I Don't Like People To Know When I Am Upset

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 280 People

    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!

    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...

    "Never let them see you bleed.

    " Hurt and pain: it's all weakness. And people never know how to react. Sure they can offer a hand once in a while but in real truth they don't want to be dragged down by your pain all the time. And all of a sudden, people don't know when you're upset and when you're not because...

    The Truth Is...

    ...there is no hiding! I can't stand it! I hate being upset. Everyone knows it! More than often I'm being abused because I'm upset about something. It's an anxiety and psychotic hell with real live demons! Anyways happy new day to you. :) *Wants to shoot the smiley*.

    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 don't know how to really express my

    feelings and I don't want to look weak, especially in front of people who look to me for help.

    It Causes Me More Pain

    to hold it in, but if I let it out then I know how they're going to feel and it scares me. but I'm angry, but I'm scared. It runs in my head all day. And I don't know how to release it. So I have learned to say " It upsets me when..." rather than "you upset me". And its changed...

    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...
