I Hate Being Yelled At

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,044 People

    Well, who doesn't? My mother whipped up some

    words at a foul volume when I was a child. She started again now that I have a little sister. And it doesn't have to be directly at me to cause harm.

    And to be told Im overly sensitive.

    I'm not sensitive but yes I am a human being with emotions. Why would it EVER be OK to scream and shout in raw fury at ANYONE and let alone your loved ones? My husband thinks it's absolutely normal and that I should just "get on with it" and stop being so childish about it. I...

    Blah Blah Blah

    I am getting sick and tired of people always treating me like crap and yelling at me for no reason. Why do I always have to get yelled at by my parents for no reason at all. My mom goes off on me for whatever people in this house leave things laying around. I am the targeted...

    I Won't Listen

    So raising your voice at me doesn't do any good. You can get your point across without trying to intimidate me or whatever it is you're trying to do before I tuned you out.

    I remember when I was little

    and my parents would tell at each other or tell at me I would cry and have my sister help me cover my ears. Now when I get yelled at I usually have a panic attack and one time I had such a big panic attack I ran away

    In Place Of Talking...

    I don't mind a good argument here and there in life and sometimes, even though it's not my first method of communication by choice, I can see the stress relief in it at times.  What I dislike, very much, is the way some people feel the need to talk in a yelling tone.  My boss...

    Here's the conversation: Mom: *hands me a hair tie* Me: where did all the hair ties I bought go? This is the only one in my container. Mom: I'm wearing one, there might be some in the bathroom. Me: *goes to bathroom, comes back holding 7* Mom: are you taking all those or...

    I Have Always Hated Yelling

    When people yell out of anger it sends chills down my spine, even if it isn't directed towards me. It makes me extremely anxious even hearing my neighbors fight. It just makes me uneasy and nervous.

    When I get yelled at,

    especially when I haven't done anything wrong, I feel so small, I just want to disappear. It always makes me want to cry.

    Not Again

    I hate being yelled at.  Last night was another big fight at our house.  My husband is such an ***.  I was having one of my employees over to give him some beef. I have to pick up another 1/2 tomorrow and need to still get rid of some in my freezer.  It's...

    I Don'T Cope Well With It At All

    I can't take it. It always just hurts me really bad and makes me really nervous so I end up going into my own little seclusion. In that little seclusion, I go blank and can only say "I'm fine, I'm okay," until i start weeping. I lock myself away from the world and cry 'til I feel...

    I Can'T Stand It.

    When someone yells at me I just go into my shell. I can't stand being yelled at, it brings on flashbacks, and things I don't need to think about. Having complex PTSD compounds the experience and turns it into something traumatic. I'm learning to cope a little now, but it's still...

    Today a customer yelled at Kitten

    and it got very sad. She had to subtly wipe the tears out of her eyes and go to the bathroom and cry after. Usually she doesn't cry like that anymore but it was just too much today! People are mean to Kitten cuz she's forgetful sometimes... :(

    I Really Hate It...

    I was yelled and screamed at a lot as a kid, which is why I think I hate yelling. Not only that, but I grew up with adults screaming at each other all the time and having to hide with my mother when I was really young. That was a really long time ago, but I think that's why...

    Recently, I went to a friend's house to spend a

    night. I'll never forget how dramatic it was. My friend's dad comes home drunk and immediately, the mother starts yelling at him and swearing at him. There were threats being made and the mother even held a butcher knife. A butcher's knife for ****'s sake. The dad was only...

    It makes me feel bad inside.

    My father yells at me for the smallest things. Never yells at my sister or anything. His words can really hurt me. He keeps saying that he doesn't like talking to me because I never do what he asks. What I don't get is why he thinks that if my sister doesn't do her chore, I...

    You don't even understand the emotional stress

    I go through whenever I talk to my dad. Because he alway starts yelling at me. I can't even explain what I feel. It's like I want to lash out at him, but I'm afraid I'll get hit or something. I feel guilt. Soo much guilt and it starts eating me. I feel defeated. Like I can't...

    I try to tough it out

    and not to tear up in front of them, I'll normally keep a neutral face but the moment I feel secure and away, out come the waterworks. It's hard being a sensitive person.

    The title of this group really needs to be

    renamed. I mean is there anybody out there who actually likes being yelled at? Of course not....it's a no brainer. They (whoever can do this) should rename this group to "I was recently yelled at by some jerk' or something like that

    I hate being yelled. But what's worse?

    Being yelled at by an obvious immature moron; or being talked to dangerously calm by someone civil and mature? When I'm being yelled at I want to punch the speaker in the mouth, when I'm being calmly talked to I feel stupid and want to hide in my shirt. (Of course I only mean...

    It's hard to express emotions

    and not carried away in the emotions. It's hard to talk to people when you are talking about something that might hurt the other person, and then in turn, hurt you. It's hard to talk to people about your emotions without crying and then you feel bad about crying because crying...

    so I help them who yelled at me by doing the oposites so they yell more until it reach the top of their lung. I tried that last time. And it works. Someone apologized and promised not to yell anymore.

    When someone yells at me it scares me so terribly because I don't know what they will do next. I normally just start crying. I don't know what to do or to say to calm someone down when they are yelling. It is the most terrifying thing to me. Talking loud is one thing but when it...
