I Sometimes Can't Find My Emotions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 112 People

    They're Here Some Place

    I guess it goes along with the fact that I've had to hide from some of my emotions, many times.  After a while, you just seem to forget where they are.

    Excited?

    This past summer, as I was getting ready to fly out to California for the first time, I wasn't sure if I felt anything at all. I made a show about being excited every time someone asked, I packed weeks in advance.  But I'm still not sure what I was feeling, if anything. It...

    Emotions...not My Strong Point >__>

    I do not really have emotions or at least not many. Through life’s experiences I have learnt to cut them out and personally I feel emotions are not needed. I used to be so choked up with emotions as a child and I went through a terribly rough child hood with...

    Often....

    There was stage where I became so intense that I lost all feeling when I came out on the other side. I somewhat lost my conscience in certain issues; all ethics were suspended and I fear that some day they will overwhelm me within a tidal wave.  It is as I am putting them...

    I Really Dislike That....

    I do find at times that I just go numb to things. In many ways though, I find this is more uncomfortable and unsettling then actually experiencing emotion. I think I just have it in my head that I have to be strong as I have no-one to depend on in my day to day life. This is the...
