I Am Emotionally Unavailable

Those who create barriers between themselves and others in an effort to avoid emotional intimacy 82 People

    I didn't know there was a term

    for the way I felt. I have just pushed the last "friend" I had away because they felt I didn't care for them like they cared for me. And they weren't wrong. I didn't. I can't. I don't know how to properly develop feelings for people. My relationships usually won't last because...

    I don't know why but I never want a relationship

    because I will be cheated on. But I want someone to love and look after. And feel something with. The men are always unavailable. I love them but don't tell them. We share eachother in body but never in mind Cannot snap out of this.

    Has anyone ever 'trained' their heart to not

    emotionally care? Blocking out heartache to the point of feeling absolutely no love, pain, guilt or anything that comes with love? One word for it, euphoric. But I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. I'm so emotionally damaged that I don't even know how to pick up the pieces that I...

    So.

    I'm never going to trust you which is what's going to keep me from loving you. I think most anything that comes out of the opposite sexes mouth is a lie because it normally is. It's much easier for me to be unavailable and never get hurt, than to allow feelings and risk that...

    After repeatedly being called stonefaced,

    made of iron, bulletproof, etc, I think it's clear I'm not a very emotional person. I'm not very empathetic. Justice, however, is very important to me.

    I thought I knew what I secretly,

    desperately wanted. Someone that would fight to get to me, push me and not be run over when I ran away. Someone who would pull stars down for me to play with on my bad nights. But maybe I just want to want that, because that's what I'm told I want. That I should want. That its...

    I suffer from depression

    for years. Some days are good, and then some are hard. I feel numb some days, I'm either mad, sad, or neutral: those are the only things i feel. I try to find happiness by surrounding myself with friends and family but it's not enough, I feel selfish for feeling these things...

    What Is This..

    There's nothing to me. Nothing to the rest of the world. Nobody means anything. Unless, I can think normally when I'm alone, then they might mean something. It's irritating. .. My parents don't mean anything to me on the inside, there's nothing. How does that make sense? Is this...

    I Am Eu Because I Have Trust Issues

    I tend to hold back emotionally because it is a trust thing.  I don't trust people, I don't want them to get close, and I hold back everything to keep them away.  It's easier to sever all emotional ties with someone when you are let down by them if you don't let them...

    I can't form connections with people.

    I try, but they always think I ignore them or don't care. I just can't form connections, I can't feel emotion. I spend all of my time isolated in my room and my parents get worried. I just like being alone and hidden away. What is even so bad about that?
