    Maybe I'm Just Being Selfish

    I used to have one person I trusted the most that I told all my problems. My other friends actually ask me to talk to them sometimes, but I never take them up on their offer. I guess my logic was, "why expand all the unhappiness?" If I could burden just one person with my...

    Keep to Myself

    All my friends know me as the one who helps everyone with their problems.  I love being able to make a difference in other peoples lives, but when it comes to me, i can't find the way to say that i need help with mine.  I feel like people have enough of their own...

    No Longer

    I find that one of the interesting things about EP (and there are many) is that I can see changes within myself by looking at my past experiences and stories. I'm sure that when I added this experience that it was true, that I never really told anyone my problems. I do now...

    An Idol Mind

    Alas, a place where I can convey a problem, and no one will listen. I usually tell no one that is. I don't tell Anyone though. Today this is for anyone.  My mind has been drifting since maybe last summer. I can't put my finger on why but I have my theories. Here's one...

    Not One Person Know Everything About Me.

    If people knew how f**ked up i actually am, i know they would send me to a frickin mental asylum or something. I am scared of whet they will say. I can't even say my problems out loud. I would end up having a panic attack. I am so embarrassed of my problems, and i seriously don...

    I Just Don't Want People To Worry

    I try to be that friend that anyone can talk to and tell me about their problems. I'm able to keep a smile on my face... most of the time. When i'm asked if everything's okay, my automatic answer is "i'm fine, why?". Maybe it's also because i want to seem strong, but i never tell...

    I don't mind sharing some of my personal

    problems or putting them out there too much. But I don't like talking about them in detail. Maybe because it's embarrassing and don't want to be so open. I'd rather solve them in my own.

    " Cross My Heart And Hope To Die"

    "Can you keep a secret?"...."This is between me and you",  "Loose lips, sink ships"   These types of expressions litter the vast and wind torn landscape.  It is on this landscape I decided to build my belief system, work ethic, integrity.  I never really...

    I Do, But I Don't

    I tell my story, but I don't tell the most painful ones at the time they happen. I feel as if I look like a fool... I know I'm not, but deep down my head makes me feel as if I am!

    Im Just Another Teen

    Silence Is Easier Sometimes.

     I hate troubling people with my issues. It's like I'm putting this huge burden on them and they don't deserve to have that dropped on them. Most of the times I can just push the problems aside and deal with things as they are. I throw all my troubles backward into my...

    Feel Bad After Letting My Hart Out

    When I do tell personall feelings/problems to certain people (mother or friends), I feel bad afterwards. I like to talk about day to day problems and weird stuff, what anyone can experience. Just not my very personal stuff. Allthough I don't feel good about not sharing eather.I...

    What Do They Matter?

    They aren't worth telling. Other people have real problems. Mine sound like the rather pathetic whimpers of a coward. How could I possibly understand what pain is? I am ashamed of my weakness. My feelings are self-absorbed and contrived. Even to myself, I appear to be a fake...

    Quiet Problems

    Over all the years I've learnt to hold it all deep inside. I hate talking about myself, let alone my 'problems'. I don't want to bore anyone with that. I don't want to open up myself like that either - it's impossible. Even if I do open up to someone, there's little they can do...

    One Topic I Tend To Shy Away From

    I sometimes feel like I have let so many people down. I still think I exaggerate it in my head. I know it hurts them because they seem to reach out to me and I'm too afraid they will think less of me if I start going on and on about my problems. Even if it's someone who comes to...

    I never really tell anyone my problems

    so I'm not comfortable with posting them here for everyone to see. It seems to me like a weakness to tell my problems. Although I'm not fully comfortable with telling them I take risks from time to time and tell them to people that I know care about me and want to help.

    Im the type of person

    who will try and help as much people as i can. But will never help myself. I tell everyone to be strong and your not alone knowing that I'm the weakest and loneliest person in the world. So i hide it all inside and act like everything is all right. But i have as much problems...

    ..except on here. On here all I do is talk about my problems, which I guess is better than nothing, but maybe not. In person, the very thought of revealing the kinds of things that I reveal on here, even to close loved ones, makes me cringe. The debilitating embarrassment of...
