I Hate Being Yelled At

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,097 People

    I don't just hate it,

    I can't process it like most people. My blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature go up, I feel a buzzing in my head. And I just want to lash back out.

    I hate being yelled at

    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 😔

    Being Wrong Or Failure?

    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.

    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 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.

    it just makes me sad.

    exspecially when my mom or dad does it. Not only it gives me the feeling that I'm in trouble maybe it is just so hard. It makes me feel like they don't like me. I know they do but it still feels that why sometimes

    I don't know exactly what it is about being yelled at, but I get such high anxiety when it happens. And if my bf and I are in the car and he yells at a driver or something, he gets REALLY pissed (I do too) but he'll yell really loud and hurt my ears badly, and I just shut down...

    When I get yelled at I don't get sad,

    I get angry. Especially when it's for no reason or for the smallest things. I don't know why but that's how I've been for a while.

    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... :(

    When I was young my parents often fought

    and my dad yelled at my brother and I... I can't really handle it when people yell at me and confrontations scare me even more now but I still stand my ground and fight for myself no matter how much my voice trembles or how shaken up my body gets.

    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 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...

    Scares the **** Out of Me!

    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...

    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 get really upset when someone yells at me.

    I get mad and tell them off, in which I sometimes cry during the process. I don't like people yelling at me (as I'm sure most people don't), it's really rude, and there's no reason for it.

    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...

    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...
