    I Think We All Do. ...

    I think we all do. No matter what a brave front we put out to the world, inside we all feel some kind of emotion, either good or sad. Everyone will hide from what they are really feeling incase they hurt another. I wear my heart on my sleeve and wish sometimes I did not, as it...

    I Am So Weak....

    I have no friends left and no social life. The people I am fond of treat me badly and let me down. I need to stop being so weak and pathetic but sometimes I wonder what the point is. I am tired of being so strong and brave all the time. Of feeling like I have the weight of the...

    Thoughts Of The Meak

    I hate myself. Inside. Outside. All the way through. I've been a failure my whole life. At my age, that really isn't an option. It's like I can try something, something incredibly important to me, and, inevitably, I'll find some way to screw it up. I'm almost 30 and I've...

    I Am Intensely Emotional...

    ...and what I need to develop is mastery of these emotions. It wouldn't be wise for me to deny myself what I feel because that's how I am, but I understand that I need to have a better awareness of my emotions so I can respond better to them and in turn, make smarter...

    Strong Enough

    I joined this group in a moment I was feeling low. I was doubting myself, my feelings, my perceptions. Now I've taken time to reflect on my emotional strength. I realize I am strong enough. I'm strong enough to love. I'm strong enough to have compassion for others. I'm...

    If Not For You

    If not for you, there would be so little love; this part of me. If not for you, the skies above would not be blue or even have enough. I see the skies, I see your eyes. I see the curse all passing by. I'm staying here with you my dear. If not for you, there would be a bigger...

    Am I the only one who's at constant war with

    themselves? It's your brain against your heart. You want to be strong and stay happy, but you keep tempting yourself to go look at their profile to see if they miss you. News flash: they don't. They probably never will. You have to accept reality and you have to know that things...

    Always At A Disadvantage

    I've realised I become attached to people who are emotionally stronger than myself. Its fine if you need someone for emotional support and they are happy to give it but what happens when you feel like your emotional weakness leaves you at a constant disadvantage? This is how I...
