    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...

    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 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...

    times but why does she have to yell at me for it? I didn't do anything wrong and at times yes i ask a lot of questions but it's only to make sure I don't make a mistake like your past boyfriends did. I don't think she even yelled once at her other boyfriends not like how much...

    I hate having someone raise their voice to.

    I hate it when I get yelled at especially when my boyfriend gets mad he will raise his voice sometimes. It makes me feel so tiny and small.

    well I don't let it change my temperament

    usually. I believe that yelling is an indication of weakness. I rarely yell back at a person. I don't even associate with people who yell when they're angry. nobody close to me does it. those who have... well, it's been followed up by me beating the **** out of them.

    I think the worst time

    for me was when my mum dragged me out into the garden by my hair one time so half the street could hear her screaming in my face. I prayed nobody from school who lived down that road would realise it was us. I hadn't even done much to warrant it, made a silly comment about not...

    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

    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.

    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 😔

    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.

    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...

    Bothers Me So Much!

    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 don't think anybody really enjoys being

    yelled at, but I particularly hate everything about it. First of all, it happens a lot in my house because my mother has a very short temper. My dad very rarely shouts, but mom completely covers the both of them. I don't know what to do when somebody is yelling at me. Should I...

    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.

    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... :(

    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 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...

    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.
