    Veryyy Sensitive.

    I'm extremely sensitive in both a physical and emotional sense, and I've always been this way ever since I was young. For example... whenever anyone barely even brushes my side, I can't help but give out a little high pitched squeal. I also have a very low pain tolerance, it...

    It's a Hard Way to Live Life

    I take everything personally, and get my feelings hurt very easily. The only way to combat this is if I happen to be sad or depressed, because in me, that gets translated into anger and indifference, and then, obviously, I don't care about anything.

    I Am Always Getting Hurt.

    I know I am too sensitive.  I used to think everyone took things so personally, but sometimes I will be telling people "Guess what so and so said..." and they ask "Does that really bother you?"  Well, yes, it does....I guess I just always look for...

    Perhaps this is the reason

    why I had a messed up social life for most of my childhood. As a kid I used to be short tempered. If I got hurt I would cry uncontrollably. At some point I decided to stop crying and go on the offensive. So everytime Someone hurt me I would go berserk. Because of that I got into...

    Once I went to the see a psychologist.

    While waiting outside his clinic, I saw a couple- a man, a woman who looked like his wife. The man had a rotund face and sat slouching in the chair, eyes indifferent. The wife had a thin haggard look. She was sitting ramrod straight and her eyes darted around like she was...

    I've Never Met Another Sensitive Person!!

    When I grew up, my siblings said I was too sensitive. Not only do I feel things very deeply, like movies and music, but I also have a hard time cooling down once someone annoys me. I prefer to have no friends of my own (apart from my wife's friends) because they can't seem to...

    That's Me!

    I like to see other people happy. As well as be happy myself.   When I see someone upset, it upsets me too. I take everything to heart. I have had people view this in a negative way, But to me it means I am caring, and have a warm heart. So what if I cry over sappy ...

    Sensitivity Can Hurt

    Looking back I have come to the conclusion my sensitivity derived from my childhood.  There was very little support, Love or anything for that matter.  There was however verbal and physical punishment.  Never new when, for nothing.   All through school I...

    A Sensitive Target

    I'm Sensitive, That's Right...

    i wouldn't have it any other way! at times, emotions can seem to be too much to handle and over-bearing, but in the long run, these emotions help us to learn, strive and love even better. god gave me them for great reasons, i'm sure!

    How Can I Change After All These Years?

    I have always been a fortress - scared to let people see me and my overwhelming emotions. I can't risk people not understanding me as the consequences are to much to take. I've created many barriers to protect myself. I barely let people in, never give too much information...

    The Self Inflicted Tears of a Silly Little Boy...

    It makes perfect sense don’t you think? There was once a time when you were thrust into a euphoric realm, where people did nothing but see the things that were good in you. Things, of which, you never even knew existed. You had this entirely knew circle of “friends...

    I Am

    I feel things very heavily not just emotionally, but also physically. I can feel vibrations in sounds, when people walk, even the heat of another body ten feet away from me. Then there is my hearing. I can hear my heart beat at all times if I wish it. I can hear noises that most...
