I'm well versed in the Law of Attraction, and right now I'm working hard on putting what I've learnt over the years into practice. My natural inclination is towards being over-emotional and casting myself as the 'victim' of life, but every day I'm making efforts to go against habit and instead appreciate and feel gratitude, and it's paying off in manifestations (albeit slowly).
What I'm mainly looking for, I guess, is a way to re-frame this thought of myself that I have - that I'm too emotional and hypersensitive at times (mostly around other people, which has made me want to withdraw into myself completely and be unsocial), and that I think things to death, making me neurotic about the smallest things. I need some way to sort of tackle this whole thing head-on rather than just feeling better bit by bit.
If it sounds vague, it's because I'm not 100% sure what I'm really asking, but any input is appreciated!
Here's a way to re-frame that thought....
Being hyper-sensitive is a blessing, not a curse :)
It means you can read vibrations at a subtler level than other "normal" people.
It means you can pick up on the vibrational direction of thoughts you are thinking long before they even get a chance to "get a hold" in your physical reality.
It also means that you on the verge (if you are not already there) of taking the next step and begin "reading vibration directly" (beyond emotional restrictions) which is an enormous benefit in everyday life.
The problem is not your hyper-sensitivity, it's what you are giving your attention to that is triggering it off earlier than most people.
As Abraham often imply, if you have your hand on a hot stove that is burning your flesh, wouldn't it be better to know earlier rather than later? :)
There is more information in: How can I develop "thick skin"? I feel that I am too sensitive, and it interferes with my objectivity.

A really good question! An issue I have lots of trouble with myself.
I got a lot of help on this subject from a book called The Four Agreements. It's very good for adjusting the way you look at life, if you're willing and have a desire to do so.
Ooh Ooh! I get to post the 4 agreements picture again... Here is a short summary of the four agreements if you're interested to get you started.
Imagine yourself as the emotionally balanced person you want to me. When you think a thought, you release a chemical reaction, which in turn affects the 100 trillion cells in your body to take action accordingly. You start to feel. How you feel affects what you think. It turns into a loop. When the body becomes the mind, you've developed a habit. In time -- in 30 days -- you will become this new person, this emotionally balanced person. It takes work.
Keep it up.
Keep visualizing yourself being the person you wish to be. You are who you are right now because you've been subconsciously incorporating these steps your whole life, influenced by those around you -- your environment. It's time for a new influence: Be conscious of where you are right now, of who you want to be. Do the work. Think. Make it a habit to always remember who you want to be. Live the new you in this moment. And always remember the Law of Attraction...that circumstances don't matter. Only your state of being matters.

i will say this: 1: know your self. 2:you have free will and are responsible of it.3: know others. 4: make your choice.
i know you will say this is to simple. if you think this it is because you do not know your self fully and you need to go deepper in your self to understand your though and emotion, your choice, and how other people fits in all of this.
also the best way to go deepper in one self is doing meditation with a pointed mind in awareness and concentration. if you do that you will gain insight of your self and will be able to remove the veils of the mind. i give you this link if you want to read about meditation i find it is a good one to describe it but i will stay with my own method that i have done has a child. http://swamij.com/witnessing.htm
has for being social or unsocial it is a duality and a label.
you might have your reason to be how you are. and you have free will like every one else. experience and enjoy.
I also used to think that being hyper sensitive was a curse that I tried for a number of years to get rid of. Picking up on all and saundry is no fun especialy in the beginning when you have no idea that you are picking up on others.
Sometimes I would be bothered by the most bizare thoughts that had nothing to do with my life only to get a call or bump into someone that would repeat those thoughts word for word. It was than that I realized OK some of this stuff going on in my mind is nothing to do with me. I have a feeling the same happens to you so be vigilent when others talk or if you hear something or see something if that wasnt in your thoughts for a while beforehand.
Needless to say what you resist persists so resisting is the wrong way to go for it will only get worse. Accept the fact that you have a gift and that it was given to you for a reason no matter how awful it makes you sometimes feel. You can learn to utilize this gift to help others as in healing for it is a great healers tool.
The important thing here is to learn how to swith off and that comes with time as you realize and observe yourself you will eventualy come to the conclusion that you dont have to feel others stuff unless you want to. The best help for me was to live in the moment and to keep all electrical or battery operated appliences out of the bedroom especialy cell phones, TV's, computers and such. If possible unplugg them and get EMF protection which does wonders. It is since theese gadgets become commonplace that people from all walks of life seem to be becoming psychick. Of course that isnt the only reason but it is a major issue. Wishing you peace of mind.
Being over-emotional and hypersensitive, in the way you describe it in your question, is an ego thing.
The ego is very fragile; show me someone who brags about everything they do, and I will show you someone who is deeply insecure about themselves.
There is a part of you in the center of your being, a white light of consciousness that is indestructible. You are part of God. Not the vengeful, hateful God of the Old Testament, but the compassionate, loving God of the New. Tap into that center, be more at one with it, and I think you will find that the fleeting words and actions of others will bother you less.
The best way that I can think of to tap into that center more fully is to be of service to others, and to give thanks and have gratitude for the abundance that surrounds us. Meditation also works.
