    Aware Of Everything Around Me

    I am so aware of everything that is going on around me that I tend to get myself worked up over nothing. I start to feel it boil inside me until I can't control it anymore. I then lash out at someone, usually the person that means the most to me. In the most recent event (http...

    Most Of The Time

    There are times that I wish that I could just shut down my emotions or at least get rid of one altogether. I would do almost anything to have an on and off switch for my feelings.When I was a teenager my emotions used to just shut down and I wouldn't feel anything at all (not...

    It Would Be Nice

    then I wouldn't be hurt so much and not as trusting as I should be.  I am practicing this "be more trusting" theory.  Sucking so far.

    Being Alone

    If nothing else, I wish I had the control to crush love. To eradicate it from my very being. To stop caring about a person who at one point....well, they felt important.But they're nothing. Nothing to me any more. And I still have this blasted aching feeling, and I want rid of it...

    Separate

    I sometimes think my emotions are a separate entity with a mind of their own.  They creep up on me when I least expect it.   I had such a happy morning, just doing chores around the house and messing and cuddling with my dogs.  Mugs of tea and toast and half...

    Bad At It

    I am not good at handling my emotions. The difficult part is that I am very sensitive and get hurt easily. I have learnt from experience that it is not wrong to be sensitive but it is wrong to show people my vulnerability, so I pretend like I am tough. Small things disturb me...
