Angry/frustrated/upset = cry. - August 13th 2012, 09:31 PM

When I'm angry about anything, I cry. When I get frustrated because of something I cry. Little things, like I can't get my hair to stay where I grip it so I end up getting frustrated, either punching something and crying or both. I try and stop myself but I can feel it inside that I wanna burst in to tears.

It's like I have no other way of expressing myself. I just want to cry all the time. It really pisses me off, because I don't want to cry. If I argue with someone I want to argue back and stand my ground, but the fact that I cry ruins it for me because I look like a right baby. And because I can feel myself about to cry, I feel worse. Even if I try to pretend i'm alright, my voice goes funny and I can feel my eyes watering so people know I'm upest. It's horrible.

I dunno why I'm posting on here. I guess I'm wanting an explanation. I suppose its who I am, but it really sucks and I hate it. On a side note I think this is a major reason for my last relationship breaking down, is how I reacted when we argued. I wish instead of crying, I could actually talk and explain how I'm feeling. But I just can't.

Is anyone else like this? Have you found any way to cope/change?

Thanks for any help.

Sometimes it's better to forget how you feel
and remember what you deserve

I have totally had days where I just get so frustrated and cry at the stupidest things. Its natural to get frustrated but where I have been and where you are, it needs to be resolved. Emotions are a healthy part of life, but not being able to express them properlly results in a lot of problems. I found a great way was to start writing in a journal/diary it helped a lot because I wasn't confronting a real person but myself. I eventually was able to talk to my mom about why I was always getting so frustrated, and things just got better from there. Sports/excersise/yoga/music also helped to calm me down, especially the yoga. I hope something helps you out. Best of Luck!

At a time, I was in the same position as you. I couldn't control myself. When I got angry, I cried. After a while, I realized that the words I siad weren't delivered to people clearly as much when I cried, as to how I would speak in a calm way. After time passed, I was tired of not being understood. So when I had emotional or distubing conversations, I would take deep breathes to stop myself from crying. I would firmly state what I felt I needed to express verbally. So instead of expressng myself through action, I used dialouge. Don't get me wrong! Crying is not bad! It's very healthy for you emotionally and physically. It's not good to keep anger balled up inside. At the same time, it's not good to keep angry or disturbing thoughts balled up inside. You have to make sure you express the angry thoughts, too. Speech is only one way to do so. Though, speech is a very important way. It's almost like a common language- If you can't speak it, many people will not be able to understand you. And if you believe you absolutely can't speak to others about your emotions without breaking down-- You would have to find another way of expressing yourself. Maybe writing letters to people, or writing journals for yourself will help. But, no matter what, you must be able to express your feelings to people in a way that they can understand. You also have to be willing to face what people's reactions will be. I don't believe that you "can't" do it. If you truly want to, you can do anything! And I hope you understand this message, for I too, am still mastering the art of writing.

From one of you,
