    So True

    I do it to not appear vulnerable. I know that hiding your emotions isn't a healthy response to them (most times) but it's so much simpler to be angry than to let people see how much pain I am in. It's also unquestionably a guy thing that I have been socialized into doing, at...

    I Always Feel Like a Bad Person

     When I get upset or hurt I let it out in anger. I've made my boyfriend cry before, but when he cries I stay dry eyed. I have a hard time crying infront of him or anyone because my biggest fear is finding out  that someone doesn't care that I'm hurt.

    Good At Hiding Pain

    I am very good at hiding my pain. I guess I got used to it my whole life that's why I sometimes think it is natural for me to hide it. But when I'm angry, nothing can stop me. I say things that I sometimes regret and I can't help it. Part of being impulsive again.

    Anger Sheilds the Pain

    For me anger and pian have become linked in a very specific way. I have been hurt many times in my life, sometimes from strangers and sometimes from friends and family. Because of this I often find it very hard to trust people, mostly because when I have shown a vulnerable side...

    Handcuffs

    I probably never should've put them on in the first place, i should have just yelled and hit things so it would have left. Instead, i cuffed my emotions to stay inside and never come out which led to years of rarely talking about what i had felt and all while i just let the anger...

    Anger Is Easier

    It's much easier for me to say when I'm angry or when I've been slighted. But when it gets into the issues of, Why did that make you sad? I usually have no idea how to answer. It just did. And so, in general, I try and keep my own little personal sadnesses to myself. Not to...

    I have always worn my emotions on my sleeves.

    I get angry so fast that it shocks me sometimes. I black out and before I know it I'm back and I'm looking at the person who made me angry. I don't mean black out as in passing out. I can feel and see myself going off but I can't hear or comprehend any of it. I don't understand...

    Usually

    Usually I do. I don't want people to know I am weak. On the outside people just think I'm a robot. Only time I show emotion is when I'm laughing or when I'm angry. It's only when I'm going through my manic phases that I show emotions and I don't care who sees. I have a very...
