Finding it hard to feel emotions... - July 12th 2011, 02:50 AM

Hardly anything gives me emotion. There are only a few things... anger, and that takes a lot, someone punching me or something. Depression, which I get a lot. And then there's a weird mixture of care, misery, anxiety and a want to reach out and help, whenever I see her upset.

But beyond those three situations, nothing affects me. You could show me a picture of a person's dead body, nothing. Picture of my birthday party when I was 3, nothing. It's like it takes something really big to actually make me feel anything. and I hate myself for it, it's like I'm a fucking machine or something..

When I was that way, I realized it was because I was SCARED to feel emotion..maybe you're having this too? I was so used to having unhappy thoughts that I wasn't letting myself feel anything because I was scared of new unhappiness..you have to let that go, and there will be more balance. Good luck

realize for whatever reason your mind has not yes given up completely...if it had you would be gone. there must be something there you are still wanting. still holding on to... find it thats how i made myself feel again. that and maybe try starting new. i do this still if i find myself in a routine. clean absolutely everything out in your life, maybe try writing or drawing or just talking this is all what i did and i am seemingly okay now. feel free to PM me any time


Live and let live
