    Irritated

    It really irritates me that you folks who loose your emotions come here to EP and whine about it.  Why don't you keep up with your emotions?  Just put them in the dresser drawer or somewhere you can find them.  Loosing your emotions!  I think I lost my...

    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...

    When you push people away but in a twist you dont even mind the chaos so long as no one has to watch you go through it. Paint on a smile, and never take others down with you.
