I Cant Explain In Words How I Feel Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,511 People

    That is one thing I wish I could change about

    myself. I have tried to improve on this, but I still feel that I'm not very good at verbalizing how I feel at times. I need to improve on this because sometimes when I have issues with people, I do not know how to explain what problem I am having and just bottle up the issue...

    i reach out to touch the dream,

    only to feel the paper mache sky crumble. behind the dream is darkness. the void. the dream falls to dust and the night becons with outstretched arms. the dark comforts. memory of pain fades. self dissolves into randomness. the only place i belong. the empty dark. to...

    I feel all kinds of things.

    It's hard to feel so much at once and I never know exactly why or what is it that I am feeling. I have no idea why.

    Letting It All Out

    I am not very good with sharing my feeling, i find it hard to express how i am really feeling and when it comes out it never comes out how it is suppose to. But sometimes it just all builds up inside you and then you explode

    Feelings. Ugh. Am I angry?

    Or am I hurt? Am I maybe sad? Am I cranky? Crunk? Tetchy? Um... Yeah, no, feelings are way too complicated and trying to come up with words for how I feel at all times is probably more distracting than just tracing whatever the feeling is back to the source. Happy, joyful...

    I don't know what exactly triggered my

    depression. All I know is that it hovers over me and it's negatively impacting my life. Sometimes I feel lonely, sometimes I feel angry. Sometimes I feel like I want my life to end. Sometimes I don't feel anything at all; I'm numb. And I haven't a clue of what to do. No one can...

    When someone asks what's wrong,

    I say I'm fine, but I have those few friends that know when I'm lying. I want to tell them, but at the same time I don't. Even when I try to tell them, I don't know how to explain the pain in my heart. I hate crying, especially in front of people. It makes me feel so weak. My...

    Sometimes there just isn't the right words.

    Like how much I love babe. I try to find a new and better way to tell her how much I love her everday but nothing ever feels like enough. I mean she knows I love her. And I love her to pieces but there just isn't a strong enough word to tell her just how much I can't live...

    So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain. Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for...

    Most of the time, I would say.

    I feel too much and all of my feelings seem to conflict. So I say little. I wish I could organise my thoughts into neat and convenient little rows. I'm afraid I will never be able to. I'm secretly and deeply afraid I will feel this way forever. So much makes me happy. Why do I...

    How can one find words to express how one feels?

    I can't.. Not today. Mostly the words would flow and I'd write them to express what I was feeling, but today, nothing.. And how can i even try to word what i feel? Coz feelings and words are so different! Feelings are like blood in the arteries...sort of gushing, making you feel...

    I think for me the reason I can't explain how I

    feel is because I just don't know I can't understand how I feel sometimes and so when someone asks what's wrong I can't explain because I just don't know it's very frustrating :/

    My life its like 'Do what I say, not what I do'. I'm tired of telling people to be strong, to believe in their selves, to trust. And I'm nothing like that. I don't believe in myself, I'm trying to be strong all the time, I don't trust in myself, I feel like I'm bothering or...

    The Reason, at least partly

    I grew up in a house where children were to be seen, not heard. I was never allowed to have an opinion except what my parents told me and never able to express myself openly with anyone except my sister. Thank goodness for her but the damage is done.  Most of the time, I'd...

    Sometimes you arrive at

    that moment where even face to face communication comes of no use to express your feelings to the other person. You would literally wish that somehow if some wire was connected from your brain to the receiver's brain so that he could go through your exact state of mind and can...

    Yeah that's actually really normal

    for me. I hair can't find words to explain how I feel. Either because I have mixed feelings and emotions or I feel emotions that don't have a name so that can't be said with words.

    I cannot, and it is beyond frustrating.

    How can I expect others to understand when I cannot convey how I am feeling? This inability makes me just want to yell until I cannot even make a sound anymore.
