    I Try To Hide It Mostly!

    I really don't like to show many emotions other than happiness. My personality is a bit addictive and reflective so I am charged with the task of staying as happy as I can always!

    I don't know how to express my feelings

    so I tend to just ignore them. Like when I do know I'm feeling upset, I pretend I'm fine.

    Misery Does Not Like Company....Or Does It?

    I tend to keep to myself when I'm upset. I so this for two reasons. 1. I love my friends. When they are upset, it upsets me. I tend to carry their pain with me somehow. I don't want them to feel my sadness. In this case, misery does not love company. I'd rather not drag anybody...

    I believe I was put here to help people,

    and to lead people to help. I don't believe I can do that if they see my weakness. I would rather suffer in agony in silence knowing that externally I am helping someone. I tel myself that little lie over and over again; I can handle this when I know others can't.

    I Just Keep It Inside...

    As it pertains to people knowing who I truly am (see my other story), I've always tried to maintain a calm, reserved exterior even when my insides are bubbling furiously. I don't like when people know that I am worked up or not calm or otherwise stressed as I don't like the...
