    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 can't help it, I always have always will.

    Until eventually I burst, I think I'm pretty much at that point (again) now. God, it's the worst feeling. With everything that's going on I just want to run. Away from this life. Away from everyone I've disappointed. I keep telling myself that I should talk to someone but when I...

    i dont like talking about my feelings to anyone.

    not because i want to be seen as tough its just because i get these looks when i do share my feelings. i tried obe time and never did it again. one, my family will go back and tell everyone and then the next family gathering i would be bombarded with questions.

    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 t may be unhealthy put it's the only way I

    feel better & protected. I feel like people don't understand me at all and when I do tell someone about my situation or how I feel it's always that one shithead that thinks pushing me will make me learn my lesson or make me better. pushing me won't get me anywhere sometimes...

    Because a majority of the time

    when I want to let someone know how I really feel, it's something that turns out to be deeply conflicted for me.

    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'm like a ticking grenade.

    . I hold things that can tear us apart and I'm on a timer.. I bottle my emotions up and then the grenade goes off.. Loose friends etc.. Then it restarts

    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...

    I always smile. I never get mad

    or cry around people. That's what they all see. But inside I'm sad. I want to cry but it just won't happen.

    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.

    I keep my emotions bottled

    because I feel that no one will understand or relate to how I feel. Also its stressful to talk to people about myself. #hatesmalltalk

    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...

    Even when he thinks it's been a great day

    together, little does he know when I go to take a shower, I cry over how bad I hurt. I hide my feelings from him only because I thought once we got back together again, everything would change for the better. Only he is happy.

    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.

    and my father can't listen to anyone, and i think that's probably why i hide my feelings. sometimes i want to tell him to listen but he's always to distant and i know how he is but i'm sure he doesn't know me at all. he has been through a lot in his life but he brings all the...

    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.

    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.

    This is mostly the reason

    why I'm suicidal. Well, lately, I've been so upset from what happened this year, but I had no friends to talk to just to let out all these "bad" emotions. Also, when I start thinking, sometimes they lead to a negative thought, and I mostly would agree with it, and sometimes it...
