    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...

    I only have two responses

    for when people yell at. Either yell back even harder or just sit and sob to myself.

    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 have grown up in a family with very

    aggressive men, I have crippling anxiety because of the the things I saw and heard growing up. So now whenever I hear shouting, my instincts tell me to run and cover my ears with my hands like I have done a thousand times over the years, people don't understand why I...

    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...

    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

    When someone yells at me I usually get angry

    or I want to cry. Most of the time I get angry though.

    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.

    Every time someone yells at me,

    I cower so quickly. It made me sob and lose strength. It made me feel weak, useless, and helpless. I hate to say it, but I get hurt very easily. Even the most lighthearted comment can bring me to tears, make me curl into a ball and cry like a baby if it breached certain...

    yelling is probably the worst thing anyone

    could do to me. I cannot handle yelling. too many memories come with yelling. it scares me. it makes me nervous, nauseous. I would rather someone hold a gun to my head then tell at me. I don't even like to hear others yelling. it makes me sweaty and shaky. yelling is my worst...

    Why are people so ******* grumpy.

    Do not come into my office and start yelling at me. You have two simple answers to create a solution to your drama. A sign the paperwork and get your car back, or B don't sign the paperwork and don't get your car back. I'm not asking you for money, all I need is a signature...

    I don't understand why parents yell

    when they're stressed. You barely say anything to them and they yell at you. Then if you get aggravated and call them out on it they either brush it off like they didn't yell your just being dramatic, or they say well I had a rough day I just got home from work can't I have some...

    so much, I get sick to my stomach at any sign of aggressiveness towards me. And I start shaking, and I cry, and it affects me for hours afterwards. Even if it's only one line that was shouted at me 😔

    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.

    I think I hate being yelled at

    because I didn't have a family that yelled. I know other people that had had alot of yelling in their family and now it's no big deal them. To me it's terrifying and even traumatizing. While I think it's great and all never hearing my parents argue or raise their voices at each...

    I hate being yelled,

    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.

    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...

    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... :(

    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...

    I really do hate being yelled at. My ex used to refer to it as being "shouted down" which fit the feeling perfectly.  There is nothing more futile than having a yelling match with someone when feelings are hurt and hearts are sore.  Often, I've been expected to allow it on the...

    I hate when you mention something to someone

    about what there doing all the time and instead of talking to you they have to blow up at you and make a big scene of it. And then throw things back at you verbally that you never even did.

    I hate it because it triggers my anxiety.

    Unfortunately, when my dad gets mad and yells at me, I get an anxiety attack. This somehow makes him more angry, which makes everything worse for me. I can't win.

    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...
