    When a comment is said that hurts me, it really hurts. I can't just pick it up, throw it over my shoulder and forget about it. I need time to work through it, time to reflect, and time to heal from the comment that brought up the past. Most comments trigger an incident from my...

    Too Sensitive?

    I feel like I'm disappearing from my friends. When we all went to different schools, they got new friends and new environments. They seem happy, and I'm glad about that, but I struggle with getting new friends and keeping the old ones. I probably sound like a 10 year-old child...

    Sensitivity

    I think that I am too sensitive.  I have been emotionally abused all my life, so I tend to snap in anger at those people that I percieve to be either putting me down, or betraying me.  I also am guilty of holding grudges for years.  How do you desensitize yourself?  I have...

    I allowed this guy to come into my heart

    when I was vulnerable. Now that he's not showing any compassion for me, except the bedroom., I can't stop thinking of him. Constantly letting him back in after saying it's over.

    I Hurt A Lot

    I'm way too sensitive but I don't show it a lot. I'm used to keeping everything to myself because this is how I grew up. It's not so much what you say to me, it's more the way you say it. I feel things and people, I feel their moods, and it's changed into anguish in me, most of...

    It is a blessing and a curse,
