    So I'm at university right now,

    and there's so many people I want to talk to. It feels like they're all right there, so close I could touch them, I could speak to them, but it seems so big a task - why? I like to go out, party, drink, all of that... I just find it so hard to be myself when I'm sober. Really...

    It looks pretty funny,

    right? A super fat girl plugging up a barely-there incline, puffing like a mother ******* steam engine. I get it. I look stupid. As a fat person, I'm supposed to hide inside, crying and eating and binge-watching Netflix. To be fair, I bit off more than I could chew...

    Keep It To Myself

    I never really like to discuss my problems with people. I know they have their own worries and I guess I don't really want to add to that or be a burden to them. I guess that's why I like this site so much. It gives me the ability to vent random things or say whatever is going...

    I feel like everything

    that I am feeling right now, love, hate, lust, depression, anxiety is trying to claw it's way out of my body in a frenzy of tears and possibly blood. But no I need to keep my emotions in order. After all... It's better being emotionless than a sobbing mess.

    I always say something stupid

    or try too hard or come off as a jerk or a moron, plus I probably bore everyone and my awkward is a physical, corporeal thing that can even be felt through the Internet.

    I have the feeling that with all I have dealt

    with in life, I probably need the services of a good psychiatrist. If only to offload and for them to say. Relax. You're o.k. The choice of career probably hasn't helped. Walking round with other people's troubles at the forefront of your mind, as well as your own, probably has...

    I Can't Speak. I Can Barely Think.

    Over the years it's become harder and harder to talk about things when I'm upset. I want to, but I can't find the words. The more upset I become, the less responsive I am. My boyfriend will ask me what's wrong, and I'll get out a few words sometimes. He'll try another...

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY… My mind goes blank

    all the time when I'm talking to someone and I don't know why that is! I never know what to say and I hate awkward silences! I find that when I talk to someone I do talk more than the other person! I'm fine with initiating the conversation such as hey how are you etc but I...

    Has Anyone Else Felt This Way?

    Sometimes I want to tell someone something and the moments leading up to it I play it all out in my head. It seems easy, even if I picture a bad reaction from the other person. But when I'm actually there face to face with them I can't get the words out. Sometimes I'll even tell...

    I feel like I need to talk to someone,

    but I just can't open up. When I talk about my past it's like I'm reliving if, so I don't like talking about it.

    I want to talk to guys I see outside in public

    but I get so nervous and shy. When I'm outside I just stare at them, when they catch me staring I usually look some other way or I just smile then keep it moving hoping he tap me on my shoulders but that doesn't happen. I'm not a flirter at all.

    It's more like I want to vent

    but it's hard or near impossible for me to do so. It's just..it's hard and I don't need to be listened to. I don't want to, but thanks for those who wanted to lend your ears to me on my previous post although I did not even try to speak :)
