see it as just being realistic and not wasting energy on fanciful notions.

    What you don't know about me is?

    I hate the masks, and the way we are with each other. What you don't know about me is? I am an old school. I believe in the morals of the past. What don't we know about you?

    I'm Too Deep....Even For Myself.

    Whatever I do, I do it deeply. Emotions are things that I know all too well about. I'm very intense, and sometimes I bring others into my intense world. Some can handle it, while others tend to cower. Some are still around, while others have retreated back into their plain...

    the problem is that I take everything to an

    extreme. It scares a lot of people and that's how my first solid relationship was doomed. but now, I've applied the same intensity to my career and it's doing miracles.

    A Castle Of Dark And Light

    There is a reason I won’t let you in, why you may breach the walls of the castle, but you will never breach the fortress within. First, I don’t want you in that deep, I don’t want you to see the darkness, the cobwebs, and the few precious jewels that I have inside, I don...

    I'm short, people say I look like a puppy,

    and I'm adorable. Then when they get to know me they say, "WHY IS SO MUCH PERSONALITY IN A SMALL BODY!".

    Autism is a deal-breaker

    for me. When you tell me you have Aspergers, you're basically telling me that a relationship of any kind is virtually impossible.

    I Can Be Too Honest

    Like the title said, I can be way to honest, I say what I think and that's usually pretty cold and straight. No dancing around the truth I always say, but it's way too intense for some people, they hate it and stop talking to me. It's hard to find people who can bear the truth...

    Loving Too Intensely - Is It Possible?

    When someone invites me into their life and I invite them into mine, I assume that the friendship is given from that point on. Or if it is love, that there is an unstated agreement that we'll take it further. When I love, I love with all that I am. I want that person to be...

    I choose to be a passionate person.

    Each day I live my life from that perspective. I tend to be intense on conversation and when listening. Even when flirting with a woman I am filled with intensity. Normally I flirt while talking about social issues, divergent thought and challenges to the social norm. These have...

    Well if toning it down

    for their sake feels fake, then maybe they should meet halfway and stop being weak and timid and know by being your friend that that comes with the territory. If they can't understand, then send em off with an "intense" good bye!

    Some Things Don't Change

    Yesterday I met someone whom I had not seen for more than half my life. After a few minutes of conversation he went quiet then said, "So you're still just as intense then?" I guess that when we are the intense ones, we don't notice so easily how blatant our intensity is. My...
