    Static. Joy comes with terror,

    walking hand in hand. Both smiling. One for the gift it brings, the other because you can't escape it. Trapped and drowning blissfully. Returning again and again for the miracle that squeezes the heart and soothes the soul. Reward or punishment? The dark and the light in...

    I have been very emotional this year

    and now I'm crying listening to a song and looking at a gif picture. Now my head is starting to hurt.

    I am too emotional, sentimental.

    That's not what young guys should be doing. I should be working my *** of and being productive, this is that time of life.

    I am very emotional. I feel deeply,

    and I'm not particulary good at masking my emotions. I don't mind it so much but there are two things about it that get under my skin: I don't like to look weak and self control is one area of strength I wish to grow. The second is then when others share with me, I search my...

    I Cry

    I  have read that crying releases toxins and  tension and tears contain a natural pain killer and that all makes sense to me. But we are said to be the only animals that cry emotional tears That I don't understand

    So emotionally invested,

    so much going on yet on the surface nothing is really happened or happening with you. Girls don't give out yourself to someone who doesn't deserve you.

    Maybe Too Emotional.

    I've always been very emotional and often wonder if its healthy to be this way. I can't help it or anything but sometimes I think my emotions get the best of me, like they control me in some sort. I have no middle ground with them. I'm either super emotional & sensitive or cold...

    And I think I gotta let go of this emotion in here. Sometimes, I feel like only a very few people like me. Why? Every time I have a seatmate, every recess, they go to other chairs. And sometimes, during class, nobody wants to seat beside me. :"( Only my BFF's. I'm happy I have...

    I cry all the time, and it's not because I'm a baby, it's just because that's a way I express things, I get mad easily, and mainly because people say stuff like "trust me. I understand you." But no. You don't understand me, I will never be understood, I'm beyond explanation...

    I Hate It!

    My emotional and sensitive side of me gets me crazy sometimes. I hate crying yet still do, I hate feeling blue yet the feeling takes up residence in my heart constantly. Man, I don't know, I guess it's better than turning to stone.
