    I Hate Having Feelings, Too

    They are never ever ever under any circumstances genuinely requited. I freely admit I am guilty of not returning someone's affection, too – which is how I know the problem isn't just me, it isn't my approach, it's just a fundamental truth about human relationships. They suck...

    So I told my best friend

    that I liked him and then things got screwed up and complicated. So I kinda lied to him and told him I was over him. And now he keeps telling about all the cute and adorable things he does with the guy he's talk to and I know it shouldn't bother me but it does. I want him to be...

    Feelingless World

    seriously? what is the deal of having a full range of feelings when it seems most feelings are "bad" feelings? Like right now I'm feeling bitter. I've been bitter now for a while. And I know its a "bad" thing but I don't care. It is so much better than the total and Utter sadness...

    I've never liked having feelings they make me

    very emotional and unstable. For some reason I have learned to shut them off. Whenever I don't want to feel something I go stone hearted. Which is sad. I've learned It is part of being human and I'm learning to open up more regardless of not liking them very much. I'm grateful...

    It gets in the way. I'm close to very few people, so it makes it even harder.....when someone whom you've grown to care for just stabs you in the back and just leaves you there to bleed. Whether it's a friend or a love interest, you can't deny the feeling, because as much as...

    Feelings Are So Petty

    I believe feelings are so archaic.  Why can't you turn them off?  Reason being, feelings can really get you into trouble.  If you know doing something is for the best why can't you just accept it and continue on?  Instead, your feelings have to kick in and...

    Disruptive, Dangerous...

    I'm very open about the fact that I hate having feelings.  I hate myself for having them. They make me too pliable, too wavering and open to manipulation. I've become a doormat because of my feelings, and if I could gouge a knife into my head/heart in order to cut them out...
