    I'll Cry If I Want To!

    I have hid my emotions most of my life. My father drilled it in me at an early age. Always reminding me to "get-a-hold of yourself" "Suck it up!" "It's no time to cry!" So I became closed off, not showing emotions, poker face and all. I couldn't understand why everyone had this...

    Take It Or Leave It

    I am sometimes painfully cynical and pessimistic, and other times the biggest optimist you've ever met. My mood changes with the wind, and I make no apologies for it. Sometimes I can't see anything positive, and when I feel like that, I come to EP to release some of that negative...

    My Emotions

    When I was growing up, I didn’t really know what it was like to show your emotions, my family didn’t do that sort of thing. I used to tell my mum that I loved her, and she always said that to me as well, but I can never remember my dad saying that to me, and I guess that I...

    I will no longer apologize for my emotions. Sometimes I don't always have the greatest control over my emotions. Sometimes I feel like I am going to snap. Sometimes I am so happy I can't stand it, or so depressed I feel like suicide is my way out. But my emotions are always real...

    I'm Sorry

    Throughout my life I have been conditioned to feel guilty about everything. I've also always been told that I'm wrong. Over time I grew to accept that I am just always wrong about everything. Before I've even started I have failed. I tell people that I'm sorry before I can make...

    I Am Not a Clown!!!

    All of my life, people have growled at me whenever I had any feelings other than "happy peppy". I use to apologize for when I was sad, angry, upset... but I haven't done so since age 21, when I almost killed by a psychopath.... and lately, I've been slipping back into...

    I Try Too Hard.

    Most of my life, I've tried to hide my emotions, because when I show them, someone always gets offended in one way or another. When I was younger, I expressed myself freely, and I end up apologising to someone when they didn't like it. One of my friends point out to me that my...
