I Keep My Emotions Bottled Up

i know i should let my feelings out... but i CANT! 4,624 People

    I need to stop reaching out

    for people who doesn't reach out for me. If I hear from them I called first or went to see them. If they call they want money. I am tired of being used over and over again. I have to accept the fact that No one cares about me so I neef to learn how to care about myself!

    I am annoyed when people judge me.

    I wish they would treat me with the respect I deserve. I mean I treat them with respect. why can't I get that in return? I can't do anything right and bow its going to come out soon.

    My boyfriend hates to hear what I have to say,

    he is so self absorbed. My other male friends love to hear every word that forms off my tongue. That's great but it would be better if the man I love cared to listen to me.

    My mom was in the hospital

    for three weeks, I had a bunch of home work due and then my dad stated yelling at me. I don't show when I'm stressed, especially then because I had to be there for my sisters and brothers, but that was the last straw. I came unglued, I yelled and screamed and said how I didn't...

    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.

    I find it really difficult to share my emotions.

    I've become so used to just putting a fake smile up that I can't tell people how I really feel: empty, lonely, cold and alone inside. the cuts on my arms are the only way I can feel in control

    seems i can't feel the good stuff anymore.

    the only way i can get myself to realize i m still alive is to feel pain. i keep hurting myself, but it s only because i lost what it was like to smile and mean it. i became transparant and slowly am vanishing. i hate going outside. i could stay home for weeks, i wouldn't mind...

    My mom says I'm too independent

    and I don't tell her about my life or my feelings. It's hard for me to tell people how I feel because they'd just look at me like I'm crazy. Even I don't understand my emotions. I've learnt to smile even when I'm crying inside and look cheerful when I'm empty inside. I talk to...

    I guess I just feel like there's

    so much going on, and that sharing it will just get dismissed as whining by my friends and family. I don't pity myself or anything like that, but it's just that some of the things I deal with are difficult to deal with on my own. I think one of the worst is the loneliness. I...

    immense desire to be that beloved spouse. The focus steals my positive energy. Some how I must quench this desire with something else before it destroys my most precious gift ~ life

    no one cares anyways.

    when you tell them how it is, they leave. then you're even more lonely and broken than you were before

    I don't know why I do.

    It's just so uncomfortable to me that I can't even talk about my feelings with the people closest to me. I guess it's just something that if you didn't do it when you were younger, you won't be doing it any time soon.

    Who would care? This is what I ask myself every time I think I should tell somebody my real feelings. Because no one wants to know why all they hear is the discrepancies. Cutter. Contemplating suicide. Depressed. Voices yelling at me in my own head. Numb. How could you hear a...

    and family about my friend because they wouldn't understand and I'm very private anyway. I'm wondering if I will eventually need to speak to a head shrinker. I think I'm heading in that direction. My thoughts might end up slowly driving me mad.
