Not as much as I used to, but I'm not very good at hiding my emotions. If I have an emotion I express it and I think the more we are ourselves the closer we connect to others. The problem with allowing ourselves to be vulnerable in this way, is that not everyone is comfortable with it. I've found I've installed a little fence to protect it from those who might take advantage. smile001.gif

Nope, buried deep, locked it up, and threw away the key!

Sometimes. I'm told I have a monotone type voice, so I could be very happy and few would know by the way I talk, but sometimes I do get quite emotional.


I do and it tends to get broken a lot. But I don’t know any other way.

I'm the same, and I know how you feel smile003.gif


What heart?

KKGator Level 9 Mar 24, 2018

Nope, and I don't appreciate being treated like there's something wrong with that (not by you, OP--by people in my life who are more floridly demonstrative).

Just because I don't show my feelings (like you do) doesn't mean I don't feel my feelings, or that I'm "bottling" them. It means the conduits that translate my inner workings to my outer apparatus are narrower than yours. That's not a defect; that's a natural variation.

FFS, people: there's no right way to do feelings.

@AMGT I thought about including a disclaimer but I declined for the sake of brevity--and because I already mentioned natural variation and not bottling, I'd hoped those sentiment would carry over. The invisible implication is "there's no wrong way to healthily do feelings"


No. That is not wise.

wordywalt Level 8 Mar 24, 2018

In general, yes, but there are times when prudence or diplomacy dictates not to.


Far to often.

Donna_I Level 7 Mar 24, 2018

I should probably do that more often

Rudy1962 Level 9 Mar 24, 2018

One could probably say I do. I refuse to hide my emotions.


You bet


I usually do... Im not good at hiding them, so I don't try to hide them


Pretty much. And it gets beat up a lot, but I'm supposed to be grown-up enough to take it. And now, I shall go hide in my corner.

I gave it to someone and she never gave it back.

Will I save a spider of course they are a tinny creature that can be crushed with my little finger. Would step in to keep someone from getting hurt, yes cleaning up blood is difficult. Can I euthanize a hurt or sick animal yes with out a second thought.

azzow2 Level 8 Mar 24, 2018

No, no thoughts. Just no.

Clare Level 7 Mar 24, 2018

I pull them out as I need to.


What does that even mean? I’ve heard it used before, but I’ve just blown it off.

@atheist lol, ok...

@Deveno I thought it was LOLspeak smile002.gif


It is a platatude that to me, signifies a weak, overly emotional person lacking in self-control. The kind I avoid.

dahermit Level 7 Mar 24, 2018

Yes I am terrible at hiding my emotions. Except crying. I do not cry in public. Grew up with a day that beat it into me that big boys don’t cry. I won’t do that to my son.

Donto101 Level 7 Mar 24, 2018

Yea, I can be a sap sometimes.

Paul628 Level 8 Mar 24, 2018

Sometimes too much. Especially if I'm in a place of need and loneliness. Like now.

kmdskit3 Level 8 Mar 24, 2018

Yes to much
