I’ll suck all your future offspring out and have you wondering if you’ll ever have a legacy.
Ridiculously, unimaginably, unreasonably sensitive. Sometimes I think that this is the main reason why we come off so emotionally devoid and tend to try to keep our outward responses separate from our emotional responses (aka “emotionally detached” I suppose); because if we showed what we were feeling I don’t think people would be inclined to take us seriously.
I know that personally I feel like a caricature of extremes, and I realize that my innate reaction to any stimulus is going to overwhelm or upset in some way or another anyone who might experience it, so I work very hard at appearing neutral most of the time. Inside I am literally constantly exploding with emotions, though.
