    Bottled Up

     In my life, I've always advocated that repression is a bad bad thing. It can make you do crazy stuff. Lately I've been gradually keeping more and more things to myself and I feel so angry with everything lately. I just feel like I need to get away from things and people.It...

    I've wondered for a long time

    if I am emotionally repressed to some degree. I feel as though I go through the motions of daily life, showing the emotions I am expected to show without (always) feeling it. You can tell when I truly find something amusing because I laugh really loud, otherwise it's an...

    Here we are in the midst of a group that in its very name admits to being full of emotionally repressed people.  So, yes, trying to talk about that just seems so counter-intuitive. I'm the kind of guy that has enough going on his head that I generally have no idea where...

    This life is tiresome,

    boring, and predictable. People do not change, and it’s come to the point where I can look at a lot of people and see no difference in them and the person standing beside them. Everyone says the exact same things, day in and day out, thinking it’s a new exciting story when I...

    I refuse to acknowledge rare opportunities

    for love that have come because I'm afraid that my heart will hurt too much. I feel too much for everyone around me without love complicating things. I'm afraid I'll always be alone.
