Yeah, I’m Needy, So What?

    1. Thank you! I have heard the term “Highly Sensitive Person” but I wasn’t sure what it meant exactly. Sounds a lot like me, especially the high amount of empathy and the sensitivity to environmental factors. I always smell things before other people and sounds and lights bug me a lot. I am always asking my girlfriend to turn of the lights in the house and I snap at people for whistling or humming or tapping their feet, which makes me feel bad :(

      I think I’ll do more research on this, thanks again :)

      1. No problem! I have Misophonia too which is related. Mouth sounds drive me bonkers. The best thing I’ve learned about my “quirks” while helping my boys cope with theirs is that I’m not alone, and there’s a reason behind it.

        1. So I looked that up and I had no idea there was such a thing! I hate the sound of people cracking their knuckles, sneezing, coughing, humming, whistling, singing songs, and ” repetitive foot or body movements”. People rocking or moving their legs or feet repetitively around me, especially someone on a couch or bed with me, drives me crazy! I don’t know why but it makes me so angry I want to scream! Guilt about feeling that level of anger usually keeps me in check but if I can’t get away from the sound or movement or if the other person doesn’t stop I do snap….I didn’t even know there were other people who felt like that!

  1. I believe all of those things too. You are so right on with this. It’s scary to be “needy” in a world that often seems to take advantage of sensitive souls. But if we could all be as brave as you, our world would be a kinder, more gentle and safe place.
