    Even Online I'm the Same

    It's a bit annoying when even online if I'm questioned, mocked, teased, gained up on, mostly by adults which is funny, and I can still get really hurt and maybe a little confused. I'm waaay too sensitive and I do feel deeply, its just who I am. Personally, life's hard for me.. I...

    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...

    I feel so deeply and connect emotionally with

    someone who I think loves me the same, but I always get hurt because my love is never returned at the level I give. So I ask myself ... Do u care too much? Should I care for a woman who isn't going to return it? Or does it matter? Maybe u should just give up?! It hurts so bad...

    In the past, alot of times I get infatuated easily, and , ahem, they don't feel the same way? Then I get the hurt paralysing my soul for a time. I love deeply, and want to loved back the same way. I also experience music and movies intensely.

    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

    when I feel deeply for other people it feels

    good I confide in them but that's my downfall because everyone slowly leaves even when they say that they won't and them leaving isn't even the worst part the betrayal is the worst and the fact that they used me used me then discarded me like a rotten banana

    Completely

    I've always felt things deeply or to the extreme, since I was a kid. When a person is hurting, I can't help but to feel it, to the deepest core of me. And so I rush in and try to help, often times. This can be dangerous sometimes, because some tend to lash out at the...

    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.

    I feel things deeply.

    I believe it when someone tells me that they love me. I get hooked fast. I fall hard. The other person doesn't always feel the same...most of the time actually. Then I am left to pick up the pieces of my life again. You would think that I would eventually learn. But I...

    Strong On The Outside - Jelly On The Inside.

    I have a kind heart and a gentle soul

    and I often get hurt. I tend to put everything into a relationship and love deeply and unconditionally. I want to find someone that will accept me for who I am and appreciate me for the kind hearted, gentle, loving and affectionate person that I am.

    Overflowing Ribcage

    The sound of the fan calms me.

    It's too quiet without a fan. A soothing sound, it is. Calming moments, it brings. (Channeling Yoda). It's just me and my fan in this moment. Just me with this smile on my face. My thoughts of intimate moments once upon yesterday. I savor the feeling taking a permanent...

    I'm told weekly about how I'm "such a good guy".

    To what reasoning? It's a blessing but mostly a curse. It's become something that I associate as negative. Because being a "good guy" seems to be nothing but a bunch of bullshit... Something people desire but never truly take full advantage of and cherish. Being a good guy is a...

    I didn't. Not for years.

    .. Well into my 20s. And it almost killed me. The rage, the dangerous situations and lifestyle. In my 30s I chose to live. And I learned that meant to feel. And, honestly, sometimes I think feeling the way I do - as deeply as I do - is going to kill me.

    I've been through a lot in my life

    and I let my emotions go deeply but I always get hurt by caring so much, even with my friends. It's like no matter how good of a person you are and try to be, someone will never treat you as good as the way you treat them and it hurts
