I Don't Always Say What I'm Feeling

    I have so many emotions right now.

    I've tried to talk to people but I can't because I feel like I'm being annoying. My mother reminded me of EP. She said she remembered how I said I felt when I gave people advice (because I truly love helping people and seeing smiles on their faces)... So that's why I'm here. I...

    At least I usually don't.

    Wish I did more often, but I tend to be pretty reserved. It's just how I am I guess.

    99% of the time I'll never say what I'm feeling.

    Mostly because i don't like explaining myself to people that don't care anyway.

    I've always just held on to my emotions to

    avoid confrontation or awkward conversation and its definitely backfired on me.

    I don't say what I feel

    because I know no one is actually interested, I also think that if I say what I feel people would stop talking to me because don't mean to sound big headed but I'm quite popular but because I can listen to how they feel and their problems but I keep mine trapped inside and...

    I'm completely in love with my best friend.

    I recently it told by her that I was like her brother, and she often tells me about boys. I don't know what to do. I can't tell her how I feel, and keeping it to myself is killing me.

    I usually don't, because I'm afraid.

    But I write down my feelings in letters, poems, or even songs, but I love you so much and you need to know that. You're my rock and no matter what, I want you. Even on days where I can't stand anyone. I could write more but I'm tired ):

    This happens all the time.

    I always keep my feelings hidden & eventually my cup of emotions end up overflowing big time.

    I learned to keep peace,

    keep my mouth shut. Exactly why I don't say what I feel.

    Lately I have developed this wonderful

    mechanism to avoid unnecessary confrontation: when one of my friends say something I completely disagree with ("that skirt coated 200euros but it was not expensive enough since I will wear it in my brother's wedding) I just nod my head, I say nothing at all! Why get in fights...

    On certain topics I do tend to bottle up my

    emotions and keep my mouth shut. But for the most part I'm pretty open...especially around people whom I'm comfortable with.

    I've kept quiet for so long,

    that its hard to say anything. I find it hard to express ANYTHING without music... I can't even cry anymore when it is appropriate or in front of people because of the people in my life

    I recently had sexual intercourse with someone

    i thought was a close friend. We've been friends for almost three years. After we had sex, he started acting differently, started talking to me differently. He's been very distant. I honestly think he only wanted to be my friend for only certain things. I feel so disappointed...

    Sometimes it isn't necessary

    or I just want to deal with it on my own. I'm not looking for attention. I just decided to keep it to myself.

    I am constantly horrified to tell anyone how I

    am feeling (especially my family) because they never seem to care in the end.

    Our hands touch lightly.

    Fleeting. A memory In the feeling that was us. How many hands have replaced mine? in the darkness of the night. the mornings filled with light. how many experiences have seen those brown, brown eyes as have seen the storm in mine. the menace that is untold, the killer that...

    It's Just the Way I Am

    I tend to not want to hurt people's feelings with what I'm thinking. I focus on coaching my words to not offend and miss the opportunity to tell people; I'm hurt or angry by their actions, I don't agree with their conclusions, or I just plain don't like what they said
