You’re worried your emotions will make you appear weak — and you don’t want anyone to think they can take advantage of you.
You’re worried someone will use your emotions against you in the future — and you don’t want them to have ammo to hurt you.
You aren’t in touch with your emotions. You can’t express how you’re feeling because you don’t even understand how you’re feeling yourself.
You hesitate to express your emotions because you don’t want to be a burden to your loved ones. You don’t want them to worry about you, so you pretend you’re perfectly fine.
You need to trust someone fully in order to open up to them. And unfortunately, there aren’t many people you can trust around.
You tend to run from your negative feelings and distract yourself from them. Saying how you feel out loud would make them too real.
You’re obsessed with the idea of other people liking you. You don’t like to show any emotion other than happiness because you’re worried people will consider you difficult or dramatic.
You feel like no one else could possibly understand what you’re experiencing. You feel like they wouldn’t get it, so talking to them could make you feel even worse.
You don’t want to end up saying something you regret. You don’t want to say words that you can never take back.
You’ve learned to rely on yourself — and to not trust anybody else. You don’t see the point in expressing your emotions to others when you can handle your sh*t on your own.
You don’t let yourself think about your emotions, let alone talk about them. You bottle up your feelings until you snap.
You have so many feelings that you don’t know where to start. You don’t know how to put so much emotion into words.
