I make mistakes like the next person.
The next person may be too scared to admit that.
Sometimes they are obvious errors of common sense,with others they tend to be no more than unfortunate turns of events led by circumstances that can not be helped.
In either case I genuinely wish I weren't so harshly penalized for them by those who are supposed to "understand". 
 
It would appear everyone I know is allowed to have moments of unfiltered emotion where they express feelings without remorse because it is "NEEDED", for everyone, but the luxery is limited for few.
 
 They never feel the need to apologize or even feel a hint of remorse yet I am held accountable for it all.....
 
Over time their outbursts weigh heavy on my silence but I know I can't have a moment, I know what it would mean....that I am too sensitive or too fragile, Emotional and "extra"
 
.......my emotions are too much but apparently I can handle any amount of harsh words thrown my way and take it with a smile.
