Default I am really not

I am really not a horrible person
I have trust issues
I’m a messed up empath
An HSP
Not a horrible person

If someone said they “love you at Christmas”

Would you think this person cared about you?

I wish I knew the “right” things to say

People mostly didn’t like me on pc (long ago) because I was so “quiet”

Or maybe most did like me. Yes, they did

But why does it matter so much to me...
Why does it matter being blamed and excluded for being me

Why does it matter if someone’s boyfriend irl is cruel to me
I don’t matter

I try to be true and AS IS
But I’m a “failure”

I’d been hurt too many times and I didn’t want to upset anyone with any words

But quiet or not I’m just Wrong

There was nothing wrong with being quiet and listening "Fuzzy".

Fuzzy I have a question: I do not understand exactly what an empath is or what they do. I googled 'what is an empath' and this is what the 1st result was :
Quote:
em·path
/ˈempaTH/
noun
(chiefly in science fiction) a person with the paranormal ability to apprehend the mental or emotional state of another individual.
Is that the real definition? I wasn't under the impression that empath was considered sci-fi but am I wrong?

YES.....we ALL did or at least ALL those I knew did.....you have ALWAYS been a wonderful & caring member we always liked A LOT!!!!

Some people are very free with using the term "love" honestly I think those some people don't even know what the term means & definitely don't know there are emotions that are a part of the word.....not just a word to be thrown around lightly. If actions do not match what a person says then they most likely never meant it in the first place.....just a personal experience observation

Well apparently"I Love You at Christmas" is a kids book about a stuffed animal looking on with sweet adoration as their owner follies through holiday preparation.

I'm thinking being told this was a sweet gesture of adoration?

I hadn’t heard of the book

I think the person in question wasn’t meaning it that way though
