I Cannot Handle My Emotions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 52 People

    I bottle up my negativity in most cases usually

    because I am unable to let them out without regret, and loss of control.. Think of this for me it is a pressured volcano waiting to top it's cap, and when it does everything is burned away, and nothing seems to come back for days even weeks. The thing is is can be unbearable...

    Bottle

    I imagine my heart, my mind, as a bottle. All my thoughts and emotions are put in. The worse, the bigger. But I shove them in anyways. I don't know how to handle them, so I hide them away. Then, once in a while, my bottle cracks. It cracks and explodes. I break down,everything...

    Just Take 'em Away

    I've Broken A Lot Of Stuff.....

    Holy Moly

    Emotions are becoming too much to handle. I recently found my birth mother online and cannot reach her, I feel like I've hit a wall at 500mph. I don't know if I want to cry, or be happy... this is not a new feeling.

    I keep my emotions bottled because I feel that no one will understand or relate to how I feel. Also its stressful to talk to people about myself. #hatesmalltalk
