Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 642 People

    Sometimes when people bring me down I can't help

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'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.

    Idk about everyone else

    but I was raised a certain way. It's not even that, it's also what I feel is right and wrong deep inside. I try to be and treat people a certain way and when I don't get the same respect back from loved ones and people close to me, I tend to shut them out. I get upset. I get...
