    I Have To Be The Strong One.

    Sometimes I just feel like I have to be there for everyone else.   I'm getting exhausted.  I have so much going on in my life and having everyone else unload on me....I can't keep my head above the water, they are dragging me under.  I don't know how to tell them that...

    Silence

    I don't like others to know the hurt I'm feeling inside. I am an extremely private person, when it comes to my feelings on particular subjects. EP gives me a sense of security in that way. I'm able to express my irritation and stress without the possibility of being judged by...

    I Learned To Suffer In Silence

    When I was young, I got brushed off by my parents all the time. Especially when it came to emotional things. So I dealt with them on my own. It was instilled in me from a very young age that I was burden, and I didn't want to burden anyone else further, so I kept things to myself...

    Thanks For The Site

    I'm very private. I don't open up to people when it comes to my feelings. I've always written them down in a diary or typed them up on my laptop. I don't let anybody see how much I'm suffering, hurting or just how angry i am. I hate to show signs of weakness to both family and...

    How I Suffered In Silence.

    Other than having silent cries in my bed.. I was so hurt. That I cried in showers. There was utterly no sound coming out. My mouth was wide opened, like how people cries out loud because they have sound to produce. But there was no sound that came out of it. I crouched down in...

    That's Usually Me

    I'm a shy person, non-confrontational, and really don't have a lot of self-esteem, so if someone wrongs me or if my partner flirts with another... usually I'll just keep my mouth shut, even though it hurts. I figure if they want someone else, there's not a whole hell of a lot I...

    Definitely This....

    When you look at me, you might see a bit of weariness in my eyes, a bit of exhaustion in my face, yet you'll almost never know why. I can put on a brave face, grin and bare the pain, but there are times where I will just express my emotions. I won't tell you my problems, I won't...
