Does anyone find outside too loud sometimes?

Of just noise outside in general?

I don't live in a city so it's more quiet. Still, I got one part-time loud neighbor. I get to use earphones a lot. Sometimes, I notice I have them on, nothing playing, but I still leave them on. There is lots of lights and sounds outside in this modern society. There is barely any place withut artificial lights.
I like to be in silence at times and I'll agree that it is more rare to find it nowadays.

yeah I live on a busy main road too so leaving the house is a bit like this sometimes

I'm pretty sure I have sensory issues. I have a preference for low/warmly/candle lit areas too.

Neck is bleeding bad
The teeth have long departed
Yet the desire burns strong
On in desire for destruction
One on which she'll depend
One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end

Black through the mountains
She turns her loosening ring
Guardian angel sings
"I think you've lost your wings, but you're still yours
You're still yours, you're still yours"

I grew up & always lived in a quiet rural area, noise would not be my first choice.

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

YES! Noise in general, really. It has gotten worse over the years. I live in a noisy apartment with noisy neighbors on three sides. If it's real bad, it brings out a primal rage in me. I've been literally shouting in their face to shut the **** up on more than one occasion. SA considered, you get a feel for how bad it got. I was almost ready to slaughter the entire family next door Scared the crap out of me.

I've been scratching my head for many years about why I and a friend with similar issues have this sensitivity. I now suspect it is related to chronic overwhelm/misattunement at a very early age, due to which I haven't properly learned to regulate my emotions. It ties in with the very deep trauma that there is no space for me, nobody is there for me and the world is overwhelming. I wonder if this vibes with others.
