    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...

    Wish I Was More Logical, Less Emotional

    My husband has this amazing ability to know exactly the right things to say, or the right way to act in any given situation. He is a very logical person, always quiet and taking in his surroundings. I am outgoing and emotional, and when something happens I am not able to think...

    Can't Stop Crying

    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...

    It Has Good And Bad

    I was born with half a brain. The side that controls logical thinking and motor skills has never existed while the side that controls emotional thinking and artistic abilities has always existed. If you look at x-rays of my brain to this day, even at 35 years of age, I have a...

    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...

    I Cry At The Worst Times!

    I absolutley hate the fact that I get so emotional and tear up when I'm extremely upset. For instance, when I get confronted by my boss at work who's a real *****, I would love to be strong and stick by my words and say exactly what I am feeling in a calm intelligent manner, but...

    Biting My Tongue

    I am way too emotional for this modern world. You're not supposed to show your feelings, just bite your tongue, get over it and fake a smile! Easier said than done... Somehow I've learned a technique which allows me to hold back tears for couple minutes, but even then the sound...

    Emotion Is Good?

    Without emotion I wouldn't enjoy life as I do. But emotion hurts, anger, frustration, sadness, grief. But I'd rather hurt than be numb.

    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 kind of lost the ability to show feelings...I only cry when I'm alone...With other people it's always the same fake smile and 'I'm ok'. When I used to be able to show my emotions it made me more vulnerable...so i suppose it's a good thing. But it gets really bad when I'm alone...

    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 hate myself when I'm overly emotional. Whenever I have sleepovers with my friends and they fall asleep before I do, I start crying because I feel so lonely. The thing is... I also LIKE being alone. I'm so unstable and I hate it

    I'm too emotional. I feel things too much, too deeply, I need too much time to cope. But I very rarely cry. I'm in control though it's chaos inside. I don't know. I have borderline personality traits, I think. I'm not dependent, but because I keep...
