I Am Too Emotional

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 608 People

    Speaking From My Heart...

    I think I really should toughen up sometimes.  I deal with people out of love and respect.  Its often viewed as a weakness.  Sometimes people don't believe or value the honesty I present.  I can't live any other way.  I try to give more than I take...

    Tears Can Be Good

    I often times find myself just sitting someplace and crying over the littlest of things. Most of my friends think its funny but some get it. I guess I just have over active emotions haha. I'm very quick to anger, upset, or really invoke and emotion. But I'm very quick at being...

    My Step Dad Would Tell You That

     Because I get carried away either in the theater or movies when things are tense on stage I either laugh my fool head off or sob.  My step-dad made me sit several rows away so people wouldn't know we came in together.  He had a hard time showing his emotions, much...

    But I Rarily Show It

    I can talk about my past, my horrors, and my nightmares. I can speak of the injustice, the abuse, and the anger. I don't feel it though. I talk almost as if it happened to someone else.... But then when I'm done, alone, in the darkness, that is when the terror, the anger, and...

    I Have A Problem Controlling My Emotions Whenever A Fictional Character Dies

    I just don't understand it. Whenever I read or watch the tele and a character I like dies, I start crying like I lost a family member. My most recent episode happened when I read Transformers MTMTE #15. When Ultra Magnus died, I started crying nonstop. Then Rewind died and I...

    I Cant Help It!

    I cant help but cry. It's my release. Some people punch walls, others scream. But I just cry. When I'm furious, I cry. When I'm sad, I cry. When I'm sick and miserable, I cry. Sometimes it's a hell of a sob and sometimes it just feels good to let tears roll out. Maybe I'm...

    I Cry No Matter The Emotion I'm Feeling...

    It's really rather irritating how emotional I get from the stupidest things. I cry when I'm overly happy, sad, scared, annoyed, stressed, and so on. I mean, I've heard how it's important to just let your emotions go, and let it out. But, It actually prevents me from saying what I...

    I am always crying and my family and friends now take a joke out of this which makes me cry more. I just can't deal with my problems without crying. I think I have remained sane for a long time because I cry out all my worries and it just makes me feel better. If I didn't cry I'd...
