And I'm sorry it upsets you so much.

I'm sorry you find it stupid when a book or TV show or movie makes me cry. I'm sorry that it's ridiculous when I get upset because someone got angry at me. I'm sorry I get flustered and emotional, and I'm sorry I can't explain it better. I'm sorry I don't think rationally, and instead think emotionally.

I'm sorry you're better at pushing your feelings down and going about your life, when something as small as a breakup almost incapacitates me. I'm sorry I snap sometimes and yell, it's just better received than crying which is my first instinct.


I'm sorry I can't grow a thicker skin, or take personal insults in a more lighthearted way. I'm sorry you feel that you have to walk on eggshells around me. I don't want you to, I just want some understanding sometimes. You can be honest and blunt, but "this isn't that serious, you're overreacting" isn't honest or blunt. It's just mean. And it makes things worse.

I'm sorry I'm not stronger. I'm sorry I give people too many chances, and I'm sorry I hurt so much when people let me down, even though you told me they would and I should have expected it. I'm sorry I love too much, and smile too much, and get excited over little things too much, and cry too much. I'm sorry I can't always take a joke.

I'm sorry I'm not a better friend, girlfriend, daughter, or sister because I'm too sensitive. I'm sorry I can't change it. I've tried many times, and it never works. This is who I am, and I don't like it much, either. I wish I could make you understand, but you're logical and I'm not. You can't understand. You just think I'm wrong for feeling too much. Maybe you're right.
