I Am More Emotional Than I Appear

is there more there than what you show on the surface? 518 People

    No Explanation Needed

    People see me as quiet, reserved, yet happy. I hide my feelings and emotions well. People never really know what emotion I am experiencing. I like it that way, too. I feel that this way they don't have to pity me or feel sorry for me. Nor feel the need to be nosy.

    I Give Up My Wishes And Feelings For Others!!!

    This is something that always happens with me. Till today whenever I had discussion or any debate with any one, I neglect my feelings and ignore what i have to say or how do I feel, letting the person win on the topic(only with loved ones). I never respect or give second though...

    Depression Done Alone Whilst Surrounded

    Maybe I deserve it. All the things I've done wrong in life? I deserve to do this alone in life. I'll surround myself with amazing people only to feel worse alone. I put on my happy fave, I make sues. Even before when I chose to do what I do alone I had a partner. Never did I feel...

    Hiding Emotions

    I seem to show signs of stress and feelings of being overwhelmed. But I tend to hide my feelings of sadness and loneliness. I mask it with a smile and just move on. I try to not show my sadness by helping others. I distract myself with schoolwork, being around others, and just...

    sometimes (most of the time) I appear as some kind of rock. But sometimes I also start crying about the most stupid things.. so I don't know.. guess it depends on my over-all-mood

    I Don't Want You To See It

    The reason is mainly that I'm naturally closed, and also very sensitive. And every time I open myself to others, they manipulate my feelings and emotions and hurt me. Plus I'm raised with the thought that showing emotions is a sign of weakness. It's hard to put up a strong front...

    On the Surface of the Sun

    I read some where that light can be both particle and wave but not at the same time. Well I can not be both rational and emotional at the same time so I choose to be rational on surface but deep down inside I am crying.

    Idiocy ...

    We can never be sure how we appear to world. To some people, the opinion of others is of fundamental importance to their well-being.  I don't believe that's true for me, although I do want to be liked and accepted, but within reason ... there are things on which I would...

    I Tend To Block Things Out In Front Of Other People....

    I guess I don't like people seeing me emotional and upset. I can think of several examples really. The first was when my close friend got arrested and due to the nature of the crime, I cut contact with him. I told my co worker through text and she mentioned it in work and I went...

    Sometimes I think I give the impression that I am very together and unemotional.  It's not an image I particularly cultivate at all, but I do have quite a solid persona in real life and those who know me consider me very strong and steady.  I am strong ... that's not a...

    6 Years of Tears

    I'm more emotional then I appear and often more emotional then I care to be. After being with someone for the first time in 6 years, I cried 6 years of tears in about 15-20 mins. I don't recall a time in recent memory when I felt that emotional, that vulnerable. Even as she wings...
