I Get Too Overwhelmed By My Emotions When My Feelings Are Hurt

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 615 People

    I get too emotional and I hate it.

    . I guess it's because things have built up and are finally all coming out and it is damaging for the most part. Not sure how to handle it at all.

    I just wanted to talk to him.

    I was drunk. He ignored my calls. I called too many times. After everything we've been through... the horrible things... I thought I deserved to hear his voice. My anxiety drives my emotions and I hate it.

    Perhaps it's just me,

    but when my feelings get hurt, whether it's reasonable or me being weak and letting it happen, I feel this inner chill in my heart that passes really quick. Like frozen lightning.

    I only feel overwhelmed by family.

    Living with them isnt easy. but sometimes they make me feel small and very inferior and insecure of myself. Today is one of those days they make me want to run away from everything and everyone. Good thing im going to work and I have chocolate.
