When the words just won't come out 6,746 People

    I generally don't. I have a therapist

    that I'm contemplating leaving because honestly I can't even talk to the guy. my mouth opens but no words come out. every time I've opened up to anyone they've ****** me over or worse. I don't think I'll ever get over it either.

    trustable about how I feel.

    Yes, its quite offen

    that I can't tell people who are really close to me that they are hurting me ... just because I wouldn't want them to be hurt by my saying so.

    I am grieving..lost my grandma a few months

    I can't express the feelings I'm feeling right

    now. Maybe lonely, depressed, or overwhelmed. I usually go on ep to help others when they're feeling down, and I post when I'm feeling down. But I feel stuck in my life right now, and I feel like I'm in a never ending circle. Everyday I wake up go to school, come home and do...

    I don't bottle things up... not intentionally at least. I have somebody that I would like to share everything with, someone whom I trust completely, but it seems that sometimes the words just won't come. As much as I trust this person, I find that I can't even trust myself...

    but you can't comprehend. So they say just move on, get over it, grow up and ect.. Which makes me want to cut their throats but I won't. So I keep all my pain inside and when I find a quiet dark corner I cry until I no longer have tears. Then I fake a smile and cover with...

    most people can't handle it,

    and I can't bear to see the pain, fear, confusion if I do start explaining. Sometimes I don't have the words, its only a feeling and too difficult to describe.

    My spouse is a narcissistic as*hole. When,he is angry, he verbally abuses me. I am the main wage earner. I work nights. I constantly have this used against me in arguments. His mental illness(es) are used, by him, as tools of guilt. I am not allowed to expect him to help care...

    I agree with most people on here

    that I feel like a burden when I talk about my emotional issues, I feel like I'm complaining, and I feel confusing and like I'm going crazy. But sometimes I literally can't talk about what's hurting me because I don't actually know why I'm so sad or in so much pain. It's...

    but I wish I had someone to talk to that already knew the backstory of the other characters involved. And could just listen and maybe offer advice without thinking of benefitting themselves or another particular person.

    Putting it into words is the hardest part about

    talking to someone who wants to know why I'm hurting inside.. If I could, I would open up my heart and let everything gush out all at once, but something is stopping me. I don't know what it is.. It just makes me freeze up and push everything down deeper into the infinite, black...

    I believe that the heart does go on the path,

    but once it is broken; the pain, scar and gaps between another's heart has been tearing apart and unable to seal back.

    Talk about your feelings.

    If you believe in God,
