I Rarely Share My Hurt With Others

    Hardly Ever...

    Its Hard to open up to people, and let them in, and trust them. I am just so scared, I don't know what it is, but its just something about opening myself to get hurt, that scares the **** out of me, so for that reason, I very rarely open up to people about my hurt. I feel like...

    Yeah, Me Too.

    I've always thought that the amount of anger a person has is equal to the amount of hurt a person has. I'm an angry guy, personally, but I try to keep that **** under control because it just propagates the pain (and IMHO, that doesn't really help).

    Healing Alone

    I should say I never share any deepest emotion with people. When my marriage broke down and I was cast away in a very seclude laid-back life, I closed all  doors  of communication and shut myself out from anyone. My friends contacted me on facebook when I resigned from my job...

    Selfless Act

    I prefer not to bring out a downer mood with someone by unloading on them. There is also this part of me that feels like I am leaving myself open for more pain if I expose my vulnerability again. I am also someone who cares more for the suffering of others than my own.

    Hear Me Scream, If You Dare

    I never liked leaning on people...thats how I drive them all away. I rarely complain, I rarely cry, I rarely call for help...its just not worth it. A lot of people know there are "problems" in my life, I mean, we all have them. You can easily see that from my experiences, from my...

    I Dont.

    Everyone that meets me always sees me with a smile on my face and in a good mood all the time. I joke and hold good conversations but extremly rarely do they see me suffer inside. Everyone thinks my life is way better than it really is. I dont like opening up to people I am not...
