I Dont Like to Show Emotions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 850 People

    I was brought in a strong family.

    In fact I blame them for my lack of heart. I was taught that emotion is a sign of weakness. And I refused to be the weak link. I kept my head held high even when I was punished for it. If I was hurt I never showed it. My family is like a pack of wolves. Harsh. Hostile. Deadly...

    i feel like it makes me seem weak.

    i don't like trusting people and showing them how they can hurt you is a big risk for me. i still talk about them just in a chilled out way with someone like my twin sister.

    I always put my emotions behind a rock.

    When I'm with my friends, they never know I'm unhappy unless I show it. I can put a pretty good act on. The reason my feelings is because of judgement and I don't trust people easily.

    I Keep Them Locked Inside.

    Not to say that emotional people are weak (I don't think that at all), but I personally feel that showing my emotions would make me  seem weak. I don't care much of what people think of me, it is more to do with feeling and being vulnerable. There are very few people who I...

    I am not an emotions kind of person.

    I don't like emotions.In my opinion emotions r useless and painful.I am emotionally detached.I have been my whole life.But that doesn't mean I don't have interests and it also doesn't mean I don't want an emotional attachment.

    I play the strong one in life,

    i play the courageous one, and if i want to help others i have to be stone, and not let my emotions interfere with my goal. i feel like if im helping someone and i begin to cry the attention they need is now aimed towards me, and its unfair.

     I don't ever remember a time when I was good at showing my emotions.  I recall as a child being told to "stop" all the time.  It did not matter if it was crying or just being affectionate.  I can laugh, that's easy.  Crack a joke, say something...

    All my life I've bottled up my emotions.

    Through everything I've been through I still act like I'm fine. Little do people know I consider suicide everyday, I want to talk to people but no one really cares and I can't speak to family because I don't want to worry them. No one will probably read this either. I feel like...

    It's not that I don't feel emotions,

    it's that I feel them deeply and violently. If I am passionate about someone I will take her and make her mine. If I am angry I will be destructive to the cause of my anger. But no I keep these bottled up inside under the calm demeanor and facade.

    I have trouble with certain emotions.

    It is easier for me to show anger than sadness. When I do not want to show anger, I am just extremely quiet. I have always had alot of problems with other people. I am overly defensive. I am not the smartest person, but I hate to be treated as though I am stupid. This...

    I don't like anyone to see me

    when I'm sad or in my mind, weak. I don't like people to see me cry or to know how I'm feeling. Thus, to the world I'm happy; to my room I'm an emotional reck and I cut non-stop. But, I cut because I never allow myself to cry. How have I come this low?
