    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 "

    People at school judge me

    for this. Yeah it's annoying, but I won't change who I am for the conformists.

    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. 💀

    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...

    As you know from my previous entry I'm emo.

    I am very very emotional. I have many emotional breakdowns too but when I'm alone. Sometimes I build up and it comes out in tears or anger or thoughts of suicide. I need help. My mom and Dad have no clue at all I cover it all up. I wear finger less gloves or long sleeves. So if...

    I honestly find it hilarious

    when people try to tell me this is just a phase. Well, a phase normally lasts 1-3 years and I've always liked the music and have been dressing like this since I was 8 soo when exactly does this "phase" as you call it end?

    I'm not really one to put labels on myself.

    .. But.. If we're bring honest here.. I do fit the emo stereotype and people don't hesitate to let me know that. But honestly... I don't care what they have to say. I'm me and that's it. ✌️

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
