    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...

    I refuse to acknowledge rare opportunities

    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...
