I feel like I have to hide my emotions because it is what I have learned to do since I was little. I was always told I was over reacting or I felt I had nobody to talk to because I had few friends and I felt like my family didn't care. As I grew up I had people tell me that I might have problems but everyone else does too, so I should just keep them to myself. I feel like I have to hide my emotions because it is all I have ever been taught to do. But I would also like to add, recently I found this site and have found friends willing to listen and I am ever grateful and happy to share now that I know people care. And I want everyone to know it is okay to share your emotions and ask for help, because a problem shared with someone that cares for you, is a problem halved.
