    Cold

    I don't know why, but I've always been the mature, serious type. Even my mom says when I was like 5 I was pretty serious and quiet. I try not to, but most people see this as being cold and unfriendly. But I only act that way towards people I don't like or don't know. It's hard...

    I've been called a cold hearted ***** before.

    I can be, but I got a lot of love for the right people.

    Yeah, I come across as this cold-hearted,

    angry, mean girl at first, but once you get to know me, I'm quite the opposite. I've just been hurt in the past, so I put up walls. I actually seem to act very guarded and distant around people I don't like and don't know very well. They seem to get the wrong impression. They...

    Love Is What I Got Baby

    Yes it's true I come off as cold hearted but let me say that I'm far from that, if anything I have a lot of love and compassion for myself and for others. But I come first of course, the thing is that I just don't show it that well to you. But believe me when I say I have a whole...

    I act tough and emotionless wen deep down it's

    just a mask to cover up my sadness and grieve but sometimes I wish the mask became permanent, that I actually was emotionless. And I know I'm not the only one that's feels like this, or am I ?

    I Don't Know Why

    A Learned Behavior

    I have never wished to come off as cold or uncaring. I learned to hide my emotions when I was young. Hiding my emotions doesn't mean that I don't have them.I have been told that I come off as a angry, cold, and heartless. However, these things were said by people that spent very...

    I am really not a *****.

    I have feelings and emotions. I would never intentionally hurt a person. Nor am I left unmoved when someone is in pain. Stop judging and acting like you know who a random internet stranger actually is deep down. Because we are just that, strangers.
