    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

    I've always been the kind of person to bottle

    things up. I have never really had a close friend I could tell everything to. For all the people out there who may feel lost or just stressed your never alone. There is always someone else going through the same thing. I have learned how to let my feelings out. Sometimes I just...

    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 really do I've held

    so much hurt and sadness in me that when I lie and say I'm fine I start to cry on the inside because I can't say why I'm hurting

    I have a lot that people don't know.

    I hide a lot. People don't know what hurts me and what pleases me...most get it wrong. I bottle...so I explode. I'm exploding now...someone save me before it's too late

    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.

    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.

    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 keep everything in.

    ..but every once in a while, I'll let out a little scream for help. Please don't ignore it. That's my one change for someone to save me. If it goes unnoticed or ignored...I shut down and block everyone out again. These screams for help don't come often...so I'm asking...just...

    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 want to let it all out I really do.

    But I know that the moment I start, I won't be able to stop. I fall farther and farther with no one to catch me. I eventually hit the pavement, broken and alone. No one comes to ask if I need help getting up. I have to pick myself up at one point and walk all the way back up...

    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.

    Because I believe no one would listen around me,

    and the people who did listen are far away :( And even with a slight artistic bone, its just different having someone lend a good ear to you in dark times. Also, I think listening to me rant is a waste of time and might be a hassle to others lol
