I Hide My Feelings From Everyone

Only you know who you really are. You put on a mask for everybody else. 869 People

    i don't want to show how miserable I feel.

    just one person know my real feelings. i think expose myself will be the end. it's already hurtful like it is. don't want that be worst. I have to show strength, calm and equilibrium. that's the person everyone thinks I am, that's what I wanted to be, but it's not true.

    I thought that I did.

    my tell is my voice. I tell how I feel with my tone. I am not able to run from how I feel I just believed that I could. everyone around me knows. I am just the last one that I invite to the party. once I thought that if I hid from the way I felt just right that what I was...

    Well of course I do. Whenever they're remotely

    visible I'm considered fragile or to be over reacting. So I keep them to myself, they're mine after all. Whatever feelings I have left are simple and toned down. Used only to convince the world that I still have some. I've been called cold, stiff, and blank by people who I...

    I am socially awkward,

    shy and quiet, but the worse thing is that when I'm not alone and I'm with people I tend to act all happy and excited over the littlest things. No one truly knows me, they believe that the mask is my true self, guess I'm a good actor then, huh?

    I Think It's Easier

    it just seems easier to hide how i feel, i wasn't always this way and wore my emotions on my sleeve but it felt like people took advantage of that, or saw me as weak and bullied me, an loved that they could hurt me. earlier experiences have caused me to hide my feelings.  even...

    I honestly don't open up to many people,

    but when I do it's probably for two reasons. I trust you that much to listen to me without judging or criticizing me in what I have to say or I know that you're going through the same thing. It's easier to explain things to people if they can relate to it. It's harder trying to...

    I hide my feelings from everyone

    because I hardly open myself up to people and some of my feelings I don't think that some people would approve of but now I'm starting to show other people my feelings and frequently I think that's a good thing in my book.

    I can never truly express myself to someone.

    I'm just too afraid they might lash out at me for something. I just don't want to bother anyone with my worthless nonsense and burden them with it.

    that prefer to be all around happy but extremely sad in the inside. Don't get me wrong, when I vent I let everything go but I do it rarely and most think it's fake. For example, my boyfriend is leaving soon for deployment. We don't live in the same state because I went to school...

    Most of the time I think 'm always being hurt?

    I admire to hide my tears and trying to relate within the things around me even if it is so really hard? I'm trying to let go the happiness that I can but still, how my little smile can give more to hide the fear and tears, the sadness stays in my mind deeply.

    There are a couple of reasons.

    Mainly, a show of emotions is a weakness, and a sign of weakness. That's not necessarily a bad thing – the best way to engender trust is, after all, a show of vulnerability. Life is a dance of give and take. We manipulate each other – constantly, either consciously or...
