    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...

    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 cannot express myself.

    I don't know how I am feeling. I don't know what to write now to say what I want to say. Low knowledge of words may be. Still can't figure out how to say what my mind is saying

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
