    Real Violence With Yelling Makes Me Cry

    I dont understand why, I just feel I cant think, I go into panic mode and start to break down. Maybe its because I cant see scary movies or war movies. Anyone feel the same way?

    Love...

    People go on and on about how love is beautiful, and how lucky we are to have it, and how we should cherish it and pour it around the world. And we see it in movies and in songs and even in philosophy books on morals. But the truth is I've never gotten anything good out of it...

    Grief

    Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can...

    Too Hurt

    I've come to realise something things these last few days. I tend to attract damaged people. I don't quite know why, but I have come to realise that deep down, under everything else, exists the belief that if I can help them perhaps they won't leave me. To date, this has been...

    The cards I have been dealt are hard to play. I can't be hurt over just about anything depending on the person and situation. I don't like being that way. It's just how I am

    Because It's Easier to Deal With My Own Pain Than Someone Else's.

    I know I can deal with my own pain, both emotional and physicall, but many people can't. Call it being very perceptive at reading body language, or call it being empathic and actually experiencing other people's pain (which is what I truly believe), but I cannot stand seeing...

    I Am Overly Sensitive Sometimes

    There have been so many instances where something someone has said to me has made me very upset in private, even though I try my hardest not to show it. A lot of the time, it has been very small and I know that I'm being unreasonable in all probability, but I can't help it. I...

    I Am Extremely Empathic

    I can feel another's pain.. it can be overwhelming at times and its taken years to be able to turn it off. There are still times of extreme emotion where numerous people I am around are feeling the same way that it gets through and it can at time be debilitating

    Overflowing Ribcage

    In regard to feeling, it is as if I am protected by a thin veil of archaic armor, whilst the majority I have come across are shielded with a bulletproof suit and helmet. Being an emotional sponge can be drastically discouraging when in unhealthy atmospheres. It is emotionally...

    It Hurts.

    I think the title of this group pretty much sums it up for me.  I feel with my whole heart and usually end up having my feelings hurt deeply.  Ti's the nature of my life.

    Still My Heart Is Open

    I have accepted that a person's basic nature doesn't change and part of my personality is being open to having a deep connection with another person.  More than that, opening my heart and allowing someone in.  I suppose the good part is that it is very rare.  I am discerning...

    Strong On The Outside - Jelly On The Inside.

    I'm so sick of being strong, not being listened to, not Being thought of - being spoken at rather than to. Like my feelings don't matter. People don't understand that I have a mental illness, I'm not trying to be awkward or difficult - I generally don't know what to do in...

    I Found The Answer

    I was born with a good heart that feels so much for others in pain or sufferings. Sometimes i was badly hurt because i feel too much. Now i know how to surrender my feelings to God. Only HIM can help.

    Yep, Too Sensitive.

    So much so I've often wondered what it would be like to feel little to nothing at all.  People who don't care always seem so happy. But, I will NEVER, ever be that kind of person.  I care too much and I think it makes people uncomfortable. I've definitely driven away friends...

    Overly Sensitive

    I realize that as men, we are often labeled as insensitive or not in touch with our emotions but I'm not cut from that cloth. More often than not, I wish I could be less sensitive, less empathic and able to block out things on command. Almost like hitting the 'mute' button on the...
