I Am Overly Sensitive Sometimes

There have been so many instances where something someone has said to me has made me very upset in private, even though I try my hardest not to show it. A lot of the time, it has been very small and I know that I'm being unreasonable in all probability, but I can't help it.

I also get emotional during movies/books/music and just have to cry. It's only bad when there are other people around, usually at movies, in which case, I have to hold it in and surreptitiously wipe the tears away - I hate people seeing me cry. I actually used to be really good and holding back tears, but I can't really do it any more. You'd think that as you get older, you get better at things like that.

my entired life i have been told that i am too sensitive and too emotional...<br />
everyone made me think something was wrong with me for FEELING...<br />
I now recognize it as actually caring about things.<br />
In a world where it seems as though most people do not care or feel anything except for themselves only...<br />
maybe they are actually too INsensitive and too UNemotional.<br />
glad to see there are other people like us somewhere...<br />
never be ashamed to have a heart and show it.

Thank you :) I suppose it is better than being incapable of showing any emotion at all.

I don't think you need to feel bad about not being able to control your tears. I used to be the way you were, too but I regard it now as being way too cold. Like I was slightly inhuman.<br />

Well, at least I won't look down on you or any other people for shedding a few tears!
