I am sensitive. I take things personally. If someone dislikes me, it bothers me. If someone gives me criticism, I instantly become upset. If someone yells at me, I have to fight back tears.
Sometimes, I wish I had a better control over my emotions. I wish I didn’t give a fuck about what other people had to say because my insecurities have grown uncontrollable.
Even though my sensitivity gets in the way from time to time, it also makes me a better person.
I am respectful. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings because I wouldn’t want them to hurt mine. I am cautious about the tone I use. I remain polite, whether I am talking to my boss or a cashier or a complete stranger on the street. I think through my words before letting them leave my lips. I never want to make anyone feel bad about themselves. I want to uplift them instead.
I am sentimental. I collect ticket stubs from movie theaters. I screenshot cute conversations. I save photos. When someone means the world to me, I preserve our memories, because I never want to forget how happy we were for that snapshot in time.
I am loyal. I grow attached easily. I develop deep connections with people. I am not the kind of woman who has a million friends, but the ones I do have are close. I would do anything for them and they would do anything for me.
I am perceptive. I am a people watcher. I examine body language. I pay close attention to personalities. I remember little things people say and notice when they are lying. I am observant enough to tell when you actually are fine and when you are only pretending to be.
I am understanding. I am open-minded. I am forgiving. I will see situations from every point of view. I will stop myself whenever I feel like I am growing judgmental. I will listen to what you have to say without making faces. I will hear you out before I jump in with my own opinion.
I am reliable. I am dependable. I will be there whenever you need me. I will never let you down or disappoint you. If you whisper a secret into my ear, I will keep it. If you trust me with your heart, I will make sure you never regret it.
I am strong. I have trouble dealing with change, but I have gone through a lot of them. I hate leaving my comfort zone, but I push through every time I am challenged. I have accomplished a million things I never thought I would be able to do. I have surprised even myself.
If you are looking for an unemotional girlfriend who is never going to cause any drama, then I am not the one for you — but if you are looking for a soft hearted girlfriend who loves intensely and tries her best every damn day, then you are in the right place.
