does this make sense?

Can someone plz tell me if this makes sense? It's for an essay. Thx

One might say I can be sensitive with what other people say to me. When I sometimes hear something somebody tells me, I occasionally take it the wrong way than it was supposed to. This usually happens to someone if the person saying it doesn’t know the actual meaning of it, but the person receiving the comment does, even though the person making the statement didn’t mean to hurt the other person. If it was a simple statement, I sometimes the real meaning of it, even though it probably meant what it sounded like on the surface.

Thanks!!!

"Before I was put in a GATE class when I was younger, I felt that I wasn’t challenged enough as my peers were."

Do I make it sound like my peers felt like the class was easy like I did, or does it sound like they were more academically challenged than I was? Thanks!

When I sometimes hear something somebody tells me, I occasionally take it the wrong way than it was supposed to<~~delete "than ... to". This usually happens to someone if the person saying it<~~what is "it"? doesn’t know the actual meaning of it<~~what is "it"?, but the person receiving the comment does, even though the person making the statement didn’t mean to hurt the other person. If it<~~what is "it"? was a simple statement, I is there a verb mmissing here?? sometimes the real meaning of it, even though it<~~what is "it"? probably meant what it<~~what is "it"? sounded like on the surface.

Too many vague references here -- "it" and "someone" and "something" are not specific, and there's no guarantee that your meaning will be clear to whoever reads this.

"Before I was put in a GATE class when I was younger<~~this part is awkward; do you really need "when ... younger"?, I felt that I wasn’t as challenged as my peers were."



Thank you soooooooooooo much!!! I always have a problem with pronouns (those are pronouns, right?) and not putting in an antecedent. Thanks a bunch!!!
