    that I am WAY too sensitive. I dunno it's just things get to me SO much and I just feel so **** because I can't help someone or stop something from happening. Even if it's not related to me, I feel bad not offering someone help if I see someone lugging a suitcase, I feel bad when I see someone trip I just wanna go over and make them laugh about it and not feel embarressed. I also have a WAY low self esteem, I'm confident but just don't think much of myself. Yet I act in a way which would purvey that I thought very highly of myself. I'm really not sure what I'm expecting in reply, but felt I should say stuff anyway.
    This might sound incredibly big headed, but I don't mean to be. I've also realised that I think nobody would be capable of loving me more than I loved them, pletonically or romantically and it's quite worrying and I don't know why. I'm not 100% sure what I mean I'm just very, VERY sensitive to almost everything around me which makes me well depressed but only internally, I don't let it affect my life but it does affect me if you understand?
    Again not sure what I want people to say but aye :tsr2: for the win ^^

    I think alot of us feel like this sometimes, I know I always feel like helping people when they seem to be having a problem or are down on their luck but something stops me 9/10 times, not sure what that is.

    As for the 'no-one could love me the way Id love them thing', have you ever been in a long term relationship? If not then I think theres a chance you could find that perspective changing, I use to think like that until I got with my current boyf, in the early days I was convinced I fancied him alot more than he did me but over time (18 months this month) Ive come to realise just how much he does love me and its on par with how much I love him,

    Well, you either act on your thoughts or you don't. If it comes to a point where you are over-thinking about something small, you have to tell yourself thats whats done is done. Controlling your own emotions is difficult, but if they are getting you down, you have to create a cut-off point where you think I don't want to think about this anymore. Also, externalise how you feel more, it makes you feel better and a lot of people will actually be interested

    It's not just about romantic love I mean any type of emotions towards people, I think I just find it so much easier to make bonds with someone without them making bonds with me. I even love the people I hate and that's why I hate them because they are doing something that's affecting them and blah. It's really hard to explain.

    it has something to do with having a greater (than normal) understanding of human nature?

    Allow going on the cross though, do you know how painful it would be, even without the previous chastising and stuff, all the blood not being allowed to travel to your arms etc, can do some seroius bad stuff.
    But no I don't think I'm Jesus and I don't think I have a greater understanding I think it's mostly becuase I just think that the world, life, humans, nature, it's all so beautifully orchestrated and so un-parralelly (sp? real word?) amazing and it deserves true admiration.

    I am really sensitive too I think; I used to go over stuff I said during the day to people and wonder whether they would take it the wrong way or be offended by it, even when it was just some random conversation. I just push it out my mind now, I've said it and can't take it back so I get on with it.
