    I Miss Talking to You - I Really Do

    I really miss talking to my friend, just about everyday things.  I write on here, and with this we keep up to date, but I do miss them. So - if you are reading this (which I am sure you aren't) - I come off as cold sometimes and do not allow...

    I wish some people new what I feel on the

    inside, even though I have a smile on my face that doesn't mean I'm happy on the inside..... Wish my family could see how I feel

    Absolutely This....

    I am known as the happy, smiley girl at work but that's so far from the truth. I HAVE to be this way as I work with kids and I also don't want others knowing how I truly feel as I don't trust them. I don't trust them enough to let them in. I feel I have so many secrets and pain...

    I hide everything behind a smile cause its safer

    than putting everything out there for people to use to there advantage. Iv seen first hand how someone can take advantage of someone elses issues & I dont plan on that happening to me

    Mastered Not To Cry

    i never tell anyone how I really feel. I mastered not to cry and hide those tears, like my heart is going to burst for hiding so much pain, grief, sorrow. And even if I want to cry, no tears are coming out.   I want to be strong for my family 'cause we are in the...

    And End Up Hurt and Sad

    Especially when it really matters,... later on I spend so much energy and time thinking about what I should have or could have said,... maybe it's a learned behaviour,... maybe I want to reach out and communicate on another level,... I'm fascinated with the non-verbal...

    Veil

    I wear a veil that hides my true emotions. I do it so well that I forget about them until they resurface and slap me in the face with reality.

    Bottled Up

    I always just bottle up my emotions. I still do but my friend has gotten me to open up some. I seem to just cry all the time now when I get home from school. I rarely used to cry honestly. I don't hide my feelings here or I try not to but its not easy...

    Dying Inside

    Every day I feel as if a little part of me dies. The darkness seems to close in on my life, and I have started cutting my skin to make sure that I can still feel. I put on a facade during the school day, but during the night I cry and feel as if something is tearing me apart...

    My Feelings

    I have always hid my feelings my whole life.  I never know how to express myself so I never have.  I had a weird childhood.  I come from a broken family although you probably wouldn't think it because no one in my family ever showed it...

    Ah, the wonderful smile.

    The simplest way to put on that mask, that facade. People don't look at your eyes if your smiling. They just assume there's no deeper feelings.

    I've been so open, I've shared

    so much, with you guys, and now, with my family and friends. But there is still so much that I can't ever let them know. So many secrets, lies, that would break their hearts even more.

    I would evade the questions,

    Don't Want People to Worry

    I know people who openly express how they are feeling to everyone and they constantly get attention. As much as I wish I'd get attention like that sometimes, most of the time I'm glad that I don't. The problem is that people don't leave you alone if you are constantly...

    Everyone tells me to fake it

    until you make it. Well I have been faking it for a few years and this smile I put on every day is still fake. Has this actually worked for anyone or should I just give up?

    I'm afraid to like. I'm afraid to love.

    I'm a complicated person and I can get attached. I don't like the feeling that you'll be here one minute but may be gone the next. Let's just stay friends.

    really feeling, but I'm afraid no one would care to know the truth. Or that telling someone won't change a thing.!

    I could be wrong but I think

    that showing your true feelings is a sign of weakness and people can hurt you more easily.

    I can hide how i'm feeling from others easily, but the problem is i also i hide my feelings from myself. It's really weired, it's like i block most of them out until someone says something that kinda brings down the block i guess. If i'm thinking a lot, that also brings it down...
