    I can show when I'm angry upset

    or hurt but I have a difficult time going into any depth about my situations out of fear of being judged or rejected.

    So, tomorrow is my birthday

    and I'm beyond saddened by the fact that it's always been just another day to me. I haven't celebrated my birthday since I was a child. Last year my boyfriend and my bestfriend forgot it was my 21st birthday. Of course, I refuse to celebrate either of their birthdays with them...

    I want to know why, if anyone can tell me how I

    can better communicate with someone who isn't good at talking. I don't know how else to go about certain issues. All I get back is a blank stare like nobody is home upstairs. It's so frustrating. Idk how else to handle the situation

    Not sure how to express my feelings at the

    moment or for the past period. A mix of needy feelings yet I don't need anyone and leave me alone feelings. A mix of love feelings but also with feelings of resentful .. weakness and strength .. and all kinds of contradictory feelings.. People are driving me crazy.

    Why aren't there any stories on here?? Boy, you other two DO have trouble expressing your feelings!  Strangers.  Everyone on here, for me, at least are strangers.  Thats good as far as I am concerned. I can't talk to people I know about how I really feel. ...

    Last Friday I left work

    for my lunch break and didn't come back. I'm still waiting to get lectures. I was just expressing how much I care about the company.

    so I'm 13 and new here on this app

    but I don't like expressing my feelings because I fear that the person won't like me any more. my mom doesn't know how I feel a lot of stuff has happened to me in my life. What should I do?

    this requires some amount of trust.

    a person has to prove to me they are genuinely concerned for me before I can give them more ammunition to use against me in the future.

    I am super quick to make guesses on people's

    wavelengths, emotions and inner motives but I refuse to get in touch with mine. Everytime I do, I go into a spiral of thought after thought after reflecting while thinking and feeling. You see how it's so hard to be me sometimes? When you see me around people and I feel...

    I lash out... or I am super quiet.

    As I would think, I am not made to express feelings.

    I'll make a joke while im crying about

    something im really hurt or scarred over. And I laugh because I crack myself up. It freaks people out sometimes and it's usually a way for me to laugh it off and move on from my depressing thoughts or not deal with worse thoughts, but sometimes I just do it randomly and it makes...

    I have alot of trust issues

    and it makes it harder for me to share my feelings. I have a fear of being attacked for sharing how I feel. Anyone in real life I've ever felt comfortable enough sharing anything with before was either just out for one thing... Or didn't know how to deal with it and just didn...
