I Keep My Emotions Bottled Up

i know i should let my feelings out... but i CANT! 3,792 People

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Who would I tell? Who would listen?

    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...

    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 never tell anyone how I'm feeling

    because I just don't have anyone I feel I can talk to. And then it all comes crashing down on me and I become too emotional for my own good. Ugh.

    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.

    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.
