    Holding It All Inside

    I don't know why communication is so difficult for me. And I hold everything inside. There are very few times when communication flows freely for me. I wish I knew the answers as to why I'm like this.

    I Can Say Too Much, Or Too Little...

    If I want to talk, I will. If there is an issue, and I am with someone I feel I can discuss it with, without them misconstruing every last thing I say, then I will talk until I've talked everything out, and it's all ok again. My problem is when I have an issue, like at work...

    When Communication Is A Problem.

    When I was growing up I felt mostly unheard. I remember keeping my emotions to myself and never had anyone to talk to about how I was feeling. Now I am an adult, I don't feel much has changed. I write though and that has helped me to at least have a release and to work out what I...

    Communication Is So Fricken Meaningful.

    Why is it so hard to say what you actually mean. What if its not saying the words, but understanding what is it you actually want to say in the first place, to be so cluless and lost that you don't actually know what you feel about a situation, or a person or anything in...

    I Can'T Stop Thinking About People Who Paid Me Attention

    This story is not exactly about falling in love , but it is close to it. My problem is that when I like some people and when I am lucky to talk to them at least for a while I can't stop thinking about them for the whole rest of the day. Sometimes longer. I can't concentrate, I...

    Communication Skills - Bad

    I have this problem too. Sometimes I just avoid some people for this reason, especially guys. Very often it looks creepy. One of my colleagues called me a snob once. I guess a lot of people consider me snobby. When I come to apply for a job I don't know what to say about myself...

    Honestly, I telling myself I am the friendly,

    kind person. But sometimes people can make me angry and I cannot forget them anymore. Anytime I saw them will remind how bad they did to me before and I just walk away from them.

    I can't find the words.

    I feel as if I'm in a box. Everyone can see the box while I'm trapped inside. I want to scream, I want to cry, I want people to notice my internal struggle. But they can't see. They can't help someone who isn't willing to open up their mind to them to help themselves. I'm...

    I Do It To Myself

    Whenever attempting communication with someone I love, I always go with whatever makes them happy. I sacrifice my own feelings just to see them smile and worry free. I don't know why I do this. Why can't I just be honest? I always put others feelings before my own and it's...
