how bad is it when - March 1st 2010, 12:47 AM

I have to put thought and effort into making a facial expression?

I just realized that I never make a facial expression without thinking about it first and deciding witch one I wanna make

I learned how to suppress emotions as a kid it got me out of the spotlight that was killing me and now I can't do anything else


wanna talk?

Hey Daniel,

I'm sorry that you had to start hiding your emotions at such a young age. That must have been tough.

Do you think about it because your not sure what your feeling or because you just don't want to show the emotion? Do you even do it when its a happy situation? I'm sorry. It must be so exhausting to constantly have to hide your emotions.

On here though, you don't have to ya know? You can show your emotions. I know we can't see your facial expressions but, you don't have to supress how you feel.

Since you noticed it, maybe you should try to show what your feeling. I don't know if you have people in your life that you need to hide your emotions from. If you do, then hide it from them, but don't hide it from anyone who is there for you, who is a friend or, someone who wants to help.

I hope your alright.
And by the way, praying for you is useful.
Take care.


Life is to short to put it off anymore
You gotta live it before itís too late
I canít turn that clock back around
On what youíre dreaming about
You better do it now, donít wait

Do something crazy and dumb, while your still young. <3

Need to talk? I'm here. --->

you misunderstand it's not that I don't want to show my emotions it's that I can't I can show happyness because I didn't have that one very often in a situation where I would have to hide it

I know what I am feeling but I don't know how to show it when I was a kid going through the period where most people learn how to do stuff like that I had to hide them because they never did anything but cause embarisment or get me in trouble

Dude, I used to think this too. But, then I mean - how would someone know if they show facial expressions or not? We don't really watch ourselves. Something you could do is ask a close friend 'can you see my facial expressions? Do I have any?' because only people outside looking at you would be able to tell.
