I Become Silent When Sad

    It'S Better This Way

    Trust and believe that if I'm NOT silent when sad, angry, hurt? I will absolutely do irreparable damage with the words that come out of my mouth. So... if I'm being silent... if I'm "ignoring you"... thank your lucky stars and leave me be until I'm not in that state of mind...

    Hiding

    I think I must have been a cheerful and extrovert child somewhere in my very early childhood. I loved to play everywhere and always. Yet big clouds overshadowed my happiness. My parents were not a match made in heaven. They quarreled a lot. My dad suffered from tuberculosis and...

    My Way Of Coping

    I become silent when I am sad or when I am hurt in an emotional way. This has caused a lot of friction in my marriage especially in the years before. The one thing my husband never could stand is the silent treatment. I think it is like that because of my history and old habits...

    Not Accepted (Story 34)

    Sadness isn't one of those acceptable emotions. I hate feeling like I'm bringing other people down because they can't deal with it. I hate it even more when I'm told not to feel the way that I feel. I spare people from my sadness with silence and when possible I aim to be alone...

    Lost Inside Myself

    When im sad and depressed, its as if no amount of joy around me can change it. I'm currently feeling secluded and depressed, and of course I'm quiet. I feel like no one will want to listen to me, or even care to understand if I were to tell them, even then all they do is ask me...

    No Words

    Sometimes things hurt and you can't find the words to express yourself.  When I am sad, I become quiet.  I just don't speak.  I'm normally a private person but when I am sad you can feel the silence.

    Simply because I hide inside my head and think. Or just hide inside my head.
