    Some people say I'm a strong person.

    Sometimes I would like

    for my friends to be happy for me, instead of blowing off whatever I say. Usually, I just go with it and don't make it into a big deal. It upsets me though. I don't know…..maybe I just need to lower my expectations again.

    but lately it's getting harder and all of my friends are like you look like your gonna cry and they keep asking me what's wrong and when I say nothing ( which is usually a lie) there like 'I'm gonna find out what's wrong with u ' the walls I've been putting up since last year...

    I would say that I have a manipulative

    personality in some cases. So, that kind of allows me to put on an act and it allows me to hide my feelings from people whom I think would judge me. I have had on this façade for so long I don't know who I truly am anymore. Some of my female friends say that I am sweet guy but...

    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

    "How are you." I always reply with, "Fine."

    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 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.

    Nuff' said. Except not.

    I can smile, and laugh, and be completely happy. From the outside atleast, I look content at the worst. However that girl you see, is not a direct reflection of who I actually am. I hate who I am. I hate who I pretend to be. I feel like I'm not even human sometimes. Like I'm...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I grew up in a place where,

    you didn't really express what you felt especially if you were angry or felt injustice. So i bottled things up but eventually BOOM watch out because my temper- italian that it is- is explosive. The scottish side represses it but man if I lose patience- which is rare- watch out...

    as in general nobody knows when I'm upset/ depress etc… When I was suffering with depression I had to tell mum that I'm depress as she had no idea! My family never know how I'm feeling… they never ask! I'm very good at hiding my feelings because I smile automatically so I...

    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

    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...

    It's not fair how every other person in the

    world can seem to cry or get angry and get away with it, but when I did outwardly I got oppressed for it. So I just stopped, and the world kept going and I have all of this pure emotion just stacked up inside me and I'm scared of the day that my mask falls.

    You Don't Know Me

    We all have this jar, I like to think of it as. This jar can hold really anything. However, the jar isn't bottomless. Most people hide away secrets in the jar. Big secrets to little small secrets. Secrets are usually let go of or released. If not, usually it slips out on its own...

    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...
