I could make a nice, long list (I'm pretty touchy) but here are a few of the worst:
Gaslighting/being invalidated: being told what I really feel/experience (contrary to my own statements), or having my behaviors/preferences retconned, by somebody who can't possibly know because they aren't me.
My appearance/having my picture taken. I don't share photos (or do video or voice chat) basically ever.
"Everyone is beautiful", "you don't need a relationship to be happy", and other glib, projective nonsense.
For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?
I think I'm very sensitive about how other people feel when I am talking to them. I feel the need to keep them in their best mood..sometimes I even feel as though their feelings matter more than mine. Exhausting.
My appearance. Either when I don't reach my own standards or other people making negative comments. I've noticed a lot of times people make comments about your appearance, not from concern (because they may barely know you) but just to make conversation, which makes them a rude, uncreative and lazy conversationalist.
I used to be sensitive about people making comments about me being quiet / shy, but that rarely happens anymore for some reason. At least not to my face in this culture. And I've noticed as the comments on that petered out, so did my care for them. I don't think being quiet and shy is as overtly stigmatised in adulthood where I am right now. If the comments started increasing I'd be bothered again I guess.
I don't like people making comments about me looking anxious.
I also don't like people making jokes at my expense / teasing me in an unfair or mean way. I had a friend who used to do that and I basically dumped her because of that (and another super fcked up betrayal thing she did but that's not relevant here, because I don't think I was being sensitive about it, I was just reacting like a normal person would).
Most things I'm pretty ok with people joking around about, but my intelligence is a sensitive point. I try to overcome this by making jokes about it myself if I do something stupid, but I really wanna be thought of as more intelligent. Also anything I do related to my social anxiety I'm a bit sensitive to. I had someone repeatedly tease me for being a distance keeper and let me tell ya, did not make me feel good
I'm just a sensitive person over all. I don't like people who I hardly know getting too comfortable with me. since I'm quiet and I guess shy, some people in real life think they can take advantage of me but they're wrong. I have no problem speaking up when someone is trying to treat me like crap.
I also don't like people making jokes at my expense all the time. I can take a joke but there's a limit. No one wants to be a target on a daily basis.
Also, I hate when people (usually family members,in my case) feel like I should be more social.Just because they like to party/socialize and be the center of attention doesn't mean everyone else should or wants to be just like them. Why can't they understand that people are different and there's nothing wrong with being different. Posted via Mobile Device
