    Overly Sensitive

    I guess i just take things too personally at times like it is an attack on me personally. Even if it doesn't have anything to do with me directly. Like I work the Bingo canteen at the VFW sometimes and people will complain about the food that I do not even cook and I...

    Good Or Bad

    I am a very sincere person, I mean what I say and I just assume that other people do to. So when someone says something to me either good or bad I take it strait to heart.

    Everything To Heart

    All my life, I took everything to heart.  Also when someone said anything, I would believe them.  I still take things at heart, it all depends what it is of course.  Some I believe and take it to heart and some I don't.
