    I Was Brought Up That Way

    My mother raised me to keep all my feelings and 'bad' emotions to myself. Sad? Keep it to yourself. Angry? Keep it to yourself. Someone put you down and you want to tell them that? Keep that to yourself too. Always act happy like there is nothing wrong, don't cause waves. Now...
