    I am stoic and overly strong to the point

    that my family and friends get mad at me. And others who aren't as strong as me **** me off. I need to often remind myself that there life's different and that everyone has different levels of strength but sometimes it just makes me disgusted with the pettiness and whininess.

    It Is a Rough Life

    I only say that being stoic is rough because non-stoics dont understand my demeanor.  "Are you mad?", "You look p*ssed" are the kind of responses I get on a daily basis. Just because I do not wear my emotions on my sleeve does not mean that I am mad. ...

    I Try

    Things sometimes cut me so deeply. Life has occasionally dealt me some ****** cards. But I try to remain calm, or at least keep a semblance of calm. Not only for my family, but for myself. It's not really suppression...It's more along the lines of acceptance. Sure, I hurt...

    I Think So....

    When I think about how hard things are and how empty my life feels, at least I can take pride in the fact that I am a strong and stoic person. I never feel strong but I must be to still be fighting on and going into work each day. Even if my heart feels crushed and I am doubting...
