    I have scars. But most days,

    I have the courage to wear bright colors and seem happy. But others, I don't and people wonder what's wrong. I'm always gonna look like a prep. Even though I'm hurting deep inside and love the color black along with heavy metal. I'm just not cut out to be who I wanna be. I look...

    Hidden by sib232228 Why do we give up what's

    valuable to us because of our friends? The answer is simple friends are valuable. Friends and family are the most valuable things you can have in your Earthly life. Even if it means giving up who we like to keep them happy. Even if it means sacrificing your feelings for...

    My boyfriend broke up with me

    because my phone has a problem and he thinks it affects our relationship. Cause his friend said "if my boyfriend had a bad phone I would dump him" Mind you we have been together for a year I've never been emotionally abused as much as this before

    The Feelings With In Me

    Hiding Hurt

    Hiding your hurt only intensifies it. Problems grow in the dark and only become bigger and bigger, but when exposed to the light of truth, they shrink. You are only as sick as your secrets. So take off your mask, stop pretending, you’re perfect, walk into freedom.--Purpose...

    I am a clam, a sponge.

    I absorb and I don't show how heavy I find it. I hide in the shadows in my mind, and twinkle in the moonlight. I step out into the sun, but always I have my sunglasses!

    I just want to be important to someone,

    you know, to matter to them, to feel needed. Not wanted, wanted is a desire. I want to know, to feel, that if I suddenly disappeared, you would not be okay. That my presence in your life matters. I bet that feeling is nice.

    People say its not good to bottle up emotions

    but I don't care lol I do it anyway! When someone hurts me and I'm dying inside I still throw a smile on my face and no one knows if I'm hurting I call that a skill it's almost like a game of charades XD

    I'm emotionally divorced from my body.

    I have benefited from this "skill" on multiple occasions; however, some people think I'm heartless because of this. Which is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinions. I just saw this topic and I wanted to contribute /share.

    Hard Exterior, Soft & Cushy Inside

    Maybe I'm too good at hiding my feelings. I think half the time it's hiding, and half the time I just don't know how to express them or am too shy to express them fully. Consequently, I think many people think I have no feelings. In fact, I'm talking to an ex, now a friend, about...

    My sister is so open about her feelings

    and I just keep mine to myself feeling like a burden in people's lives. If I try to tell someone how I feel I usually get cut off by someone else. So I'm reluctant to share feelings with people unless I think they're good friends.

    sometimes it is the best idea to hide your

    feeling, this is because they're people in this world that will be quick to grab an opportunity to take advantage of thoughts who are emotionally weak, because they will know what makes that person crack; some will even be manipulative enough to gain control over that person

    I've always had a problem with being self

    conscious. I think being self conscious in small amounts is a good thing. But I'm at a point in my life where I've come to terms with things that made me depressed. Things that made me do things I'm ashamed of even thinking about to myself. My father has always been a tough love...

    I'm not a happy girl,

    infact I'm a very sad one. I walk around with scars and cuts under my clothes that not many people have ever seen and when they do they're disgusted with me and that makes me feel so much worse

    Not that I think this is a good thing.

    I guess because my parent used to hide her feelings all the time, I learned to do the same. Often, I'd rather hear the feelings of others and try to help them instead of saying my feelings. That and I've never really been very good at telling my feelings to others since they...

    People have literally gotten mad at me

    because I don't vocalize what's going on in my mind and it's nearly impossible to figure out what I'm thinking without me saying something. It's both a blessing and a curse.

    for anyone.. for real! Not even my (now ex-) best friend. Not my parents. No one! If Im sad, I'll either put on a big smile or try to avoid people that day. Which is hard since Im the 'happy girl' in class. I just can't talk about stuff with anyone, though a lot of people have...
