    and my body I know people care but they do absolutely nothing, listening to music helps me escape my reality

    People say being emo is a choice

    but didn't they ask there selves "why would any one choose to be hurt and sad and lonely and getting hurt every single day and having to deal with the pain in their hearts every single second? " I say this to u ppl " THINK BEFORE U TALK "

    I'm the Real Thing

    I'm getting tired of many people saying "I'm Going To Be Emo!" First of all, you can't just say "I'm going to be emo." And then expect yourself to become emo in the span of one night. Emo isn't just a stlye of dressing, and it's not just a music style. Emo...

    I didn't think I was.

    Apparently I'm An Emo, Umm Okay.

    Just because I wear black, cut myself, wear lots of eyeliner and listen to bands such as black veil brides and A skylit, cover my face with my hair with lots of high lights doesn't make me emo right? I'm sure it takes a lot more than that, but hey call me whatever you want I'm...

    I don't really believe in the stereotypical

    terms like emo, goth, jock blah blah blah but I do end up getting classed as 'emo'. When people think of emo they think, a suicidal teen who cuts themselves all the time and think their lives are worse than everyone. I really don't believe that, no I won't deny that I do self...

    I'M Sick Of Having To Hide Behind A Shield Of Lies To Protect The Ones I Love And Care About From The Truth. If They Found Out, Then It Would Devastate Them.

    K, so first off, for those of you that don't know, being emo doesn't mean you have 8 thousand piercings or that you wear too much black makeup or that you wear a bunch or dark colored clothes with WAY too much jewelry and studded chokers with snake bites going through your bottom...

    alright. If you label YOURSELF

    as emo, you need to stop, and say to yourself, "I am not a twelve year old boy trying to pick up chicks". If you call yourself emo, and take it upon yourself to label yourself, and get made fun of/bullied, I honestly feel no sympathy for you. Labels are stupid. They're stupid...

    Black veil brides is an emotional escape

    for me. I don't look emo ( ish ) but sometimes I feel like it. I don't cut. There's really no point to me, personally. I'm just sorta starting out. 💀

    I Don't Like Labels, But...

    I didn't know what emo was until someone came up to me and said, "God, Leah, you're so emo all the time!!" I looked up the word and the definition described me perfectly. Right down to the music and the style. I feel comfortable with others who consider themselves "...

    I put myaelf down all the time.

    I hate my personality, my looks, and my behavior, and yet I am called mature, good looking, and funny. uhh, no... I am not. I hate myself and I hate everyone else. I am always bored and find no joy in anything. I may be a fun person, but I most certainly am never having fun...

    Im Young And Hurt Hurt. Age 12.

    I'm 12 and emo. Some people say that I'm being a follower, trying to be someone who I'm not. But they are wrong. I've been through a lot in my past. I was abused at 4. I've always had marks. Always in pain. My step-father was a monster. My mom found out one day about my abuse and...

    Hopefully uh all understand that

    if you say, "I'm emo" you're most likely a scene kid because emo isn't even a type of lifestyle. Emo is a genre of music, as for example, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boys are emo. Emo isn't short for emotional. Emo isn't anything but a genre of music. So basically...

    Pain is the only thing

    that will help me.I cut myself just to feel the pain.I hurt myself just to feel the pain. When I feel pain it makes me go crazy and insane and I start to hurt myself even more.
