I Am An Emotional Individual

Anyone who just so happens to wear their emotions on their sleeve 104 People

    Emotional But Not Revealing

    I tend to be rather emotional. It's not always the greatest thing because it can get me very mixed up when trying to make the right decision. At the same time, people better understand what I feel and perhaps what I am trying to convey to them. I know that my Marine can tell that...
