I Feel As If I Don't Know How to Feel

Do you ever feel like a dummy who just reacts emotionally since you feel you have to? 178 People

    I don't know if I can express my emotions the

    same way other people do. I'm afraid people might get the idea that I have none. What should I do?

    Ok, so there is this guy

    who is head over heals in love with me, but I dont connect with him on all the same levels that he does with me. Each day he pleads for me or hints that he wishes I was with him, but I just know that it would never work out. Whenever I talk to him about my day (or whatever the...

    I don't know if I should answer him "yes",

    because I don't know which is which, is it because I love him or pity him? I don't even know what should I feel about him right now.Seeing his vulnerable side, I really... I don't even know what's the word for it. I don't wanna hurt him nor lead him on anymore, I just wanna be...

    I think my girlfriend likes to seduce her dad.

    He compliments her allot. She wears no bra when we are going to be around him and really short skirts or shorts with no panties on. One day I even caught him staring at her when she bent over (her *** was all out). And in the kitchen I caught him rub his hand across the lower...

    When people ask how I'm doing,

    the genuine response I want to give is "I don't know." I'm considered successful to most people and am grateful for all I have, but I can't shake this emptiness. I don't want to be known as an "old soul." I crave for meaningful connections to people who are similar minded...

    It's inevitable... There comes a point in your

    life when you painfully realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore, and who always will. And in the end you learn who is FAKE who is just USING you, who is TRUE, and who would risk it all for you.

    I think logically, and the only real emotions i

    have are frustration and compassion. I get really frustrated when people are stupid, but I also worry about people when they're sad and I value the humblest people the most. Despite this simple outlook, sometimes i just don't feel at all. I can be a machine sometimes, spewing...

    Do you ever get that feeling like their is no

    point anymore? Everything is going wrong. You feel like you cant be happy. And if you do smile its just to keep how you really feel a secret. I feel like everything that could possibly go wrong has gone wrong. I feel depressed and drained. All at once. I wish i could just end it...

    Makes You Think....

    The phrase, "I feel as if I don't know how to feel" makes me think of the song, "I feel bad". (Rascal Flatts.) The only reason it makes me think of that song, is that there is a line in it that goes like this, "I feel bad that I don't...

    I'm feeling numb. I'm going through life atm

    without feeling a thing towards my husband (cheated on me) It's as if I'm going through the daily motions until we are able to separate. I do not feel anything towards him. Is anyone in the same place? Or has been??? Does this mean my marriage is really over?
