    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...

    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...

    Most Of The Time I'm In Control Of My Emotions

    Although I am a sensitive girl. I must expect too much from people. I know I expect a lot of myself. I give 100 % and maybe even more in a friendship/relationship and am disappointed when it's not returned. I have learned not to have expectations but still am disappointed when...
