I Am Emo

    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 Am Emo

    I've been told I'm emo. Yes I know, quit telling me. My friends actually told he I'm a combination of emo, scene, punk, and goth, which surprisingly doesn't phase me. I actually accept the title. And it is true. Yes I cut. Yes I dye my hair, and wear lots of black, and listen to...

    I Am Emo.

    Hello fellow Emo friends. I am Emo, as you can see from the title. I cut, am Suicidal, and have tried Suicide 3 Times. I am very quiet and shy to others. I tend to keep to myself and my thoughts. Any in Massachusetts? Comment below :3

    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.

    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...

    Guess that's what my clique is called.

    Me and about 4 other people. My step - sisters also call me emo. I don't care being called emo, just gets annoying when someone uses it as an insult.

    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 think it's funny when people ask me

    if I'm Emo. And the truth is I'm not Emo or gothic. I'm just me. If you don't like it then blow me (in the metaphor reason of course)

    The first time my friends saw me out of my

    school uniform was at a Halloween party. I had jeans and a Ramones t-shirt under my costume. I took off my costume and went into the room they were in and they didn't recognize me.

    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...

    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 a joke or a style . Do they even feel what emos feel or do what they do? Do they suffer day by day? Get stabbed every day in the heart from the harsh words of ppl? Do they harm them selves daily ? And do they even try to help them ? NO ! They don't . So ppl just stop joking...

    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'm young so that means I'm impressionable

    and with the friends I hang around with, their emo attitude was bound to rub off on me. It has been hard this change to emohood as I have been to be getting picked on recently.
