I Wish I Was Strong And Didn't Get Hurt So Easily

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 894 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...

    I'm a very sensitive person

    I'm very sensitive. I'm very vulnerable.

    I get hurt all the time. Every little thing hurts me. I tend to overthink a lot. I wish I was mentally stronger. I'm emotionally messed up. I feel lonely most of the time. Every little things that happens makes me overthink to the point where I get really frustrated and cry...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
