I need some urgent advice, I'm too emotional for my own good, I'm too sensitive,and get hurt easily, or offended, dependin on the situation, there are days where I'm fine and any critisim i take well because i makes me improve myself, but lately when im tired, i feel depresses, and any little thing gets me down, and I keep the pain in so tight that when I'm alone, I break down into tears, Yes, Into tears, I feel that its effecting my health, I'm not eating properly, I'm tired all the time, I don't have the energy that I used to have and i'm only 23. I hate the work that i am doing,my older brother and I work together in business for 3years, and intially I thought it will be great,great opportunities, great money, yes the money is great, but emotionally, and physically I'm so so drained, I've come to a point where I hate it, and my life.

I know I sound stupid, but I dont know what to do about myself, I'm not the person that i used to be and I dont like the person that I've become.

Any advice, please help.

I started to exercise.I mean fitness,jogging,bike and the most important thing joined to self-defence course.after a year I started with a,I got so many punches and I hit guys and fought and every day I felt myself know,when you fight with somebody,you train yourself for a simmilar situation when you argue with somebody in public or anywhere...during the training you can scream,you can be can do so many things you usually don't .Today I feel much better.I don't panic anymore if I find myself in touchy I'm so strong now and hard as a rock and can't wait for a new training class and new fight.I feel myself confident as I never felt before.I don't know if my answer pleases you but I have an advice: try,you got nothing to lose except maybe a few kilos :) and be brave

If it makes you feel any better you are not alone. I am a very sensitive person as well and I feel most of the time it negatively effects my spin on life rather than a positive outlook. I have read a book lately that makes alot of sense it is called The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron. I'm not sure if it has helped as yet for me, because I am still insecure and emotional, but it might be what starts the process, I am hoping anyways...I'm tired of being this way.

Dazzerg agony auntFirst you have to cut yourself some slack. Self-hatred will only make you feel worse. Maybe things arebad right now but you have already pretty much stated this isnt the normal you so allow yourself to err a little and say 'i dont like this, fine, I am going to do something about it'. Rather than focus on the self-loathing, focus on your positive resolve to change what is wrong.

To be honest it seems to me you are possibly suffering from depression. Reading your post it is hard to tell the source of this and so I can't advise on that. Have you suffered a traumatic even recently? Are you working long hours at work? Obviously something has changed in your life to make you this way. Get to the bottom of that and then you can start working on turning things around. Hope that helps.
