    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...

    The Way My Father Raised Me, ...

    ...to keep my mouth shut, i never really ever became familiar with, and certainly not comfortable with, expressing myself verbally, and i regrettably don't often know how to open my mouth to defend myself - to stand up for my rights. I always fear the other person or persons will...

    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...

    Holding It In Til It Explodes...

    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...

    Don't Call 'friend' When Action Is Not!

    Dear Mr. & Mrs. Coward,It's been so disappointing again for such an arrogant couple like you two who act as if you are truly in love and would like to extend your true love to those people by saying something of making friend. But, both of you are well aware that your actions...

    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...

    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...

    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.
