    I want to express my emotions

    but I feel like there all bottled up inside of me so I hold in and I hate it when people tell me to let it out because I don't want to or either that I just break down

    I have alot of emotions.

    I hate telling them bc I think people get annoyed when I tell so I keep them bottled up. When I get home I scream into a pillow and I cry for hours. No one knows the real me

    One day I'll most likely blow up on someone

    and I hope it's not someone I care about.

    I just basically had an emotional overload in

    front of two of my friends. I had been here for a while and they had been together for a few hours before I even got there. They acted as if nothing changed. Eventually I got mad because I wanted to be involved and I wanted someone to care about me the way they care about each...

    Stoic

    I wasn't always like this. I was an extremely expressive person, in every way that I could be. I am a musician, an artist, and a writer. expression and emotions were my life's blood. There came a point in my life, however, where I had to shut down my emotions, deny myself...

    It's not just ANOTHER argument.

    I've not been telling him all that's been bothering me at home, from what my mom has to say to how my day was(which is just SUCKY, SUCKY, SUCKY). He doesn't even bother asking , all we could afford are the small talks and then him falling asleep even before I could call him. I...

    I don't like to tell people how I feel

    for some reason. Over text I kind of can but in person I'm just really bad at it so just in general I keep a lot inside of me

    You can say that I am the type of guy

    that is really sensitive. Things that people say and do effect me in deep ways. I find that I'm always struggling to hide the fact that I'm sensitive. But I can't hide it from myself.. I'm the type of guy who would rather be in a relationship with a beautiful girl instead of...

    I Try......

    I always bottle up my emotions. I don't cry at deaths, even if I want to. I don't show how I truly feel, even if I feel my hearts about to overflow. A few certain people have met my inner me. I know I can trust them, even if its hard to. Sometimes I just want to scream my...

    I keep my emotions bottled up inside

    because sometimes I feel know one will truly understand what it is that I feel but me. Sometimes it's nice to express yourself to someone, but how you truly feel will only be understood by you, and know one else will be able to truly relate.

    i let a few drops out but never enough, they think i'm fine but i'm not and i don't know how i can tell them. Like my bf, i want to tell him stuff but he knows a lot (not even half of it) already and he doesn't deserve to be burdened with all my problems, they are mine and mine...

    I am a person that people always hurt.

    I always think about, why I'm living. What is the purpose of my existence? I have become a person who can't stand to see others hurt, and it feels as though I absorb every mean thing people say to me and keep it bottled up. And doing that, makes me want to burst into tears, and...

    A lot of time I keep my emotions to myself, I know that it is not good, but honestly, I don't even see what the point of telling someone how you are feeling, becuase they usually don't truly understand, and I hate that. I just rather not tell anyone, and keep it to myself...

    when people message me saying

    that they're here for me & I can talk to them whenever, well, there's somthing your have to understand. it's hard for me to open up to people. I'm shy & awkward. & push everyone away. & I feel like I bother people when I tell them about my problems. that's just how I am.

    It's not like I don't WANT to tell anyone,

    because I do. I just don't know who to trust. All through life you find who your true friends are. Not just in middle school, or high school, or college. You cannot truly know for sure who cares or not. Or least I have not known that feeling. And maybe it's too soon to tell...

    I don't really do it intentionally

    but it happens regardless. I'm not a big fan of sharing feelings anyway no matter the type. But it usually comes to a head eventually and I have one big "blow up" then I'm good again for a while lol.

    I just don't know where I belong in life.

    It's a constant struggle to see where I'm gonna go and what I'm gonna do. It seems like sometimes I don't even know what I'm doing. All I want is to be successful. I need motivation and help with my decisions or really honestly I just need someone to talk to. Help help help.
