I Keep My Emotions Bottled Up

i know i should let my feelings out... but i CANT! 1,032 People

    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 Keep Them All In...

    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...

    Yep.... and I'm going to keep it

    that way. Unless you try to convince me that "The Wolverine" wasn't complete and utter hogwash :[.

    It may seem like I share a lot of my life

    and how I feel about things but in all honesty nobody's really seen any of my true emotions except for happiness.

    I keep going through highs

    and lows, unexpectedly. I don't tell people because I don't think they'll understand. I turn from being euphoric and happy to being depressed and lonely within days. I wish u had someone to talk to.

    It's Only Here I Can Let My Feelings Out....

    And I am so very grateful for that. I don't know what I would do without this site, it is a godsend. If anyone at work had to describe me, shy, caring, lovely, sweet would all probably come into the mix but so would happy. They would always say I have a smile on my face and that...

    Since My Parents Said Real Men Shouldn't Wear Their Heart On Their Sleeve.

    I'm genetically XY male, but doctor said I'm intersexual to an extent. Not the full-blown true hermaphrodite, but a mild case of partial androgen insensitivity syndrome. I have feminine features that most people would recognize me as a boyish girl at first glance. Internally I...

    One day I'll most likely blow up on someone

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

    I haven't let my emotions release

    for almost 2 years, I am in so much pain that I am about to have a mental breakdown, I don't even know how to describe how I feel, I'm just so damn depressed lately.

    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...

    It has worked for me.

    Then when i am ready to blow, i just go to the gym and convert all that energy into something productive. After that, bottle is all empty again. No harm done to anyone.

    Thats Just What I Was Taught

    i was taught not to rely on others ever that you can't trust people and its better to be out there for yourself and to never let anyone take the burden for you but to keep it all to yourself no matter how bad it gets. so thats why i have such an issue with saying how i really...

    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

    In person no emotions show

    but if your texting me then all emotions will spill out. I guess that's the bad part of being a writer. Cause now I try to text with caution otherwise people will show pity or give me bs advice. FML

    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 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...

    Guess it's part of being an introvert.

    .. I'm not one who particularly vents openly. I could be seething mad, but you wouldn't know the difference. Partly because I don't like letting just anyone know.

    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.

    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...

    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 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...
