I Keep My Emotions Bottled Up

i know i should let my feelings out... but i CANT! 12,298 People

    I tend to keep my emotions bottled up

    so no-one can see how emotional I actually am but to some people who know this, they think I'm a ticking emotional time nuke waiting to go off.

    Its not that I don't feel,

    I just keep it all calm and stay strong, I was once ruled by my emotions, but now I can face anything with patience and sure that nothing will hurt me, unfurtunately some people see it as being cold or indifferent .

    depression creeps up on you quietly

    and you say that isn't just a bad day but it isn't.

    It's my last day. Preparing to say good bye to

    you, my lunch time eye candy. I see you between the pallets. Your stride caught my attention. Appreciating the genes that gave you the firmness of your *** cheeks. It's a pity wasting my time day dreaming... Wishing my alter ego can visit just as you glance over... There goes...

    I keep my emotions bottled up

    because I fear that after telling everything that person might just leave... coz we all have flaws other can't handle... its better to keep it towards yourself ......

    I'm afraid of speaking my true feelings to my

    family. I share some of my thoughts with my friends, but not all. I'm afraid they'll judge me more then they already probably are . I'm afraid of what everyone will think of me and that is my weakness.

    So the story goes as follows,

    to be honest I don't want to get with anyone else, but this one girl whom I still love. We met in an orphanage and we basically became a couple right off the bat (she initiated it since I'm shy). The reason I say basically is because back then we were kinda young, and it would...

    What does it mean to exist?

    I think therefore I am? I'm not asking "To be or not to be", as Shakespeare eloquently wrote it, I'm asking what does it mean to "be"? Everyday seems mundane, but at the same time extraordinary. Simple though complex. Callous yet tantalizing. For a while now, I've had this...

    Sometimes it feels like I'm just wandering

    around...completely lost...hoping for a beacon to give me some sort of direction. There's never any rhyme or reason as to which direction the light may come from...or the form it will take. I bask in the warmth and security of it. I cherish it while I have it because there is...

    and put on a play wishing someone would see behind the mask. but they never do so I fall and scream quietly pry for the day it will end. so I sleep hoping, prying , begging that ill not wake up tomorrow.

    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.

    I always keep my emotions bottled up

    because I feel like I have to be strong, but somtiems I can't be strong anymore. its hard for me because every time I try to talk about my feelings I feel like no one is listening to me. I feel like no one cares.

    because I don't know how the other person will react and I don't want to be a burden so I just keep them to my self

    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...

    Because that's how I've been raised.

    They enjoy throwing careless passive aggressive words at me like I have no feelings or something. It's okay, I'll just suck it up and keep quite. That's not the issue though. I don't blow up on people, I do it to myself. It makes me self-destructive. Even though I don't want...

    Any time I try, I choke up, can't breath right. The funny thing is, sometimes I wished someone would notice, but I know that won't come true. Everyone has there own problems, so I don't say anything at all. I would feel selfish if I did. However, all my emotions are bottled up...

    or someone not caring what I have to say. I just let it kill me inside. My husband forgot I was pregnant, and I didn't want him angry so... I lied to him.

    Ever have feelings like your people's doormat?

    Tonight the bottle got too full of emotions.

    As a result, it exploded while my girlfriend was trying to handle it delicately. That caused feelings to get hurt. Now, I feel like a complete *******. This is a reminder for why I need to stop doing this. It only hurts everyone close to me in the end.

    I find it difficult to tell anyone about them.

    It seems like an intimate thing to do, being that vulnerable does not sit well with me. And intimacy is something I absolutely dread. So I bottle them up, more out of habit than necessity.
