It's Only Human

 Why, do we try to hide our emotions? Isn't that what makes us human? Isn't that what life is all about?

  When we hide our emotions then we get boring. We become like everyone else, we loose ourselves and become disheartened, upset, mean, boring, etc.

  I agree we shouldn't just throw our emotions out there to everyone 24/7, but shouldn't we be able to express our emotions and feelings and not get ridiculed for them?

  I find that I hide my emotions most of the time because I'm tired of being ridiculed for being human. I think I've gotten better to know who I can express myself to and be ok doing so.

  I wish people weren't so scared to show there emotions.

Ideally we should express and allow ourselves to feel every emotion as it arises. I wish I was better at this. <br />
The thing is some emotions are stigmatized (often unfairly) and many people tend to repress those emotions and instead of allowing themselves to feel and finding healthy ways to express it.

me and u both

Your right NUTZ, I do hide my emotions because of how it makes peole feel. I feel guilty to make them feel that way and I also hate myself for hiding it. It does get confussing at times.

You hide your emotions because of the way they're usually received by others. Im guilty of doing that myself sometimes and I hate myself for that.<br />
Please dont every stop completely having and showing your emotions.
