    To Tired For A Proper Title...

    I always put my foot in my mouth when I speak. Every time. But I can write. I love to write. I've brought people to tears with my stories. I don't need to open my mouth. I just need a pen(cil). I just can't form coherent sentences when speaking. The words don't come to me the...

    But It Feels Like....

    Everything I say comes out wrong somehow. Like somewhere between my heart, my brain, & my mouth, it loses it's meaning. Drives me crazy, probably my family too. I don't think any of them ever know exactly what's gonna come out of my mouth at any given time. Well, at least I'm...

    Locked Up

    I feel like I've lost the ability to communicate effectively in some ways.  I really want to learn to talk more frankly about my own life.  I'm not too bad with talking about other people's lives but I tend to lock up when people ask about mine.  And I feel like...

    I Hate It

    And it is frustrating, me trying to communicate, trying to express myself, but it doesn't come out the way I want it, I don't have to many friends and I don't talk too much, only the people I know for a long time are the ones I feel comfortable talking to, I'm not into arguments...

    Articulation

    It's hard for me to properly articulate what is on my mind, and it frustrates me to no end. I'd like to think that it's because I haven't found the proper words to say what is on my mind, but sometimes, I think these words don't even exist.

    I fired my therapist today.

    A two and a half year relationship, and all I could manage was "I won't be in this week or next. I'm upset about our conversation today and I'm done". I swear, my mouth is connected to me, but sometimes it is NOT mine. Feel like a total loser, that I have learned nothing...

    Expressing Myself.

    I do, I wish I could express myself when I write but I don't seem to be able to do it. I read peoples poems on here, and sit back and take in their stories and experiences, and I am amazed at how the words all seem to flow and fit together. I really want the ability to express...

    I always hold things inside until I can't bear it anymore and something terrible happens. It's just the way I grew to understand the world. I was abused growing up, and telling things never helped only hurt, so I grew to keep so many things secret and locked up. In my college...
