    I'm sad and depressed all the time

    but I act happy and completely fine. Sometimes I look sad, but people notice and I get happy again.

    Saying I'm ok or fine hiding everything in word

    that few people will ever really think twice about . We say we're fine so it means we are? Well that's all a big lie. When I say I'm ok and people believe it IM relieved they don't bother anymore but I'm hurt which adds to my pain.

    Have such a hard time letting people in of

    opening up that the automatic response to how are you is that I'm okay...it's almost like the knee jerk reaction to the question. ...even when I'm falling apart...I'm still okay

    I do this all the time.

    I kinda know why. Because I don't like feeling like I'm dumping my crap on to other people so I just listen to what they have going on in their lives, I'd rather help others than actually look and be reminded of all that's wrong with me

    Do you ever get the feeling

    that you don't want to message the people you love a lot cause you feel like you annoy them to much and no matter what you try and do your fighting with yourself wanting to message them..it's how I feel right now

    I'm pretty sure everyone fall victim to this;

    I do it because I don't believe my life

    problems should cause anyone grief. I should be the only one to suffer, not them. Even when I need the help, I have to be broken down to ask for it.

    who doesn't? lol. I've literally had someone

    ask how I'm doing, tell me they want the real answer, then dig around in their purse and start to talk over me when I take them at their word and start to tell them. lmfao. people, fascinating creatures.
