    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?

    He, my close friend, likes to seek a comfort in

    me. He could be himself while we talk and hang out. But he never reply me back in social media or ask me to hang out with his friend. I felt like he hide me from his circle, somehow. It's hurt, really. Sometimes I want to go away and wishing him to not looking back into me when...

    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...

    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...

    I Still Love You Dad

    My Dad has had court mandated visitation for a while, and he just stopped coming. He never texts or calls, but every time I see him, I can't stay mad at him. I feel like crying when I have to leave because he understands me better than my mom. I let people in, and constantly...

    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...

    I Am Deeply Concerned About My Career.

     I am deeply concerned. As for my career, I am interested in another sector. Actually it is more than interesed. I am sort of in love with this sector. The thing is that my father does not quite allow me to do so, which might sound irony.( Please do not make fun of me.) It...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 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

    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 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...

    I have superficial feelings

    for everything. but when on the rare occasions where something manages to break the walls I put up its pretty scary to me how much I can love. it's pretty terrible how bad the pain gets and it never goes away because I never stop loving.

    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.

    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
