A few people have suggested I might have clinical depression. Whether I do or I don't, the problem persists that I am too sensitive. I've wanted to kill myself since I was 9 years old because everything is too painful. The consequence of that is that when something bad happens, it REALLY hurts me. I already tried to kill myself. My family doesn't help. My stepdad especially like to tear people down. He thinks his comments are jokes, and sometimes they are funny, but often times it just lowers my selfesteem. I've told him to stop attacking me verbally, whether it's a joke or not, but now he just makes fun of that. And like I said, when bad things happen, like a breakup, my world collapses ... ironically, often for women that deep down I don't really care about! IT'S LIKE MY EMOTIONS AND REASONING DON'T MATCH. How do I stop being so sensitive?
