I am probably the most emotional person on this earth, no joke. When I was younger, I used to get upset so easily by anything. Someone would look at me the wrong way and I'd start crying. I toughened up a bit when I turned 16 but then my first boyfriend broke up with me out of nowhere when I was 20 and ever since then I can't help but get emotional over everything.
I'm always either laughing or crying. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I can't help but get attached to people. I had a guy cancel on our second date and I cried for the entire night in my room even though I don't even know this guy and I really shouldn't care that he cancelled because he's obviously not worth my time anyway.
I also care way too much about everyone around me and I can't help but feel hurt when these people don't care as much back. I know it's so stupid but I really can't help it. Is there a way I can toughen myself up? I'm tired of being like this :(

"I can't help but feel hurt when these people don't care as much back."
There's your problem. I'd like to get together with a woman like you describe yourself, but avoid those who wouldn't and do not care about you please. There's nothing wrong with you, don't try to persuade yourself this.1

I think it's mostly a good thing, the world needs more compassionate people. With situations like the second date thing try to think about how it's his loss and it just wasn't meant to be. Maybe try not to dwell on thoughts that make you feel upset but distract yourself like go for a run instead of dwelling on why he cancelled or feeling upset.1
