Humans are snowflakes. Not in our sensitivity to the imaginary concepts of society at large, instead in their varying resistance to outside physical stimulants. Sensations of comfort for some can feel like nails on a chalkboard for others.


Reddit user, u/Charlleshenry, wanted to hear the worst sensations you can imagine that really shouldn't be when they asked:

What is a sensation that you can't stand, even though it's not painful ?

I DON'T Want To Laugh, But...

Being tickled. I'm thinking itching is second.

The worst part is you can't tell people IRL that you hate being tickled because literally everyone takes that as an invitation to tickle you. People are d-cks sometimes.

Cotton Is The Worst

Dry hands or feet touching anything that's cottony

ProudYeti

Just the thought of pinching a cotton ball induces a physical cringing response in my body.

Sticky hands. Especially between fingers.

You Try So Hard To Stop It From Happening

Wet cloth at the wrists, like when you wash your face in the morning but water drips down your arm and wets your sleeve a bit.

This is the truth. And the anxiety of washing dishes and watching your sleeve slowly slide down. Then you have to either stick your arm in the air and shimmy the sleeve back down, or stop everything to dry your hands to push the sleeve back up.

Lodged In Like A Nail

When you get a popcorn kernel stuck in between your teeth and you can't for the life of you get it out.

Or spot-welded to the back of your tongue.

Sticking your arm down a sink of dirty dishwater to pull out the plug.

Heat On Heat

When it's a hot day - my exposed arm (humerus ish area) touching someone else's

It happens a lot on hot London transport in summer and I HATE the sensation of the clammy skin sticking together - but just that area, anywhere else I can pretty much let it slide

Uncomfortable All The Time

Giphy

Laying down on one side for too long.

I'm constantly rolling over from one side to the other because of how uncomfortable I feel. Not painful at all, because I'm in a resting, sedentary position.

Al...Most...There...

When you need to stretch but you can't stretch far enough.

Additionally, when you yawn and it doesn't feel like you yawned hard enough

Like Brushing A Cactus

My dry a-- hands on microfiber towels.

pumpkinspicebooty

I have a blanket that I use on the couch when I'm watching TV. One side is velour and the other side is fleece. My feet are rough even though I try to keep them smooth. Sometimes my rough feet get caught on the fleece and it feels so damned strange. I do it on purpose sometimes just to do it.

What can you not stand that really shouldn't be that bad? Let us know!

Our parents can really be difficult sometimes. But sometimes they cross the line from difficult into "bad person."

Now we have to understand our parents are human, and they're flawed, blah blah blah. But there are times that they really only put themselves first, and those times can really be damaging to our psyches as children.

It's okay to have weird feelings about your parents. They have to earn your respect, just like any other human on earth.

The End of Times Is Real....

It's always in the back of our mind, or maybe the forefront. You know you've watched "Deep Impact and Armageddon" and thought.... that crap could happen, and of course we cast ourselves as Bruce Willis or Ben Affleck or Morgan Freeman. We're always left with the thought of how possible is an Apocalypse. Especially in this day and age of climate change and pollution. Every second feels like we're just another step closer.

Redditor u/Aeiexgjhyoun_III wanted to everyone to ponder the possibility of the end of times by asking.... What's an actual, scientifically valid way an apocalypse could happen?

No body is alone in this.

These hit home for a lot of people. Unfortunately, the way we feel about our body affects how we interact with others. With too much focus on the physical in society, intimacy can be a challenge. Especially when we feel like we are always hiding a part of ourselves, literally.

The good news is as isolated as we might feel sometimes, no one is alone in our imperfections. We often exaggerate these 'secrets' in our minds and blow them way out of proportion. It turns out that most of the time, these embarrassing secrets don't matter to the people who care about you, and if they do, then these people shouldn't matter.

Redditor u/HalloumiBus asks:

What's the embarrassing secret about your body?
