    I can never express myself.

    pretty much any sad emotion I feel, I keep to myself...which has only messed with my head a bit.

    I'm slowly starting to keep things to myself.

    I like having secrets and not telling anybody. Half the time I just don't know what to say??

    I keep my thoughts & feelings inside,

    it's easier to keep them in than try to explain things when I don't understand them myself.

    I have someone I can turn too,

    but I just find it too hard, I don't even feel I can show her my writing anymore. I just feel that we are drifting apart no matter what, it's not the same anymore. Maybe that's my fault, when I'm the way I am now I think I can be very difficult to be around and I wouldn't blame...

    I graduated from high school two years ago

    and it felt like my life went crashing down sideways. I've always had problems with focusing in school because of my ADD and I've had issues with anxiety, but the few weeks I attended at community college I feel into a deep depression and my anxiety skyrocketed. I ended up being...

    Wishing I could unburden myself,

    release the excess weight I've been carrying for a thousand lives. I've seen trust dismantled before my eyes. And if I glance back into my past, the bombardment of pain and lies can be too much to fathom. Like the time I opened my heart, opened my legs, misguidedly believing I...

    I feel like I'm slowly losing the ability to

    properly communicate with friends and family. Even this account is unknown to any of them. I opened it to try to write and not feel judged, like some form of self therapy?....And it's like after what happened with my ex, all I've done is shut myself out somehow....Every day more...

    I make it seem like people think they know

    so much about me, but they only know the tip of the iceberg. I kind of want to keep it that way.

    It's kinda hard for me to talk about stuff.

    It never really seems like a big deal to just keep it in. I'm an introvert so it's not like a feel the need to release my thoughts to someone. However, sometimes I feel like I just get weighed down with the burden and eventually it crushes me and I just vent it all out. It's...

    Rant #1 How can you be a "little" OCD?

    HUH - is that like a lil pregnant? Why can't you just say - "hey, I'm a neatnik- don't touch my crap!" *sigh

    I really want to kill myself.

    My life is going on horribly. My mother has psychotic depression, she has been on an affair for 9 years & has just recently stopped after being diagnosed with psychotic depression, & we aren't the wealthiest family out there. My dad use to be a gambler. I'm labeled as stupid in...

    It is kinda expected.

    When a person asks how you are do they really expect the truth? Not really.. More of a "I'm good" response. People really don't want to know, so you keep it to yourself. How many secrets do we all hold? Infinite amounts.

    It's at the end of the day

    when I stop, pause, exhale - that the waves come crashing down over me and I feel the day that's passed seeping into me and at times I am drowning in my own life. It used to be that I cared too much and so I tried to turn my heart to stone to attempt to cope but I'm forgetting...

    Yep, sometimes i wanna say what's in my mind

    but i can't and i don't know why. Maybe i'm afraid of saying stupid things or what i say is stupid for the others. So, i like to post anything in here because nobody knows who i am.

    I actually hate keeping things to myself.

    Most of the time I want to tell everyone the truth about all the secrets I keep- depression, self-harm, etc.- because when I keep quiet about everything it builds up inside me until I'm on the verge of exploding. But I can't tell anyone any of it, because I need to be self...

    I do its an issue with me here I vent

    but people here in the real world don't know all the stuff I post. Here I can be open and honesty, Society that type of thinking is frowned on, So very few real people know me, The I still keep things to self its a pride thing I suppose.

    normally the best thing

    for me is not to speak to anyone about stuff....they either judge me or just give me crap about anything I say.....or they tell everyone ....that's why things r better kept to my self...and sometimes it sucks cause I don't know wat to do or how I should handle the situations :/

    there's nobody to rely on except yourself.

    Yeah maybe you want someone to listen to your woes, anguish,or whatever emotions you have; but at the end of the day you will be left alone. there maybe your family or friends but no matter what they advise you to do the decision will still be up to you. just my opinion.

    It makes me sad that I can open up to strangers

    easier than I can open up to the people who are close to me. With them, I keep everything inside.

    People have no idea. They might think

    that they know me, but they only know what I tell them. Even though they say I can vent, I try not to until it all comes spilling out, and even then it's not all of it. I keep a lot inside.

    There are many reasons

    that I keep things to myself. the #1 reason being that the majority of the world just doesn't give a ****. The few who do give a **** would leave me if I did tell them what I'm thinking. So there really is just no reason to talk. Unless spoken to. And then I say just enough...
