Or I Did...

For the longest time...I could not share emotions with people...a good long time...

When I met the core group of friends I have now...I started letting them go...until I was a normal person in the society...But only recently, I have come to realize (or assume) that I was wrong to do so...When I kept my emotions to myself...I felt...in better control...I could choose, how I felt or should feel...even though that may sound...unorthodox or unhealthy...It worked...

Now, people know how I feel...and I feel like I lost that control...

Personally...I never thought showing my emotions ever helped me...I was doing fine when I didn't...

Your comment helped me. People say they want to know your true feelings but get disappointed when you do. They want you to show them a brief blast of disappointment and then they want to get a kick out of quickly "fixing" it for you with words of comfort and then for you to be fine again and thankful to them. But it's never really like that. If you are unhappy about something then it goes on and on and they can't fix it. A few words of comfort won't help. So maybe there's no point in showing them the emotion in the first place.
