I am too sensitive and too emotional. I care about people too much and I have so much emotions that I cannot control.

I am a guy so I always get told to 'be a man' since most people expect men to be tough and confident. Never cry and positive all the time. Sadly, I don't have any of those qualities no more because my emotions took control of me and once I opened up about how I truly feel I was just bombarded with negative comments and got no support from anyone regarding anything related to myself.

I always feel like I care and love everyone else more than they do for me. I feel lonely that I can't find anyone who would feel like how I do or want me as much as I want them. No matter what I do, I always come back to this loneliness and it is draining my energy.

I just feel like I have to change so I can please others and I will never be happy no matter what I do..

Ok, first..CHANGE your name...you are NOT stupid. 😄 You are an intelligent, handsome, compassionate MAN.

Second, every day, remind yourself of that. You are an INDIVIDUAL. Be who you want; not whom others want. "To thine own self be true!"

Society thinks that you should be this, that, or the other. What about you? Who do you want to be?

Yes, you'll face opposition. Yes, people may disagree. Yes, you'll be disliked. In the end though, you'll have your self not to mention other people's respect.

I implore you to focus less on what people expect or want and more on what YOU want.

I love you brother. I'm here to encourage you every step of the way. 😄

I feel like I was reading something I wrote myself. I feel the same things you have mentioned. its so hard. no matter what you do or how you act it always seems to be the wrong choice.

There's nothing wrong with being a kind-hearted person, my thoughts on this are that you haven't found the right people to surround yourself with. You should learn to love yourself, and stop doubting! Eventually if you keep doing the things you love, and staying true to yourself, the right people will come into your life. Chin up! :)

We're on the same boat...

You seem like a kindhearted person since you care for others and become emotional with them :)

you don't need a lot of people to appreciate you for who you really are. you will find them once you learn to love yourself and focus on your strengths.
