I Sometimes Hate Talking About What Is Bothering Me

    I Feel Like I'm Defending My Emotions

    I'm usually happy around others, I push things down when in public so no one will ask me what is wrong, but on those days when I cannot hide it; it all pours out to whomever asks me at the right time. I try to give an all around background of what the problem is and how I feel...

    But when I do want (or need) to talk about it,

    everyone is sleeping. I wish I could just talk about it when people ask.

    Unspoken Guilt

    "What's wrong?" He asked in a hushed tone, as not to be overheard by the other students passing by. I sighed, and pursed my lips. There is no way I could explain it to him. where would I start, anyways? "Just...the usual ****..." I reply, keeping my gaze down, and away from him...

    I've learned to never really talk about my

    feelings because alot of people think it's stupid and take it as a weakness. and also I feel like I'm being selfish and I don't like weighing all my problems on someone's shoulders not knowing what to do.

    It feels endless sometimes

    and if it's and issue in which we cannot resolve, why go over it again? I get that talking things out is good, no matter the type of relationship (mother/child, siblings, friends, lovers); however, sometimes it is best left alone. Not every emotion I feel is how I should feel. I...

    Sometimes...

    I just don't want anyone to know.  I don't them to give me those sad, pathetic looks.  I don't want them to become offended.  I don't want them... And then, sometimes, I just know that they don't care.  And why would I want to talk about something personal to...

    Tried talking about something bothering me

    today. Every time I do that I instantly regret mentioning it. Maybe it's just me, but I always feel like I'm being invalidated for how I feel or what I think. And that's when I know keeping to myself is the easy way out of it all.

    Feels Kind of Odd...

    doing the on-line discussion group/support group thing for people who don't like to talk about whats bothering them.  Odd...but yet it makes sense.  Take me for example, I keep a very small social circle in my life and even though right now i'm going through a very...

    Believe It Or Not

    Despite the number of words that I can share here, when it comes to things that truly bother me or pain me, I can't seem to convey them in the same way. There are many things I want to say, but they don't translate into words for me, words somehow do not cover them and often I...

    I'd rather try and work it out myself.

    But I do listen to others when they make observations and statements. Experiences can provide general remedies.I'll talk about it when I need to.

    Sometimes I just want distraction

    rather than discussion - and some matters are private; I prefer to figure them out during quiet time alone and then take action rather than speak about them, necessarily.

    I'm very open on every aspect of my life

    but this. I don't want too worry people or be burdonsome. People have their own worries or issues why should I be selfish and add to their burden .

    I don't even know what's wrong with me

    sometimes. All of my emotions are so piled up, and it's hard to know what is actually causing me to feel the way I do. So when people ask me what's wrong, I usually have no clue. And it's irritating. Then they keep on about it, and I just lose patience.

    Even if something is killing me on the inside,

    I usually hate talking to people about it. I feel like I should be able to deal with it on my own.

    Keep It In

    I hate talking about what is bothering me. I have always been a very private person. I try not to let my emotions show through. I put up a wall and don't let anyone in. There is only one person that I feel that I can actually trust to open myself up to. I still don't talk about...

    Just Leave Me Alone Until I'm Ready....

    Something can bother me for ages and ages but there is absolutely no way I will talk about it until I am ready.  If I talk about it too soon (a) it makes it real and so something I have to deal with and (b) I'm not prepared 'cos I don't have a proper plan...

    It's Too Hard.

    I don't like it sometimes because I can never really explain whats bothering me. I have all these random stupid thoughts in my head and I can't really talk about them properly. Sometimes talking about it makes me even more depressed anyway.. it's not like I don't want to talk...

    Want To Be By Myself

    I just want to be myself when I am bothered about something because at that time I think I can not explain anyone what I am going through and they will not understand what I am going through. I just want to be left alone with no one bothering me!

    Different

    If people tend to get relieved when they talk about their problem, I'm not the case. I'll get even more bothered if I talk about it. Maybe it's because 1). I'm the oldest one and I always want to look like a strong person towards my little sister and be someone that my parents...

    What Do You Prefer: Facts Or Stories?

    It's not to often you'll hear me say "I feel ______"  Fill in the blank with a feeling, not a thought.  "I feel ?"  Sometimes I don't even know what I feel.  When I do, I have a hard time saying it.  A few times I wrote fiction...

    OK, Its Pretty Much Always...

    Call it my independent streak, but I tend to internalize everything. I just keep it in and deal with it on my own. Talking about things doesn't seem to help me most of the time. I need a moment to just deal...and then, maybe I'll talk about it.

    I Have Never Talked About the Bad Things In My Life.

      My friends barely know anything about me. The worst things that I have happened to me I keep to myself. I hardly even talk about them on here.
