    It is terrible being

    so sensitive. I am so sensitive that I start crying when I get told no, even if it is just because they don't have the item I want at the restaurant. Strangers instantly assume I'm spoiled rotten. I have been told no multiple times. It has gotten to the point I can't even ask...

    Just the other day I met up with an old friend.

    It had been years since I last saw her so I was pretty excited to catch up. Well it took a turn for the worse when some old wounds were ripped open. We started arguing about the subject and it just brought back so many negative feelings I have about myself. This particular...

    I'm a very sensitive person

    and at times get hurt easily. I've been hurt so many times before that I've noticed that I have created barriers that people need to tear down before they gain my trust. I sometimes wish I was a very strong individual that could hold back her tears. When a loved one says...

    I'm naive. I'm dumb. I'm young.

    I make stupid desions. I fall in love to easily. And I'm a pretty smart girl. But when a boy with a beautiful brain and smile walks into my life. A nightmare dressed like a daydream. I end up getting hurt.

    but wish that I was stronger and didn't let their words and actions impact me so much. I'm a sensitive person, and if you say something mean about me I start to feel self-conscious about that because I now know that somebody has noticed. I try everything for it to not get...

    One thing I've been taught

    after being forced into musicals was the ability to hide my emotions and put on a braver face. it's the only way I can get through the days lately by hiding it all since everyone tells me to shut up when I try to open up just a little bit.

    I hurt when I see you on you're phone

    because I know you're talking to girls, I hurt when you go out because I'm scared you're meeting the girls, I hurt when you're not sleeping next to me, I hurt when you say you don't love me, when our bond was so strong, I wish I was stronger because I wouldn't be where I am now...

    Wanting someone for you is what any could wish,

    mostly cause they've been hurt and go thru the pain and fear of going with someone for the fear of getting hurt again, I know I've been through it and I live through that fear, I don't wanna get hurt again, I just wish to find someone but it seems like a lost case for me but for...

    I don't think getting hurt easily is being weak.

    It is a sign of knowing yourself and what's important to you. Not getting hurt is not really a sign of strength either. Sometimes, people don't get hurt because they don't care. A strong person is one who is able to get up and face the world and his/her responsibilities IN...

    Sometimes I feel like I get overly upset with

    things that people have said to me without too much thought. I know I can't expect everyone to take extra care with what they say, think about how their words could affect their listener, always cautious of the outcome like I always do, but I have an extremely sensitive mother...
