    Caring

    Well, I don't have a problem showing my emotions except one, Caring. I have a hard time showing that I care about people. It's not that I don't care, I just can't express that to them out loud. This has always been a conflict in romantic relationships with me. I get close to...

    Only When I Am Hurting...

    I have no issues displaying joy and love in my life...I do however tend to stuff the hurts.  Dont wish to burden others maybe....or perhaps a more selfish fear of the vulnerability...not entirely sure which.

    Not Something I Learned...

    Showing emotions wasn't something I ever learned to do...infact I made sure I didn't show emotions when I was a kid. I had to have complete control over myself...you can't control anything else but yourself right? For example. To me if someone else cried it was ok...I mean...

    My Poem It Burns.

    There is a face in the sky. And it looks like she is crying. And the water burns. The feelings away. To a new world. To a new day. Birds sing. As i cry. On the swing. And i look up to that face. I lift my arms. I fly away to a better day. As i am flying away I see my feelings sit...

    I Show Happy

    I don't have a hard time showing all emotions -- just any that aren't happy. I show people happy all the time, regardless of whether I am. I get impatient with people who can't push their feelings aside and just act happy when the situation demands it.
